In the spring of 2014 Tiger Woods was at work on the range around the back of his house, practising his short game like always. Days earlier he had shot a 78 on the final day of the Cadillac Championship, the worst fourth-round score of his life. His back had been spasming but he felt he had to get out and exercise. He stroked a flop shot over a bunker and the minute he had finished the swing he fell down flat on his back, overcome with a pain so severe that he could hardly breathe, let alone get back on his feet. He was out of hearing distance and he did not have his mobile phone on him, so there was nothing he could do but lie there and wait for someone to come. It was his seven-year-old daughter, Sam, who found him. “Daddy,” she said, what are you doing lying on the ground?” “Sam, thank goodness you’re here,” he told her. “Can you go tell the guys inside to try to get the cart out to help me back up?” “What’s wrong?” … [Read more...] about Was Tiger Woods’s Masters win the greatest comeback in sporting history?

Tiger Woods did the unthinkable Sunday and pulled off his first Masters victory since 2005 – his first major tournament win in more than a decade. Legendary sports broadcaster and Fox News contributor Jim Gray, who was at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia for the event, appeared on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday and detailed the experience of seeing Woods win. TIGER WOODS STARS IN NIKE AD RELEASED AFTER MASTERS WIN “It was an exhilarating moment. It was joyous. It was exuberance. And Tiger Woods and everybody who was in attendance. It’s something none of us will ever forget. There wasn’t a dry eye there,” Gray told host Bill Hemmer. Gray said “nothing will ever compare” to Woods winning because of the ups and downs he had experienced over the course of his career. “This is a moment that will go down, not only in golf history but in sports history. From where he was to come back after the scandal and after … [Read more...] about Tiger Woods’ first Masters win since 2005 was ‘just spectacular,’ Jim Gray says
When Tiger Woods won the Masters for the first time in 1997 the first person he met when he came off the 18th green was his father, Earl. Twenty-two years later, when he won it for the fifth, it was his 10-year-old son, Charlie, and his 11-year-old daughter, Sam. “It feels like I’ve come full circle,” Woods said. “My dad was here in 97 and now I’m the dad with my two kids.” He said how disappointed he had been when they watched him lose the Open to Francesco Molinari last year. “I wasn’t going to let that happen again,” Woods said, “For them to see what it’s like to have their dad win a major championship, I hope that’s something they will never forget.” Woods did not want to say exactly where this win ranked among his 15 majors. “It’s got to be right up there,” he said, along, you would guess, with that famous first Masters. “With all the things that I’ve battled through, … [Read more...] about ‘It feels like I have come full circle’ – Tiger Woods celebrates Masters win

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Fallen hero, crippled star, and now a Masters champion again.Tiger Woods rallied to win the Masters for the fifth time Sunday, a comeback that goes well beyond the two-shot deficit he erased before a delirious audience at Augusta National that watched memories turn into reality.Woods had gone nearly 11 years since he won his last major, 14 years since that green jacket was slipped over his Sunday red shirt. He made it worth the wait, closing with a 2-under 70 for a one-shot victory, and setting off a scene of raw emotion. He scooped up 10-year-old Charlie, born a year after Woods won his 14th major at Torrey Pines in the 2008 U.S Open. He hugged his mother and then his 11-year-old daughter Sam, and everyone else in his camp that stood by him through a public divorce, an embarrassing DUI arrest from a concoction of painkillers and surgeries."WOOOOOOO!!!" Woods screamed as he headed for the scoring room with chants of "Tiger! Tiger! Tiger" echoing as loud as any … [Read more...] about Masters 2019: Tiger Woods completes comeback, wins 15th major
