Tiger Woods, the Masters' shattered dream

He first won The Masters of Golf in 1997 at the age of 21 years and 3 months. That success of Tiger Woods in Augusta (Georgia, USA) was compared to that of Artur Ashe at Wimbledon in 1975, as the first black players to establish himself in these different disciplines in the context of key events.

Then, in 2001-2002, the Californian in the temple of the green signed an encore of consecutive successes sanctioning the trio in Augusta. In 2005 "The Big Cat" led to 4 exploits in the competition before a 14-year long fast.

But it is in 2019, after so many extra green scandals, back operations, falls and climbs, that Woods signed one of the greatest achievements of his career. In the 83rd edition the US champion won the 15 / o Major which also earned him the presidential medal for freedom.

The Californian took advantage of the final collapse of Francesco Molinari whose dreams of glory ended up in the water on the "Amen Corner", where the Masters is decided. Tiger Woods this year, after a new back operation, dreamed of equaling Jack Nicklaus, record holder of the competition with 6 wins.

But a serious car accident will not allow him to be among the protagonists of the show. Before winning 15 major titles, Tiger Woods was the individual national champion while representing Stanford at the 1996 NCAA tournament.

He also won three straight U.S. Amateur titles, the last two of which came when he was enrolled at the school. Two weeks ago, the 15-time major champion announced he is back home and continuing his recovery. “Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery.

I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks”. On Saturday night, he made his second public comment following his accident. He congratulated Tsubasa Kajitani, who one the Augusta National Women’s Amateur in a playoff.

"Congrats to Tsubasa Kajitani on winning the @anwagolf with an amazing playoff finish. Enjoy the special moment, and good luck to all of the kids tomorrow in the @DriveChipPutt", Woods said.
