The old Tiger Woods made a habit of rewriting record books. Sunday, the older Tiger Woods rewrote our memories at the Masters Tournament.

Golf’s greatest comeback story isn’t Ben Hogan anymore. At least, not for the current generation. Now, it’s Tiger Woods after he stunningly won his fifth Masters. Woods himself believed that he was done, and he said as much two years ago at the Masters champions dinner. Yet there he was last evening, wearing the familiar champion’s green jacket over his equally familiar throwback red mock turtleneck.

Tiger Woods won his 15th major championship.

The sheer depth and breadth of that sentence sends shivers down the spines of fans and detractors of Woods alike. It is a sentence that many thought never would be uttered.

What started as a pipedream when Woods made his return to professional golf in late 2017 after a fourth back surgery earlier that year has grown into a reality during the past 12 months.

 


Golf’s version of a holy week
Masters week has nine days now. And what a nine days it was.

It started on Saturday with the Augusta National Women’s Amateur (“Women make big impression at Augusta,” April 8). It might have been the most compelling round of golf I've witnessed since some guy won the U.S. Open while playing on a broken leg a few years back. And do we call that pin position on 18 “Jennifer's pin” now?
