"Every shot I saw him play was a smart shot and when you've got a guy who plays smart shots like that and plays them well, he should be your victor".

Aged 43, Woods became the second-oldest Masters victor, trailing only Jack Nicklaus who won 46 in 1986. Almost a decade ago, scandal and injuries derailed his career. A record that could be broken as the 43-year old still clearly has a few good years left - even though Woods is now the second-oldest player to win golf's most prestigious tournament.

More immediately, Woods can become the most prolific victor in PGA Tour history.

Williams had 12 Grand Slams at the time of that tweet. DraftKings actually goosed things again on Sunday, when Woods fell several shots back, raising his odds to 15-1.

What does that mean for one of the greatest golfers of all time? "It's great to see Tiger back".

Fellow sports star Michael Phelps did better than tweet - he attended.

President Donald Trump and Barack Obama were among those hailing Woods on social media after registering a thrilling and emotional Masters victory on Sunday. "One GOAT watching another GOAT", Golf.com tweeted.

Phil Mickelson, who lost to Woods, also tweeted about his opponent's unprecedented comeback. "Truly a special day that will go down in history".

President Donald Trump praised the win, tweeting: "Love people who are great under pressure".

"I can't thank my family, friends and fans enough for their support". "Having my family by my side today is something I will never forget". I was a little better at the PGA, but still I didn't win.

"This jacket sure is comfortable".
