"I am literally in tears watching @TigerWoods this is Greatness like no other", tweeted 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion Serena Williams.

Nike quickly released an ad to celebrate Woods' 15th major championship win on Sunday.

Somewhere in the United States, a gambler was striking a very similar pose.

"I was very lucky to be given another chance to do something that I love to do".

"To witness that, a handful of years ago I don't know a lot of people believed that Tiger would win another major".

"I couldn't lay down, I couldn't do much of anything".

"Luckily I've had the procedure where that's no longer the case and I can do this again". But then all of a sudden, I realized I could actually swing a golf club again.

And now it's all pieced back together - his life, his back, even golf. I can leave saying I gave it my all. "It's got to be right up there, with all the things I've battled through".

Tiger Woods won his 15th major this past weekend, prevailing at The Masters for the first time since 2005.

With fans chanting his name, an emotional Woods walked off the 18th green and hugged his mother Kultida, daughter Sam and son Charlie just as he had embraced his late father Earl there after his first major victory at the 1997 Masters. In 2017, he was in the spotlight again when he was found asleep at the wheel of his vehicle, later pleading guilty to reckless driving. But this win nearly guarantees that Woods won't have odds as long as 14-1 again. I really felt that I was starting to shape the golf ball, and my putting was starting to come around. Six players had at least a share of the lead at one point on the back nine - four of them major champions - and there was a five-way tie for the lead when the final group was in the 15th fairway.

Woods' return to the upper echelon of competitive golf just as the season kicks off is "enormous" for the game of golf, Ritter said.

Next year's U.S. Open is at Winged Foot in suburban NY, a course at which Woods has found less success: He missed the cut at the 2006 U.S. Open and finished tied for 29th at the 1997 PGA Championship. "I kind of liked it". "My dad was here in '97 and now I'm the dad with two kids there".

Putting aside some of the unseemly parts of Tiger's past that led to the end of his marriage and contributed to his golf downslide, his comeback is truly remarkable. "So maybe next time it will be better for me, but it was nice to be out with him. Seeing how healthy he was and how much fun he was having playing the game a couple falls ago when we were at home, he had plenty to go win". I'm sure there are probably ones you can argue.

"It's great to see Tiger doing well, but the way he was playing previous year I think we all knew it was coming sooner or later, " said Molinari, who outplayed Woods in the final pairing of the final round to win the British Open last July.

'The energy out there was brilliant with Tiger being there, ' said Molinari, who also played alongside Woods in the final round at Carnoustie previous year.
