Tiger Woods Stages Comeback With Masters Win
The phenom who turbocharged golf as a spectator sport — then fell into a decade-long slump marked by injuries and scandals — pulled off what’s being hailed as a remarkable comeback yesterday at the prestigious Augusta National. The 43-year-old nearly dropped off the radar before arriving at the Masters, but Woods broke out of a five-way tie to win his fifth green jacket by one stroke.
What’s different this time? After his victory, Woods hugged his son in nearly the exact same place where he embraced his father, who died in 2006, after his first Masters triumph in 1997.
