Tiger Takes It


Been under a rock for the last 24 hours? That would be the only reason you missed the news that Tiger Woods regained his title of “champion” at the Masters this weekend. Among those cheering him on? President Trump and former President Barack Obama– both of whom took to Twitter yesterday to congratulate Woods, who last took the “green jacket” in 2005.

Following Woods' victory, Trump tweeted "Congratulations to Tiger Woods, a truly Great Champion." Obama offered, “To come back and win the Masters after all the highs and lows is a testament to excellence, grit, and determination.”

To review, Woods shot a two-under par in the final round today and finished 13-under for the tournament. Aside from being his first Masters win since 2005, it’s also Woods’ fifth Masters overall. By the way...his paycheck for the tourney? A cool $2-million.

This is also Woods' 15th Major win, second only to Jack Nicklaus who has won 18 Majors in his career.
