Tiger Woods became a five-time Masters champion on Sunday, more than a decade after winning his last major championship in 2008. Woods shared the emotional moment with his girlfriend Erica Herman, mom Kultilda Woods, and his two children Sam and Charlie.


“I’m a little hoarse from yelling,” Woods said afterwards. “… When I tapped the putt in, I don’t know what I did; I know I screamed. To have my kids there, it’s come full circle. My dad was there in ‘97 [when he won for the first time], and now I’m the dad.”

He continued, “It’s overwhelming, because of what has transpired. Last year I was lucky to be playing again. At the previous champions dinner I was really struggling. To now be the champion. Unreal for me to experience this. I couldn’t be more happy and excited. I’m at a loss for words.  I was close a couple of times [last year] and able to seal the deal today.”


Woods and his son shared a heart-warming embrace after the victory, similar to the moment that Tiger shared with his late father, Earl, after his 1997 Masters win.

“When the putt went in, I don’t know what I did, but I was just trying to find Charlie. … It’s unreal to experience this,” Woods said. “My Mom was here. She was here in 1997 as well, and she couldn’t be more excited.

“When I was there with my Dad, he shouldn’t have been there that year. He was recovering from a heart attack, from heart surgery. Now I’m there with Charlie. That embrace, it’s just special.”

Woods’ kids, 10-year-old Charlie and 11-year-old daughter Sam, are from his previous marriage to Elin Nordegren.
