Woods, 43, won the tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia by a single stroke after keeping his cool as other, younger golfers went to pieces in the final round. In the end, he chalked up his 15th major victory 22 years after he first won the Masters. He has now won the coveted green jacket five times in all.
A family affair
Woods screamed and pumped his fist as he realized he'd won, sharing the moment with his children, Charlie and Sam. Yahoo! reports he said, “I'm a little hoarse from yelling... When I tapped the putt in, I don't know what I did; I know I screamed. To have my kids there, it's come full circle. My dad was there in '97 [when he won for the first time], and now I'm the dad.”

Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus tweeted congrats to Woods, writing, "A big 'well done' from me to @TigerWoods! I am so happy for him and for the game of golf. This is just fantastic!!!" President Trump, who has played with Woods on occasion, also had kind words:
Congratulations to @TigerWoods., a truly Great Champion!
