On Sunday, April 14, 2019, at the Augusta National, the 43-year-old won his first Masters since 2005 and his first major title since 2008, when he managed to win the U.S. Open.

According to Rahul Lal, a fan on Twitter, even more important than Woods' victory was his "athlete/sports relationship," which only comes close to Serena William's in tennis.

AN INCREDIBLE FIGHTING SPIRIT

Despite spending 14 years without winning the prestigious trophy, Woods never gave up and still showed the world that he still has what it takes to compete at the highest level.

The Masters title was a very happy ending to a story full of obstacles, struggles and pain, mainly due to back injuries that brought his fantastic career to a halt in 2014.

A SERIES OF MISFORTUNES

It has been reported that, at the time, the golfer, who is considered to be one of the most dominant athletes in the history of the sport, began complaining about his back.

The issue soon became worse and the Woods started experiencing back spasms, which forced him to skip the Arnold Palmer Invitational tournament.

The pain was reportedly too much for Woods to handle and he wasn't even able to compete in the Masters that year. He had to undergo a microdiscectomy for a pinched nerve, which was believed to be the source of the problem.

BACK WITH A BANG

However, despite his return to the green in late June of 2014, Woods had to be submitted to a second microdiscectomy in 2015. The back spasms returned two years later, but a couple more surgeries allowed the star to bounce back.
