a great moment for the game of golf. I’m so impressed by @TigerWoods‘ incredible
performance, and I’m so happy for him to capture another Green Jacket. Truly a

“It’s overwhelming,” Woods told Jim Nantz after the big win.
“Because of what has transpired, last year I was just very lucky to be playing
again. The previous champions dinner, I was really struggling. I missed a
couple of years of not playing in this great tournament. Now being the
champion, 22 years between wins is a long time. It’s unreal for me to
experience this. My mom was here. She was here in 97 as well. I couldn’t be
more happy and more excited. I’m kind of at a loss for words, really.”
“I was as patient as I’ve been in a number of years out there,
especially the last three days. The
way I was plodding my way across the golf course, kept in control of my
emotions, my shots, my shot placement. To see that board, it was a who’s who
and it all flipped at 12.”
Woods finished at 14-under, and
collected career major No. 15 at his greatest course while putting an end to
the 11-year drought between major champoonships.
