Tiger Woods is back! The now five-time Masters winner pulled ahead in the final round after starting two strokes off the lead. This is his first Masters win since 2005.
It took the 43-year-old golf phenom over a decade to end up on top again at a major. He shot a final-round 70 Sunday to win by one stroke over Brooks Koepka, Xander Shauffele and Dustin Johnson.
This is the 15th major championship for Woods, second only to Jack Nicklaus at 18. After Woods’ 14th major championship, many expected him to sail past Nicklaus’ record, but personal problems and three back surgeries threw a wrench into those expectations.
Social media reaction to Tiger’s win has been massive with many fans glad to see him regaining his reputation as one of the world’s best golfers. It’s been a long, hard road for Woods — We’re excited to see what’s next for him!
