One fan joyously replied to the video, "Tiger Woods FINALLY EMBRACING HIS SON AFTER A MASTERS WIN".

Woods has now gone even better, winning his fifth green jacket amid emotional scenes on Sunday at Augusta, as well as earning praise from as far and wide as golf-mad US President Donald Trump, tennis great Serena Williams, and National Football League legend Tom Brady.

Tiger Woods has sealed one of the greatest comebacks in sport with a momentous Masters victory at the Augusta National, capturing his first major in 11 years.

Woods one-stroke win from fellow Americans Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka will take him to number six in the world - he was as low as 1,199 in November 2017.

At 43, Woods is the oldest Masters champion since Jack Nicklaus, who won the 1986 Masters at 46.

"I was very lucky to be given another chance to do something that I love to do".

"I'm a little hoarse from yelling", said Woods, whose last Masters win came back in 2005.

Attorney general defends handling of Mueller’s Russian Federation report
Trump launched an attack on the team that produced the Mueller report as he accused them of "leaking" information to the press. Mulvaney said Democrats will never see Trump's tax returns, "nor should they".

They say the Masters starts on the second nine on Sunday, and this year didn't disappoint, especially with the arrival of the promised rain.

Those controversies, not to mention his being limited to just 24 tournament starts in four years from 2014, saw him written off by some observers and he told 18-time major victor Jack Nicklaus he "was done" at the Masters Champions Dinner in 2017.

"To have the opportunity to come back like this, you know it's probably one of the biggest wins I've ever had for sure". I really couldn't do much of anything.

'Maybe next time would have been better for me, but it was nice to be out with him, he played well, hit the right shots at the right time and he deserved to win.

Yes, he's a major champion again.

"I was just trying to plod my way along the golf course all day", said Woods. But the Italian self-destructed on the back side, dunking two balls in the water on the way to double-bogeys at the 12th and 15th holes. It was an fantastic buzz to follow what was going on and yet still focus on what I was trying to do out there.

Tony Finau was tied with Woods entering the final round and played in the last group with Woods and Francesco Molinari. His birdie putt on the 18th from just outside 10 feet never had a chance, and he had to settle for a 70.
