How Social Media Reacted To Tiger Woods' Masters Win

Tiger Woods (opens in new tab) collected his 15th Major title this weekend at The Masters (opens in new tab). His last victory in a Major championship was back at the US Open in 2008, the site of his famous come-back over Rocco Mediate. Staring down a stellar set of players at the top of the leaderboard, Tiger played a near-perfect last six holes to take a two-shot lead down the last hole. He bogeyed to win by one stroke and get within three of Jack Nicklaus' Major record of 18.
