The tailors that provide the Augusta National Country Club with the coveted green jacket that’s presented to the winner of the Masters can breathe a sigh of relief.
Tiger Woods claimed his fifth Masters title this evening after a remarkable day of golf in the year’s first major.
After an unprecedented outpouring of emotion on the 18th green as he won his first major in 11 years, he headed to the Butler Cabin for presentation ceremony.
As is tradition, last year’s champion, Patrick Reed, put the jacket on Ryder Cup team-mate Woods and uttered “Yea buddy!” as he did so.
Then, as Woods got himself acquainted with the jacket, he adjusted himself and, much to the delight of tournament organisers, said; “It fits!”
Woods finished top of the pile on Sunday at The Masters after beginning the day two shots behind Italian Francesco Molinari.
The 2018 Open Champion saw his round collapse on the 12th hole as he knocked it in the water and made double bogey.
Woods sensed an opening and played lights out golf over the next five holes, making three birdies to win by a shot from Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka.
It capped one of the most incredible sporting comebacks of all time.
Since his last major victory in 2008, Woods career has been blighted by a persistent back injury and multiple surgeries.
Many wondered if he’d ever swing a club again, let alone win another major.
But he has now moved to within three of golf legend Jack Nicklaus’ record major haul of 18 victories.
