Tiger Woods made his historic return, taking victory for the fifth time in Masters Tournament history. As one of golf’s most polarizing and popular athletes, Woods validated his career comeback on Sunday, battling the likes of Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele on the fields. The 43-year old, Woods won his fifth Master with a score of -13.
He said,”It’s overwhelming. I think just because of what has transpired, and last year i was just very lucky to be playing again. The previous dinner, the champions dinner, I was really struggling and missed a couple years of not playing this great tournament. To now be the champion, 22 years between wins is a long time.”
The legendary golfer has had some challenging run in over the years. In 2017, Woods was arrested on a DUI charge after he appeared to be confused while police talked to him in the dashcam video of his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence in Florida. Reportedly, Woods was found asleep inside his Mercedes, which was stopped with two flat tires and other damage alongside a roadway.
