Tiger Woods wins the 2019 Masters and his 15th career major
IN YOUR LIFE?!
Tiger Woods has accomplished what many had said would never happen again yet everybody, deep down, desperately hoped to witness.
Tiger has won another Major. The 2019 US Masters. His 5th Green Jacket. His 15th career major.
Superlatives roll off the tongue thick and fast in a jumbled mix of elation and disbelief.
The win puts him within three majors of the great Jack Nicklaus (18) and has sparked debate as to whether we’re witnessing the greatest comeback in the history of sport.
Woods began the final found tied for 2nd and two shots off the pace. Double bogeys from overnight leader Francisco Molinary on the 12th and 15th gave enough space for Tiger to pounce, which he did with birdies the 13th and the 15th to take a two-shot lead onto the 17th.
A Tiger Woods bogey 18th might be the sweetest bogey ever carded in golf because it didn’t matter one bit. Tiger clinched the Masters and the greatest player in the modern era – if not ever – secured his first major in 11 years.
More to come.
