It was an image for the ages - the completion of a cycle that many feared would never reach its natural end.
Woods himself appears introspective.
"Running the numbers on how long it'll take me to get to 15".
"My mom was here, she was here in '97 as well". "At that point, I'll hopefully have a few under my own belt".
That's the highest overnight rating for a morning golf telecast since metered ratings were introduced 34 years ago, the network said.
Midway through Woods' fourth round, it was a dream that looked like coming up short. I didn't do it at the Open Championship.
The Masters, which has not had a Monday conclusion since 1983, made a decision to cancel its green jacket ceremony at the 18th green in order to hurry spectators to the exits faster. A path opened up and the atmosphere on the famous old course changed as Augusta's patrons began not just to hope, but to believe. Woods won the confidence he needed to re-engage Nicklaus. He became the first $2 million man ($2,070,000 for the winner) in Masters history.
Fortunately the American saw it out and won his 15th major, 11 years after his 14th, and his fifth win at the Masters.
His battle with Molinari at Carnoustie had given him that belief.
His win at the 2018 Tour Championship was his first in any PGA Tour event since 2013.

Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Targaryen is also excited about the premiere of the eighth and the final season of Game of Thrones . The only way to watch every new episode of Game of Thrones is with an HBO subscription .
"I don't know if he's anxious or not". When it comes to Tiger Woods' insane 2019 Masters win on Sunday, that is the question in the golf world right now.
"Now being in the mix and winning a championship are two totally different things". He just let everyone back in the tournament. He's also three majors behind Nicklaus' record of 18.
"Watching the green jacket presentation in Butler cabin and realizing that nobody likes Patrick Reed", said another one.
"Luckily I've had the procedure [back surgery] where that's no longer the case and I can do this again".
"It's great to see Tiger back", said Nick Bogdanovich, director of trading at William Hill U.S. But spinal fusion surgery on April 19, 2017, gave him a new lease on life, and golf.
"I knew back three years ago", DeChambeau said.
He lost his health to four back surgeries that left him unable to get out of bed, much less swing a club, and he went two years without even playing a major.
West Palm Beach, Fla.
Woods' victory earned the bettor $1.19 million, more than the three PGA Tour players who tied for second behind Woods.
To say Woods is a popular champion is putting it lightly. The 14 years between Masters' victories was a record, surpassing the 11-year span between two of Nicklaus' wins. It's one of the hardest I've ever had to win.
That mixture of resignation and admiration was echoed by an executive at Westgate's Las Vegas sportsbook, Jay Kornegay, who told USA Today: "Despite our loss, I was rooting for Tiger".
