It was absolute pandemonium on the 18th hole as Tiger Woods made his way to the green knowing he had two putts to win his first Masters title since 2005. And then the whole place erupted with emotion, with Woods pulling out his trademark fist pump but clearly with some extra relief after the long wait for his 15th major. It has been a long road to recovery for the 43-year-old, one which he thought was nearly impossible just two years ago. But a remarkable return from injury in 2018 yielded a win at the season-ending Tour Championship, leading to hopes and expectation that he could challenge for a major in 2019.

The $9 million showdown in 2018 drew nearly one million customers paying the $19.95 pay-per-view subscription, according to Golf World. That of course was soured when the purchasing mechanism broke down early during play, and Turner had to … [Read more...] about Report: Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson clash ‘The Match’ will return, in some form, in 2019-20
