Nike releases emotional commercial celebrating Tiger Woods' Masters win

Posted April 16, 2019

Tiger Woods, with his Masters victory on Sunday, added the longevity label to a career that has changed the face of golf both on and off the course.

Woods has now gone even better, winning his fifth green jacket amid emotional scenes on Sunday at Augusta, as well as earning praise from as far and wide as golf-mad US President Donald Trump, tennis great Serena Williams, and National Football League legend Tom Brady.

Despite a cluster of years that seemed to hack away at the legend of Tiger Woods, the 43-year-old came back this year and won the Masters, adding a fifth green jacket to his wardrobe and earning him his 15th overall major championship win.

Woods defeated fellow golfers Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffle, and Brooks Koepeka by one stroke each, though it was just one part of a very dramatic Sunday - one that included tee times being moved ahead due to the threat of severe weather coming later this evening in Augusta.

At 25, he became the first man to hold the US Open, British Open, PGA Championship and Masters titles at the same time, a feat dubbed the "Tiger Slam" when he completed it at Augusta National in 2001.

Is the Nicklaus record back in play?

Players from across the sport offered congratulations to the champion on social media, including Nicklaus, who said the win was "fantastic for the game of golf". I think - I hope - they will be proud. Now, the only other player with more Masters wins than Tiger is Jack Nicklaus with six.

"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple years ago", said Woods. I really couldn't so much of anything.

The reworked fifth hole, a trouble spot for Woods all week, was once again a headache for the former world number one and he carded a bogey for the fourth straight day.

Koepka has said all week he was focused on his own game and not worrying about what anyone else is doing, but that could prove tough come Sunday with the leaders playing right behind him.

Tony Finau was tied with Woods entering the final round and played in the last group with Woods and Francesco Molinari.

This was one is sure to at least rival it.

"This is definitely, probably one of the greatest comebacks I think anybody's ever seen", Koepka said, before rattling off Woods' total PGA Tour victories and 15 majors. It was the double bogeys that cost him, and the Italian was gracious as ever in defeat.
