Steph Curry Hit With 3-1 Lead Jokes After Congratulating Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods celebrates after sinking his putt on the 18th green to win during the final round of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday.

It was the first time Woods won a major when trailing going into the final round, and he needed some help from Francesco Molinari, the 54-hole leader who still was up two shots heading into the heart of Amen Corner.

Last season, Woods won $1.62 million just for his victory at the season-ending Tour Championship. Prior to Sunday, Woods hadn't won a major championship since his victory at the US open in 2008.

Nationally, CBS's overnight Masters ratings in the nation's largest markets averaged a 7.7 household rating for Woods' first victory in a major in 11 years and first triumph at Augusta National since 2005.

This is a breaking news story.

Woods has battled back issues in the past, but Watson said Woods can continue to be successful if he is feeling well.

It completes a fairytale comeback to the pinnacle of golf for Woods, whose career imploded after a 2009 sex scandal before unraveling amid injuries and personal problems.

"I don't know if he's anxious or not", Woods said when asked whether Nicklaus should be concerned at being caught.

"I was as patient as I've been in a number of years out there", Woods said.

Such a move would have paralyzed the USA auto industry as virtually every automaker sources some vehicle components from Mexico. The action is part of the states' lawsuit challenging Trump's emergency declaration to fund a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border.

He admits he struggled with everyday tasks such as getting out of bed, driving and taking his kids to school, and is widely reported to have confided at the pre-Masters Champions Dinner a couple of years ago: "I'm done".

So much appeal of that red shirt beneath a green jacket involved looking back at all Woods had to overcome to reach that moment - a Masters champion once again - that so many thought would never happen.

Like countless other athletes, the New York Giants star smashed the retweet button to express his amazement and respect for Woods as the final round unfolded on Sunday afternoon.

By contrast, there has only ever been one hole-in-one at the fourth, by Jeff Sluman in 1992. "I could barely walk".

President Donald Trump, who has played with Woods at his Florida course, had two tweets of congratulations. I couldn't sit. Couldn't lay down.

Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas, neighbors in south Florida who often play with Woods, expressed a mixture of excitement and trepidation.

"But I did have my 30 seconds in the sun with the lead and it was a really cool feeling, and it just proves to my team and I that we can contend and that we can win on this property".

"Luckily, I had the procedure on my back, which gave me a chance of having a normal life".

Not trying to overpower Augusta, Tiger demonstrated an array of shots that very few players have in their bag. "And I felt like I got to a position today that's felt better than it's been, tee to green, and even on the greens, in quite a while".
