Tiger Woods: US Masters champ favourite to enjoy more major success

Francesco Molinari and Brooks Koepka

Five things you may have missed amid the history-making excitement of Tiger Woods' fifth Masters Tournament, 15th major, and 81st PGA TOUR victory.

Nike ($NKE) shares were up about 700 percent since Woods' last win at Augusta, back in April 2005.

Thomas acknowledged he had needed to be convinced Woods could win another major.

Woods was the game's most popular player during his prime, but he was out of the spotlight for a long period before breaking through at the Tour Championship last September for his first PGA Tour win since 2013.

Nike has likely had this commercial ready to send for the last several years, but it was worth the wait since it hits you right in the feels. "And will that open the door to getting Tiger back on top in terms of endorsement deals?" "Just kept, as I said, just kept plodding along".

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

"Nobody wants their record to be broken, but I certainly wouldn't want Tiger to be hurt and not able to do it", Nicklaus told Golf Channel.

The fans, in a state of euphoria, were still chanting Tiger Woods' name in the aftermath of his Masters victory Sunday when Zach Johnson, the 2007 Masters victor, looked around the grounds from behind the clubhouse and took it all in. This recent big win puts the athlete at 15 career major titles, just three behind Jack Nicklaus. Curry took to Twitter to say: "Greatest comeback story in sports!"

"But I did have my 30 seconds in the sun with the lead and it was a really cool feeling, and it just proves to my team and I that we can contend and that we can win on this property". Just the opposite of previous year when hardly anyone was a Patrick Reed fan when he won, it seemed EVERYONE was a Tiger fan on Sunday.

"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago", he said afterward.

As well as becoming the first Italian to win a major championship, Molinari won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, his first PGA Tour title in the Quicken Loans National - a tournament hosted by Woods - and he became the first European to compile a ideal 5-0 record in the Ryder Cup. For the record, he also hugged caddie Joe LaCava; his children, Sam and Charlie; and his mother, Kultida, among many others.

Congratulations, Tiger! To come back and win the Masters after all the highs and lows is a testament to excellence, grit, and determination.

Woods has left us in awe in victory before, but never like this, never in gaping wonder over what he has collectively overcome in body, mind and spirit. "They definitely beat us today, and hopefully they'll come back".

"I was trying to push myself, but I feel like I got a very full Masters experience here in my second year".

Watson said he noted how Woods talked before the final round about being confident with his putter.

"I'm sure I will probably think about it going down the road".
