Tiger Woods won his first major championship since 2008 in an epic form.

He won his fifth green jacket and 15th major championship on Sunday, April 14th in the 83rd edition of the Masters.

With his career considered almost over just two years ago due to a painful back disorder, the golfer started a gradual return, as he was consistent throughout the week at Augusta National Golf Club.

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.

Starting the day two shots behind leader Francesco Molinari, Woods finished at 13 under par and one shot ahead of Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka. When his final putt dropped on 18, Woods gave a fist pump with his right hand then lifted both arms overhead in joy in celebration.

“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,” he joked. “This stuff is hard.”

After sharing a hug with his caddie, Joe LaCava, Woods found his son, Charlie, who ran up and gave dad a big hug, followed by Tiger’s mom, Kultida, his daughter, Sam, and girlfriend, Erica Herman in celebration.
