Woods draws TV crowd, despite early Masters start

Serena Williams

"The roar of the Tiger is back!"

Such talk, while Woods battled a potentially career-ending back injury, was widely dismissed as little more than politeness from someone who could hardly say anything else.

Woods picked up his first major for 11 years on Sunday night, winning his fifth Masters with an incredible final round to capture another famous green jacket.

Jack Nicklaus has always believed a healthy Tiger Woods would equal or surpass his record of 18 major championships, even if he was joking when he said the prospect had him "shaking in his boots". It could be a bigger win if Woods goes on to win the other three majors this year.

The next two are at venues well suited to his game and where he has won - the PGA Championship at Bethpage and the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach where he triumphed by a massive 15 strokes.

His peers think Sunday's victory could loosen the dam wall, if not completely open the floodgates. "I can't remember how many Grand Slams I have".

Bettors jumped on Woods early and often over the course of the week, intensifying their investment in him as he got off to a good start in the tournament. "A big "well done" from me to @TigerWoods!", said Nicklaus on social media.

It also seems that news of Wood's win and perhaps live viewers wanting to watch some history one more time was a victor for CBS Sports too.

President Donald Trump and Barack Obama were among those hailing Woods on social media after registering a thrilling and emotional Masters victory on Sunday.

Molinari, who also won the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in March, added: 'I learnt a lot from today, from the whole week.

For the PGA Championship later this summer, Woods and Johnson are both tied with 9/1 odds. To not only be able to play again, but to be able to win again, is something I will forever be grateful for. "I didn't know what was happening".
