Tiger Woods turned his biggest rivals into wide-eyed fans

Sunday's losses, though bad for many, likely won't come close to offsetting the profits amassed during Woods's down years. Couldn't sleep. Couldn't walk.

Tiger Woods won the lion's share of his 15 majors before the internet grew into what it is today: An unrelenting content churn that feeds and thrives on giving both immediate perspective and succumbing to recency bias.

"I had serious doubts (about my golf future) after what transpired a couple years ago", Woods said, referring to his back problems. They were not real in that "I can remember where I was when it happened" sense.

"Maybe the most interesting question involving the return of Woods is this: Who will become the first major brand to take a risk on him?"

"To have my kids there - it's come full circle".

A jump in Nike's stock price during the 2019 Masters tournament and after Tiger Woods' win has added $2 billion to the company's value.

"Now to be the champion - 22 years between wins is a long time - it's unreal for me to experience this. I kind of liked it".

Racing to finish before an oncoming thunderstorm, players created their own electric atmosphere, spectators roaring repeatedly for sensational shotmaking on one of golf's iconic stages.

Woods was helped into the green jacket by last year's victor Patrick Reed.

Disney announces price and date of new streaming service
In the latter category are Loki , Falcon & Winter Soldier, and WandaVision , which will bring back actors from the movies. In the first year, Disney + aims to offer up 7,500 television episodes and 500 films from the Disney library.

Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele all received $858,667 for finishing right behind Woods in the standings.

"I am literally in tears watching @TigerWoods this is Greatness like no other", tweeted 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion Serena Williams. "I'm so happy for him and for the game of golf this is so fantastic".

The road to this Masters victory started in September, just two hours up the road, when Woods won the Tour Championship in Atlanta for his first victory since 2013. "I think Nike will stick with him until he stops playing golf, in some capacity".

"I didn't know, really, that this was a lot to bet on golf", he said. "I didn't know what was happening".

Found asleep at the wheel of his auto at the side of a road in Palm Beach, Florida, pictures and dashcam video of a confused and disoriented Woods were flashed around the world.

Woods claimed a birdie on the third to go within a shot of Francesco Molinari (on -13) but his putter ran cold on the next two holes.

He ended last season by winning the Tour Championship and showed signs of a breakthrough at the majors by being a title contender at last year's British Open, where he led in the final round, and PGA Championship, where he finished runner-up. Woods followed with a tee shot on the par-3 16th that rode down the slope next to the cup and settled two feet away for his final birdie.

'Next year it won't be a course where I have never played well before, I'll have a few good rounds under my belt. I kept control of my emotions, shots, placement - it was an wonderful buzz out there.
