Tiger Woods got his first major win 11 years on Sunday, coming back to win first place at the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia; often regarded as one of the most prestigious golf events in the world. The 43-year-old who won his last Masters in 2008, has since fallen out of the golf world stage and got arrested for DUI (Driving Under the Influence) in 2017, but has come back in spectacular fashion.
“Surreal,” Woods said when asked to describe his Masters win, “it’s going to take a bit of time for it to sink in.” This is now Woods’s fifth Masters win, but many feared that it would’ve come up short. Francesco Molinari, who won the 2018 Open Championship, was in the first place spot once again and was playing fluently.
Despite his form, Molinari hit a water hazard in the 12th hole, allowing Woods to take the lead soon after and remain up front for the remainder of the holes. Numerous athletes tweeted to congratulate the golfer upon news of his big tournament win. As of now, we don’t know if Woods will once again compete for another Masters Tournament.
