Just the opposite of past year when hardly anyone was a Patrick Reed fan when he won, it seemed EVERYONE was a Tiger fan on Sunday. "What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!"

"The level of excitement has reached a completely new level". This win gives Woods 81 PGA Tour titles, one shy of tying Sam Snead's record. Now Woods was a father himself.

"I was trying to push myself, but I feel like I got a very full Masters experience here in my second year". "It's unbelievable how life evolves, changes".

Nike has drawn down its relationship with Woods over the years - now concentrating on his apparel rather than balls or clubs.

"My mom was here, she was here in '97 as well".

"It's hard to comprehend right now". "At that point, I'll hopefully have a few under my own belt".

President Donald Trump, who's visited his branded golf courses more 150 times since taking office, watched Woods cruise toward victory from his course in Virginia.

Samsung Galaxy J6 starts receiving Android 9.0 Pie with One UI
Every time you transition from one screen to the next, apps will follow your usage patterns for a seamless experience. Samsung launched a couple of Galaxy J series phones in the U.S. in the past, so it might happen again at some point.

Midway through Woods' fourth round, it was a dream that looked like coming up short. I hoped my win would open some doors for minorities. He took home the Green Jacket at age 43, well past his prime and plagued with medical issues - from a purely athletic standpoint, that's objectively awesome. Woods has won at both courses.

But there was epic failure in the way so many of his challengers failed to meet the challenge with the championship up for grabs.

"It's insane to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15 major.is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old, "a new Nike ad says".

They're all in the way of what golf really wants to see again.

"Now being in the mix and winning a championship are two totally different things".

Was Tiger's 2019 Masters win his greatest major victory? He just let everyone back in the tournament. "He's been there a lot, been there more than anybody, but it had been a while since he'd been there here, had a chance to win here". He finished the tournament tied for 18th at 6 under - his best placing in the last three years at Augusta.

So many of Tiger's fellow competitors lined up to congratulate him after he won Sunday.

Sudanese military forced to abandon attempt to clear protesters
The military high command has offered the protest leaders the opportunity to name a prime minister, Al Jazeera reported on Sunday. Since his ouster, al-Bashir - president for almost 30 years - has been under house arrest in Khartoum.

Woods also set a record for the longest gap between Masters triumphs, the 14-year spread one year longer than the old mark set by South African Gary Player from 1961 to 1974.

"It's overwhelming just because of what has transpired", Woods added in the Green Jacket ceremony in the Butler Cabin.

"It's great to see Tiger back", said William Hill U.S. director of trading Nick Bogdanovich.

Woods has battled back issues in the past, but Watson said Woods can continue to be successful if he is feeling well.

"It's the best I've felt with a driver in years", Woods said.

It's another thing entirely for a 43-year-old who has endured personal scandal and four surgeries on his back, including spinal fusion two years ago, to end a almost 11-year major championship drought by taking on and beating all challengers on the course he first conquered 22 years ago. "I'm sure he's home in West Palm (Beach, Florida) just chilling and watching".

Mickelson double-bogeyed the 10th hole and didn't make a birdie on the back nine in shooting 72. He pleaded guilty to reckless driving and was put on a diversion program, but from that nadir, Woods' trajectory has reached sky high.
