Donald Trump Celebrates Golfing Buddy Tiger Woods' Unlikely Masters Victory

Let's dive in and see what we find.

Both Woods and LaCava have been through the mill together and the tough times helped form a strong bond.

FanDuel confirmed over $3 million in losses, with over $1 million a result of a promise to participants in a contest that all would get a refund if Woods won. With the final group still in the 15th fairway, there was a five-way tie for the lead.

Six players had a share of the lead at some point on the back.

Nicklaus, 23-times tennis grand slam victor Serena Williams, Super Bowl champion Tom Brady also applauded the victory on Twitter while swimmer Michael Phelps, the victor of a record 23 Olympic gold medals, was at Augusta National to cheer Woods on.

The bookmakers certainly think there's a chance; Woods has been positioned as favorite for the year's three remaining majors. Woods won the confidence he needed to re-engage Nicklaus.

"I really haven't thought about that yet", said Woods.

It rates among the best because Woods has meant so much to so many in a sport he ruled for so long.

But it was Sunday's victory at Augusta, topping one of the strongest ever major championship leaderboards, that truly completed Tiger's comeback.

Other US Sports stars were quick to join in on Twitter. Tiger Woods won his first major in 11 years, and yet all the suspense was wrapped up by the middle of the afternoon, thanks to a weather forecast that moved up the start of the round by a few hours, with threesomes going off the first and 10th tees.

They're all annoying nuisances now. 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. For the record, he also hugged caddie Joe LaCava; his children, Sam and Charlie; and his mother, Kultida, among many others.

The major is 43-year-old Woods' first since his 2008 US Open victory and his first at the Masters since 2005. Pebble Beach is in play.

Today's players gave Woods something at Augusta National that they may regret. Woods regularly played practice matches with them as he sought to ascertain whether his body would allow him to be competitive again.

"I had serious doubts (about my golf future) after what transpired a couple years ago", Woods said, referring to his back problems. "I could barely walk".

"It is probably one of the biggest wins I've ever had for sure", said Woods. Rickie Fowler, Koepka, Thomas, Bubba Watson, Zach Johnson, Trevor Immelman, Ian Poulter and Xander Schauffele greeted him as he entered scoring. There was respect, gratitude and graciousness in it. Was it the best sports moment we've seen in our lifetimes? This man just put your golf club in the center of the entire sporting world's spotlight in a way that its long history of racism, classism and sexism never did, and you're rewarding him with a sportcoat old enough to buy booze.
