Twitter Erupts With Reactions To Tiger Woods’ 2019 Masters Victory

Tiger Woods in the hunt for the lead at the Masters after sinking six birdies on Day 3 at Augusta

In ending an 11-year major drought by winning the Masters, Woods collected his 15th major title, 22 years and a day after it all began in the very same place at Augusta National.

Tiger Woods hugs his family after winning the Masters golf tournament Sunday, April 14, 2019, in Augusta, Ga.

"It's insane to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15th major is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old", the spot said. The hunt is back on for Tiger Woods.

Now Woods, 43, can claim similar longevity. In 1986 Jack Nicklaus won The Masters for a sixth time when he was 46.

Tiger Woods, with his Masters victory on Sunday, added the longevity label to a career that has changed the face of golf both on and off the course.

After battling to overhaul 54-hole leader Francesco Molinari of Italy, Woods birdied the par-5 13 to join a lead pack of five at 12-under.

"In that moment that he won, and I won, what was the most special for me, and it's why I placed the bet in the first place, was just seeing him share that victory with his kids", said Adducci, 39. The tournament kicked off the "Tiger Slam", which would end with his second green jacket at the 2001 Masters.

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.

"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple years ago. I couldn't walk, I couldn't sit, I couldn't lay down, I really couldn't do much of anything", he told reporters.

"I felt if I could somehow piece this together that I still had the hands to do it".

But Nike, which has been a sponsor since 1996, has stuck by him. He finished the tournament tied for 18th at 6 under - his best placing in the last three years at Augusta. That resulted in another $1 million paid back to FanDuel customers.

The amount of exposure that Woods produced for Nike in the final round is almost double the $12 million that Apex estimates Nike gained previous year from Masters victor Patrick Reed.

Still, no matter what obstacles his health put in his path, Woods said he was still confident that he would be on top again. "They just kept betting him".

But Smallwood doesn't see the company ever dropping him. I think it's awesome.

CBS said that made the rerun the third-highest-rated golf broadcast on any network this year. "Obviously he did it today", Watson said. "Because Tiger is back, and he's proven it this week".

"After Friday, gamblers couldn't get enough", Bogdanovich said. Champions always believe, and there have been few serial winners more ruthless than this golfer, whose significance has long-since transcended the game of golf.

President Donald Trump praised the win, tweeting: "Love people who are great under pressure".

Woods himself appears introspective. He went on to win in 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005 before Sunday. How could not one but four players in the last two threesomes find Rae's Creek at the shortest par 3 on the course? "I did the same thing to my dad".

"I hit some of the best shots on that back nine; I just flushed it coming home, which is a nice feeling", said Woods, who couldn't remember much of what happened after he tapped in the final putt except that he screamed.
