It was a long time coming — 14 years to be exact — but Tiger’s victory on Sunday at legendary Augusta National seemed fitting.

Who would have thought that Woods, 43, who had back surgery in 2015, would be healthy enough to even challenge for another major title let alone win another one?

But he did and it was incredible to watch.

You couldn’t help but smile when Woods drained his tournament-clinching putt on 18 for his fifth green jacket and followed it with an emotional celebration with his children and mother.

It was reminiscent of an embrace that Tiger shared with his late father, Earl, 22 years ago after he won his first title at Augusta.
