This is Woods fifth Masters and a first major win in 11 years.
Sunday afternoon (April 14) Tiger Woods has won the Masters tournament, his first major win in 11 years. The win marks an official comeback for the athlete after more than a decade of scandals and career lows.
The 43-year-old golf pro walked up to the 18th hole as the crowd cheered, reminiscent of years prior when Woods dominated the sport.
After clinching the title, Tiger smiled and threw his fist in the air. He then hugged his son in the same place he once hugged his father after a Masters win.
However, Tiger’s win was also met with mixed reviews by those who remember the player’s past offenses, comments, and association.
This is Tiger Woods’ fifth Masters and after the game, he briefly spoke about the importance of the moment 22 years after his first win.
“It’s come full circle,” Woods said after the win. “It’s a special feeling.”
