Tiger Woods Makes One of World's Greatest Comeback Ever

Tiger Woods Makes One of World's Greatest Comeback Ever
Published: 15 April 2019 (200 Views)
It had been 11 years since Tiger Woods had last won a major tournament.

At 43 years old, and having had multiple back surgeries, it appeared as though Wood's last triumph at a major would be the 2008 U.S. Open.

But in the mix in the last day of the Masters, Woods drew in casual golf fans from all over the globe to tune in to see if he could do it, with  Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola openly admitting he might watch the tournament over Liverpool-Chelsea.

Woods did not disappoint either, winning by a single stroke to claim his fifth career Masters win, along with his 15th victory in a major.

The win comes 22 years after his first win at Augusta in 1997, and 14 his since his previous triumph on the course in 2005.

Some have called it one of sport's great comebacks and stories - though at least one commentator believes Leicester's title triumph in 2015-16 tops it.

But the footballing world was certainly talking during and after seeing Tiger roar once more.   Here is a man whose marriage fell apart over a decade ago, slipped into depression, lost his matches, dumped out of the major tournaments by his competitors,  sponsors fled from him as his disgrace increased and was written off as virtually finished..... After a decade, today the 14th of April 2019,  against all odds, against all hope, he bounced back to being the best in the world. The world witnessed it and marvelled. You know what, it doesn't matter what has happened to you, You can bounce back too**
