After waiting 14 years, Woods won his 5th green jacket, the longest gap in Masters history. Instead of micromanaging his swing, Tiger allowed the rounds to come together. At 43, suddenly, he’s trusting the process of life.
An unspectacular approach. A more mature approach. The approach of a 43-year-old man who’s had 8 neck and back surgeries. The approach of a Champion.
Go figure, a lucky -13 broke Tiger’s drought at the Masters. The delayed gratification he experienced was one of the better moments in sports history. As he hugged Charlie, his son, a happy boy who’s living the childhood Tiger never experienced. It was hard to find a dry eye. It’s also a testament to the father Eldrick Woods has become.
