Empire State Building Lit Up Green To Honour Tiger Victory
It seems like the entirety of the United States has been celebrating Tiger Woods' Masters victory at Augusta National last weekend.
The Empire State Building, one of the most famous landmarks in the US and in New York City, was bathed in green light to honour the 43-year-old's 15th Major title.
His last win in a Major title came roughly 11 years ago in that famous Torrey Pines US Open in 2008. Thanks to his various personal issues on and off the course, and the degradation of his physical abilities, not many people gave Woods much of a chance to win a Major again.
At one point during the final day a whole smattering of players could have emerged victorious but Tiger outlasted them all.
However despite the victory is does not appear that Tiger will go on the New York Media Tour which has often been done by the Masters winner after the tournament.
The winners usually travel to participate in several of the popular morning shows on US television as well as go up the Empire State and visit the New York Stock Exchange.
