Tiger wins the Augusta Masters

Tiger wins the Augusta Masters

1997, 2001, 2004 and 2005 and now 2019, Tiger Woods has returned, the king has returned. He did not win a big one 11 years ago, when he won the US Open. He won the Augusta Masters in a new exhibition. "I'm better than ever," he said before starting the tournament, even though he was not in the Top Ten. However, in an end that accelerated because rain was expected and very close, Tiger kept the blood colder than the rest and in the last three holes. Overcome his last neck injury, and nobody stops him. He won with a -13 ahead of Dustin Johnson, Schauffele and Koepka, all with -12.

It is his Major number 15, only three of the legend Jack Niclaus.

It was, without a doubt, the attraction of the tournament. "Not only will there be thousands of people walking behind him on the golf course, he will light millions of televisions, and that's good for this sport," the organizers said.

And you only had to see the audience that followed him and how they were celebrating their winning shots, especially the last ones.

He has won five titles at the Augusta Masters of 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005 and this one. Three of the United States Open of 2000, 2002 and 2008, three of the British Open of 2000, 2005 and 2006, and four of the PGA Championship of 1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007.

In addition, the Californian achieved eight victories in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, seven in the WGC-Cadillac Championship, three in the WGC Match Play, and three in the Tour Championship.

Woods has won 80 PGA Tour tournaments and garnered 183 top-10s. He led the list of wins on the US circuit ten times in 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2013 and ranked second in 2003, 2008 and 2012. He also excelled in the European Tour, where he has obtained 40 wins and 90 top-10s.
