Tiger Woods won his fifth Masters Title on Sunday, April 14th. The 2019 Masters Tournament was held in Augusta, Georgia; it took place at Augusta National Golf Club. By winning this Masters title, it marked his first victory since the 2008 U.S Open. Woods shot 13 under par through the tournament.

This victory was unforgettable due to the fact that Woods has had four back surgeries that had him and his fans wondering if he would ever be able to play again. Woods, who’s 43, recently became the second-oldest winner of the Masters at Augusta National, after Jack Nicklaus who won at the age of 46 in 1986. Nicklaus who has won the most Masters Tournaments, said Woods’ win was “fantastic.”

Woods entered the final round tied for second place with Tony Finau, two strokes behind Francessco Molinari.

He finished the Masters with his signature fist bump and hugged his 10-year-old son, Charlie, mother, Kutilda, and 11-year-old- daughter Sam.

Among all those at home watching closely, after his victorious win, President Donald Trump tweeted congratulating him as a “true champion.” Former President Barack Obama also went on Twitter to congratulate the champion writing: “Congratulations Tiger! To come back and win the Masters after all the highs and lows is a testament to excellence, grit, and determination.”

Following his win, Nike, which has sponsored the golfer since the start of his career, tweeted: “Never stop chasing your crazy dream. #justdoit @TigerWoods” and released a commercial starring Woods. Nike signed Woods in 1996.
