Many thought Tiger Woods would never win again let alone win a Major. But after 4 back surgeries and many, many months of rehab and uncertainty, the 43 year old won his 15th Major in Augusta – 14 years removed from his last Masters. The leaderboard was very crowded on Sunday with a variety of golfers moving up and down. However, Woods was the only one who was able to stay the course as others faltered down the stretch. He showed how to play Augusta National and play conservative when necessary. Some may argue that it wasn’t as much Woods winning but more so the the stead fast Francesco Molinari making uncharacteristically mistakes down the stretch with 2 bogies and 2 double bogies.
Woods did what he had to take the lead and hold on including a bogie on #18 to win by 1 stroke.
