It’s something I’ll never forget - Woods on Masters glory

Rocca was arguably golf's most prominent Italian touring professional until-Francesco Molinari, with whom Woods played in winning his fifth Masters on Sunday.

Mickelson double-bogeyed the 10th hole and didn't make a birdie on the back nine in shooting 72.

Finau, playing in his second Masters, was paired with Woods and Molinari in the day's final grouping. In 1986 Jack Nicklaus won The Masters for a sixth time when he was 46. Since then, Nike stopped making golf equipment, but stuck with golf apparel and the Tiger Woods brand ー leading to a payoff worth $22.5 million in exposure during Sunday's final round, according to the analytics firm Apex Marketing. There is an argument to be made that he is the best ball-striker on the planet, and a much better argument that the best ball-strikers on the planet double as the most likely golfers to win major championships.

Woods also has partnerships in place with club sponsor TaylorMade, Japanese pharmaceutical company Kowa and Indian motorcycle brand, Hero. "Just the whole tournament has meant so much to me over the years".

"I had serious doubts after what transpired a few years ago".

"It's hard to really feel bad about how I played, just because I just witnessed history", Schauffele said.

"Luckily, I had the procedure on my back, which gave me a chance of having a normal life. The body's not the same as it was a long time ago, but I still have good hands".

But Nike, which has been a sponsor since 1996, has stuck by him. This recent big win puts the athlete at 15 career major titles, just three behind Jack Nicklaus. Several major sportsbooks took a beating on the victory, with one bettor heading to the 19th hole with a tidy profit of about $1.2 million. Fourteen years after his last Masters win, it represented the longest ever gap between victories at Augusta.

"You want to play against the best to ever play", Koepka said. "Just to have them there and have them see their Pops win, just like my Pops saw me win here, it's pretty special".

"It's nice to see his story, his comeback, and to be a witness in the first person", Molinari said.

After Woods' win, Koepka said, "I'm sure this won't be the last".

With his public persona tarnished by the revelation of his extra-marital affairs, Tiger's golfing career embarked on what seemed an inexorable decline as back injuries took their toll.

"After Friday, gamblers couldn't get enough", Bogdanovich said.

Woods won his first Masters in 1997. For the record, he also hugged caddie Joe LaCava; his children, Sam and Charlie; and his mother, Kultida, among many others. "No man in the game has inspired more opinion, and his story is well known".

Tiger Woods' stunning win at the 2019 Masters Championship is paying dividends for his longtime sponsor, Nike. At 43, Woods became the oldest champion since Nicklaus himself. He went two years without even playing a major.
