On Sunday, April 14, Tiger Woods won the Masters, a championship for professional golf. Tiger has won for the fifth time and also won the Green Jacket at the Augusta National Golf Course in Georgia. Woods won the tournament by one single shot and had 22 birdies and hit 58 out of 72 in the green.

Tiger has competed in many Masters tournaments and out of the 83 of them, he has always either come really close or tied with another golfer when he didn’t win the other four.

“To have the opportunity to come back like this, it is probably one of the biggest wins I’ve had for sure” (Woods). Woods has overcome some adversity and has come so close to many Masters wins, but  he hasn’t won a Masters since 2005.

He is tied for second-most all time, and two behind the most decorated Masters champion since 1997. Woods has won the Masters in 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005, and 2019 and has received a green jacket for each win.

After Woods won for the fifth time, he passed Arnold Palmer and is now one behind Jack Nicklaus in green jackets and is three majors behind Nicklaus’ record of 18.

Tiger placed first while Xander Schauffele placed second, Brooks Koepka third, Dustin Johnson, fourth, and Francesco Molinari, fifth.

Tony Finau who is from Salt Lake City, played in his second Masters tournament and came in eighth and was paired with Tiger Woods and Francesco Molinari.

 

A lot of the competitors had a lot of confidence in Woods this Masters Tournament, “We all know Tiger is back,” said Brooks Koepka who won third place. But did Tiger have confidence in himself? “I had serious doubts (about my golf future) after what transpired a couple years ago,” said Woods after referring to his back problems and four surgeries that caused him to make it hard to walk, sit, or lay down. But it is obvious that Tiger has no problem of coming back after more than five years of being on the DL and having a comeback win.
