For the first time in 14 years, Tiger Woods wore red at Augusta National and won The Masters on Sunday. The triumph came in comeback fashion, with Woods coming from two shots back on Sunday to a commanding finish atop the leaderboard at the event he’d won four times before.
With a slew of injuries and back problems, many wondered if Woods would ever win another tournament, let alone another major like The Masters. So seeing Woods triumph was certainly a big sports and cultural moment.
A number of athletes and other notable sports figures reveled in Tiger’s triumph. And even former president Barack Obama congratulated Woods on Sunday.
Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry called it the “greatest comeback story in sports,” forgetting about the Cavaliers comeback against Golden State three NBA Finals ago.
Tom Brady loved seeing Tiger come out on top, too. He live-tweeted the final round on Sunday and was clearly rooting for Woods.
The greatest women’s tennis player ever, Serena Williams, loved the comeback, too.
Plenty of NBA players loved seeing Tiger get back on his GOAT.
Basically everyone was searching for the tiger emoji on Sunday, and for good reason. Golf is more fun when Tiger is winning, and Sunday’s victory was a long time coming.
