What a comeback! After suffering through multiple knee surgeries and 4 back surgeries which had all but ended his illustrious career, Tiger Woods would once again rise to the top with a stunning win at the 83rd Masters Tornament winning his 5th Green Jacket. It was such a historic win that President Trump announced Monday that he will award Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, "because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE."
At 43, Woods is the second-oldest winner of the Masters. In 1986 Jack Nicklaus won The Masters for a sixth time when he was 46. Woods now has 15 major wins, compared to 18 for Nicklaus. "I felt for a long time that he was going to win again. ... He's got me shaking in my boots, guys," Nicklaus told the Golf Channel after Tiger's victory.
"I can’t thank my family, friends and fans enough for their support. Having my family by my side today is something I will never forget. To not only be able to play again, but to be able to win again, is something I will forever be grateful for. This jacket sure is comfortable," Woods said.
