After winning The Masters earlier today for the 15th major of his career, Tiger Woods found himself in a familiar spot: Receiving a fifth green jacket.
Following his win on Sunday that included overcoming a two-stroke deficit to start the day, Woods was presented with his green jacket.
You could hear the excitement in his voice as he said, “Yeah buddy” while it was being put on.
After testing the fit, Woods happily added, “It fits.”
“It fits” 🐐

Tiger’s Masters win on Sunday gave him sole possession of second-place for the most titles in the tournament’s history. With one more he would tie the great Jack Nicklaus.
The major win ended an 11-year drought for Woods that dated back to the 2008 U.S. Open.
That lengthy drought was highlighted by multiple surgeries, legal troubles, highly-publicized domestic issues, and all-around poor play from the former No. 1 golfer in the world.
But with his win on Sunday, Tiger Woods is once again on top of the sports mountain and is back in the hunt for Nicklaus’ all-time majors record.
His next major opportunity will come next month in Long Island for the 2019 PGA Championship.
The world will be watching and waiting for more magic from Tiger.
