Tiger Woods Wins First Major Title In Eleven Years

Tiger Woods clinched his fifth Masters after his last one came eleven years. It was also 15th major title as he sealed one of the the greatest comeback stories in sport.

The 43-year old won a tightly contested tournament by one shot at Augusta for his first Masters win since 2005.

Woods have had to endure injury and bad form for a while to win the Masters which now puts him three majors behind the all-time record of Jack Nicklaus.
Speaking after the win, Tiger said: “It’s overwhelming just because of what has transpired,” Woods said in the Green Jacket ceremony in the Butler Cabin.”
“Last year I was very lucky to be playing again. At the previous Champions Dinner I was really struggling and missed a couple of years of not playing this great tournament and now I’m the champion. Twenty two years between wins, it’s a long time and it’s unreal for me to experience this. My Mom was here, she was there in 1997 as well. I’m just so happy and excited and I’m at a loss for words.”
