Tiger Woods Makes History by Winning His Fifth Masters Title
Tiger Woods, arguably the best and most dominant player golf has ever seen, has recently won his fifth Masters and 15th major title in one of the most fantastic comebacks in the history of the sport.
On Sunday, April 14, 2019, the 43-year-old snatched the win at Augusta by only one shot, marking his first big title in the past 11 years.
The Masters was also his first win at the competition since 2005, and the victory was even more special due to all the struggles Woods has gone through since his 2014 injury.
FIVE YEARS OF PAIN
Sunday's victory was the peak of his fairytale return
At the time, Woods was forced to withdraw during the final round of The Honda Classic due to back issues and later missed the Arnold Palmer Invitational because of back spasms.
Since then, he has been submitted to several back surgeries, including a career-saving spine fusion surgery in 2017, which allowed him to recover and get back on the green.
After his amazing recovery, Sunday's victory was the peak of his fairytale return and the title puts him three majors behind Jack Nicklaus, the all-time record holder.
TOO LONG WITHOUT KNOWING THE TASTE OF VICTORY
"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."
The 43-year-old was very emotional and claimed that 22 years between wins is a long time and that it was "unreal" to experience it all over again.
