Tiger Woods 2019 comeback: Nike shares rise after Woods' Masters win

Tiger Woods 2019 comeback: Nike shares rise after Woods' Masters win

That's because the 43-year-old's triumph at the Augusta National earned them a whopping $1.2 million (£916,000). With the win, Woods now sits only three major victories behind Jack Nicklaus for most all-time.

Tiger Woods blazing to victory in his Sunday red at the Masters, a scene once so familiar, was never more stunning.

Nike has likely had this commercial ready to send for the last several years, but it was worth the wait since it hits you right in the feels.

"Congratulations, Tiger! To come back and win the Masters after all the highs and lows is a testament to excellence, grit, and determination", Obama tweeted.

It is not hyperbole to say that the rest of this year's majors run through the Cat.

Written off as too old and too beaten up from four back surgeries and multiple knee operations, Woods underwent a back fusion procedure in 2017 and slowly returned to form. It was only a year and a half ago that he said he couldn't get off the couch to watch his kids play soccer and wasn't sure he would ever be able to walk normally again, much less play golf. "Even the one on 12, I hit it exactly where I wanted to and the wind can kind of make you look stupid on that hole".

Like him or not, it's also pretty special to have Tiger Woods back on top of the golf world again.

CBS's 2018 Masters coverage, which stretched late into Sunday afternoon, delivered an 8.7/18 share as Patrick Reed outdueled Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth for the green jacket.

In winning his 15th major championship, 11 years after securing his 14th, Woods completed arguably the greatest comeback in any sport, not just in golf.

Yet while Americans love a comeback, some experts question whether hoisting another Masters trophy will lead to more endorsement deals for Woods. "I felt in control of my long game and it really paid off".

With his victory Sunday, Woods completely changed the narrative for all the stars who made names for themselves while Woods battled challenges that threatened to end his career and mar his legacy. I only hoped my win, and how I won, might put a dent in the way people perceived black people.

They're in the way of Tiger challenging Jack, potentially the biggest and most important story in the history of the game.

"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago", he said afterward.

"Congrats Tiger! What a performance", the New England Patriots' six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady said.

"Running the numbers on how long it'll take me to get to 15".

We'll update with final Masters Final Round numbers as they come in.

Tiger Woods won his first major in 11 years on Sunday, and he was a picture of joy as he punched the air and roared with delight. "I think Nike will stick with him until he stops playing golf, in some capacity. But not for you", said South African legend Player on Twitter.
