Tiger Woods Wins The Masters

Tiger Woods is back!  Tiger won the Masters at 13 under par, as this was his first victory in a Major tournament since he won the U.S. Open in June of 2008.

Tiger’s run as the best golfer in the world was sidetracked shortly after that by multiple back surgeries.

This was Tiger’s 15th major title, and he’s now just three behind record holder Jack Nicklaus, who has 18.

After his victory, Tiger said, quote, “It’s overwhelming, just because of what has transpired. Last year, I was lucky to be playing again.”

The total purse for the Masters was $11.5 million, with Tiger pocketing more than $2 million for winning. Runners up Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele, and Brooks Koepka each got about $869,000.
