Jack Nicklaus’ Message To Tiger Woods After His Masters Win

The 43-year old won The Masters on Sunday shooting a two-under 70 at Augusta National, winning the prestigious tournament for the first time since 2005.

With his victory at Augusta National, Tiger now has 15 major championships in his career.

It completes a fairytale return for the most dominant player of his generation - and arguably the best ever - after enduring "dark times" through injury since 2014. He is second among major wins to Jack Nicklaus, who had 18 in his career.

Woods emerged over the final few holes from a crowded leaderboard to win his first major in years.

Only fellow American Nicklaus has won more Masters, with six. The leaders - Italy's Francesco Molinari, at 13-under, has a 2-shot lead over Tony Finau and Tiger Woods - were scheduled to tee off on No. 1 at 9:20 a.m. ET.

According to the Action Network's Darren Rovell, DraftKings, already having taken 27 percent of its Masters wagers on Tiger, made a decision to tempt people into placing more big bets on the Big Cat. Another birdie on the short 16th ignited thunderous roars which reverberated around the towering pines as Woods marched off with a two-shot lead and a thousand-yard stare in scenes reminiscent of his heyday. And it was all sorts of emotional watching Woods celebrate his win with his family, which included a long embrace with his son Charlie.
