Tiger Woods calls Masters win 'unreal', says he's happy family saw win

Francesco Molinari and Brooks Koepka

The putter won in the auction on Saturday is one of a few backup putters that Woods receives each year from Scotty Cameron to test, practice and experiment with, but it was never used in tournament play.

That Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Xander Schauffele, Bubba Watson, Ian Poulter, Brooks Koepka, Bernhard Langer and Adam Scott stood to shake the hand of a victorious Tiger Woods as he headed to sign his Sunday scorecard at Augusta National proved a sign of things to come.

The director of trading for the United Kingdom-based company's US operations, Bogdanovich told USA Today that the sportsbook took an overall loss of "seven figures" on Woods' win, his first at the Masters since 2005 and first major of any kind since 2008.

It was the fifth Masters title for Woods, his first since 2005, and it moved him three shy of the all-time record 18 majors won by Jack Nicklaus.

This is a breaking news story. Grown men were absolutely giddy with excitement about the prospects of Tiger winning again.

Along with coping with a number of injuries over the past decade, Woods also had to deal with the damage done from a very public and scandalous divorce and an embarrassing DUI arrest.

"It means the world to me", he said. "When I tapped the putt in, I don't know what I did but I know I screamed".

"I'll tell him I was there when Tiger won his 15th major in the final group", Finau said.

"I'm just ecstatic for golf and I'm ecstatic for Tiger, " Johnson said.

But after seeing a specialist in England, Woods underwent fusion surgery, his fourth back procedure, in the US.

"Three years ago I said to my caddie and to everyone in my camp "I'm going to make a hole in one here one day" and sure enough it was my first one three years later", DeChambeau said.

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. "I always felt like I could do pretty much anything physically, but for a while there, I just couldn't even walk".

Fortunately the American saw it out and won his 15th major, 11 years after his 14th, and his fifth win at the Masters. I couldn't sit. Couldn't lay down. "At the previous Champions Dinner I was really struggling and missed a couple of years of not playing this great tournament and now I'm the champion".

Woods's return to the top garnered praise from world leaders and sporting greats alike, with United States president Donald Trump and his predecessor Barack Obama both offering congratulations via social media.

"Luckily I've had the procedure where that's no longer the case and I can do this again".

"We actually want our players to get their wins", DraftKings' Jamie Shea said. "And with six or seven guys with a chance to win the championship it got a little complicated but fortunately I was able to hit some of my best golf shots all week".
