Tiger Woods just won his fifth Masters cementing one of the greatest comebacks in sports history. This is his first Masters win since 2005 and his first major title in 11 years.
Before moving beyond a third-round deficient to win today’s tournament, Woods had to overcome setbacks with his health and personal life. At one point many thought he’d never compete or win a masters again.
They were wrong.
