In an epic style, Tiger Woods reached the pinnacle of his return to the game by winning his fifth green jacket and 15th major championship yesterday in the 83rd edition of the Masters.

Staring at the abyss just two years ago when he was bedridden and thinking his career was over due to a painfully disorderly back, Woods was stoic and steady throughout the week at Augusta National Golf Club despite the roars echoing through the Georgia pines.

With a final-round 2-under-par 70 in his Sunday red mock turtleneck, Woods won on these hallowed grounds for the first time since 2005. It also marked his first triumph in a major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open.

Commenting on his grand win, Tiger said: “It’s come full circle. My dad was here in ’97 and now I’m the dad with two kids here,” Woods said.  About thirty minutes after his final putt, Woods said the monumental win had not sunk in yet. “You couldn’t have had more drama than what we had out there. Now I know why I’m balding,”
