Tiger Woods: US Masters champ favourite to enjoy more major success
Apr 16, 2019, 00:18
A fifth green jacket, his first major win in 11 years; a story that the world had resigning itself to never seeing again. He won the tournament by a single stoke, sinking a foot-long putt on the 18th hole and pumping his right fist before throwing his arms up in the air as tousands of fans on hand erupted in chants of "Tiger!".
It was anyone's game until Francesco Molinari, who earlier hit 8-iron in Rae's Creek on the 12th hole for double bogey, hit a wedge off a tree limb and into the water on the par-5 15th that led to double bogey.
The mystery United States punter placed an $85,000 (£64,900) bet on Woods winning the Masters with William Hill, two days before the tournament teed off, winning the life-changing sum from the 14/1 odds. Prior to Sunday, Woods hadn't won a major championship since his victory at the US open in 2008.
Woods also set a record for the longest gap between Masters triumphs, the 14 years since his last win in 2005 eclipsing the old mark set by South African Gary Player who won his second Augusta crown in 1961 and his third in 1974.
In fact, the American professional golfer, according to Wikipedia, is considered the greatest of all time, ranking second in both major championships and PGA Tour wins.

It completes a fairytale comeback to the pinnacle of golf for Woods, whose career imploded after a 2009 sex scandal before unraveling amid injuries and personal problems.

Whether he truly believed that he'd never return to professional golf again we'll perhaps never know, but Tiger underwent spinal fusion surgery nearly two years ago to the day, an operation that along with the levels of determination and desire to return that only some champions have, put him back on the road to recovery.
Written off as too old and too beaten up from four back surgeries and multiple knee operations, Woods underwent a back fusion procedure in 2017 and slowly returned to form.
"That win at East Lake was a big confidence-booster for me because I had come close previous year a couple times, which still have to get it across the finish line, and I didn't quite do it", said Woods, who will rise to sixth when the world rankings are updated on Monday. "I always felt like I could do pretty much anything physically, but for a while there, I just couldn't even walk". "Whether he admits it or not, I'm sure this one is one of the most important or biggest [wins]". I couldn't sit, couldn't lay down.
President Donald Trump praised the win, tweeting: "Love people who are great under pressure".
Putting aside some of the unseemly parts of Tiger's past that led to the end of his marriage and contributed to his golf downslide, his comeback is truly remarkable.
