Woods was greeted by fellow players at the clubhouse after he'd put the finishing touches on his fifth career Masters win and first since 2005, his first major championship win since 2008. Woods also joins Nicklaus as the only player to have won the Masters in three different decades after he clinched his first as a 21-year-old in 1997.
Allied to his incredible physical skills, Woods has unshakable self-belief and an ability to completely shut out the distractions that come with the territory as one of the world's most famous sportsmen.
Jack Nicklaus, who holds the all-time record with 18 career major wins, said Tiger has him "shaking in (his) boots."
Woods' victory on Sunday was a major milestone, especially considering the athlete has had countless injuries throughout the years (he underwent four back surgeries in 2014, 2015 and 2017).
However, that has opened the door to new partners such as Monster Energy - Woods' golf bag sponsor - which saw US$960,000 in exposure during his final round at Augusta, whilst his golf ball manufacturer Bridgestone netted US$134,000 in sponsor value. It's fun. I mean, you watch him walk down after he won on 18 there, I mean, it's just a monsoon of people.

"I was just trying to plod my way along the golf course all day", said Woods.
The amount of exposure that Woods produced for Nike in the final round is almost double the $12 million that Apex estimates Nike gained previous year from Masters victor Patrick Reed.
Emerging from that logjam, Woods did more than win his 15 major championship. They were not real in that "I can remember where I was when it happened" sense. Sports commentators argued that his victory was the greatest comeback in the history of sports. "Whether he admits it or not, I'm sure this one is one of the most important or biggest [wins]". "Jack & Tiger like each other". This win gives Woods 81 PGA Tour titles, one shy of tying Sam Snead's record. When the coda came laced with heavy themes of redemption, aging and family, it was even better than many of us could have written. "I feel like I got full Masters experience".
"You want to play against the best to ever play", Koepka said.
The next two are at venues well suited to his game and where he has won - the PGA Championship at Bethpage and the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach where he triumphed by a massive 15 strokes. Crazy, I know. But that way you can keep one for him in your stodgy old-money golf club that didn't have a single African-American member until 1991 an only started giving memberships to women seven years ago, and another for him to take home and keep.
"I knew back three years ago", DeChambeau said after the final round, which he began with double-bogeys on 10 and 11. "I think Nike will stick with him until he stops playing golf, in some capacity".
