A lot of people had kind of written Tiger Woods off.
Over the past decade, instead of producing championships, he’d produced a steady stream of negative headlines: Stories of extramarital affairs, a DUI arrest and debilitating injuries. But he put all that behind him April 14 at the Masters, winning it for the fifth time and capturing his 15th major title (and his first major title in 11 years.)
It’s one of sports’ all-time great comeback stories, which sparked an ebullient celebration at Augusta National Golf Club.
Woods is now just three majors behind legend Jack Nicklaus’ all-time record of 18. Which begs the question: Can the Tiger pass the Golden Bear?
