Sunday at the Masters
A Guest Artist Original
Sunday at the Masters 1/1 Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods has played in 22 Masters Tournaments and totaled five victories. The only golfer to have won more at Augusta National Golf Club is Jack Nicklaus, who has six green jackets.
Beginning in 1995 as an amateur and finishing with his fifth Masters win in 2019.
As the US Amateur champion, Woods plays his first Masters as an amateur in 1995 and finishes in a tie for 41st. His 5-over-par is enough to be the only amateur to make the cut and earn the honours of being the low-amateur.
In his first Masters as a professional, the 21-one-year-old rewrites the history books by shooting a record 18-under-par to finish some 12 shots clear of second.
The year 2000 belongs to Woods. He wins three Majors, but a second Green Jacket escapes him. He finishes 5th with a four-under-par.
Woods breaks more records as he becomes the first player to hold all four Majors at the same time, winning his fourth consecutive Major at the 2001 Masters. The American makes an 18-footer for birdie on the final hole to finish 16-under, his playing partner on Sunday, Phil Mickelson finishes three shots back.
There were only two players to have ever successfully defended a Masters title – Jack Nicklaus and Nick Faldo. In 2002, Woods makes it three.
A fourth Green Jacket looks to be out of reach for Woods in 2005 after a poor opening round leaves him seven shots off the lead. He makes 16 birdies across the next two rounds to throw his name back into contention. It’s the year of the famous chip on 16, but Chris DiMarco nearly wins with a lipped out chip on the final hole as Woods finishes bogey-bogey. The world number one holds his nerve to win the play-off hole.
Then a year later, Tiger managed to secure his fifth Masters Green Jacket as he saw off the challenges of Francesco Molinari, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson.
14 years after his fourth Green Jacket, Woods shocked the world in producing one of the very best comebacks in the history of the game.
