Tiger Woods is back in the winner's circle after a stunning come-from-behind victory at the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia on Sunday. Woods won his 5th Green Jacket since 2005, and his first major tournament since 2008.

Photo

Tiger, 43, was awarded the Green Jacket by Masters champion Patrick Reed during the Green Jacket Ceremony after winning the Masters. Tiger was not the favorite to win heading into the 2019 Masters. He'd never won a tournament without having at least a share in the lead going into the final round.

Photo

His life took a downward spiral after his last major win at the 2008 U.S. Open. His wife divorced him after she found out he'd cheated on her with multiple women on the road. He was arrested for a DUI, and he admitted he had an addiction to prescription pain killers after undergoing knee surgery and four back surgeries.

In November 2009, the National Enquirer published a story claiming that Woods had had an extramarital affair with a New York City nightclub manager. Then, two days later, around 2:30 a.m. on November 27, Tiger was behind the wheel of his Cadillac Escalade SUV when he collided with a fire hydrant, a tree, and some hedges near his home. He took sole responsibility for the accident, but it was later revealed that he was fleeing from his furious wife, Elin Nordegren, who smashed out one of his SUV windows with a golf club. They divorced in 2010.

But Tiger put all of that behind him on Sunday on the 18th green. Tiger celebrated his 15th major tournament win with Rob McNamara, Vice President of his TGR Ventures; his 10-year-old son Charlie Axel Woods (red shirt), his 12-year-old daughter Sam Alexis Woods (black cap), mother Kutilda Woods, pictured left, and his girlfriend, Erica Herman (not pictured).

Afterwards, Tiger said he was determined to win for his kids, Sam and Charlie, after mistakes cost him the win at the British Open last year.

"They were there at the British Open last year when I had the lead on the back nine, and I made a few mistakes, cost myself a chance to win the Open title," Tiger told reporters. "I wasn't going to let that happen to them twice, and so for them to see what it's like to have their dad win a major championship, I hope that's something they will never forget.”

After his stunning win, Tiger and his son Charlie embraced just as he hugged his own father, Earl Woods, after winning his first Masters in 1997. Earl Woods died in May 2006 at age 74.

Photo

When Tiger won his 4th Masters in 2005, Earl was in a nearby hotel room, too sick to attend the tournament.

"My dad shouldn't have come in '97. I mean, he had heart complications, and wasn't supposed to fly, but he flew and came. My dad's no longer here, but my mom's here, 22 years later, and I happen to win the tournament.

Tiger is only the 2nd golfer to win 5 Masters and 15 major titles. He trails only golf legend Jack Nicklaus in both categories.

  • Pamela

    You know, there are two famous, very accomplished "black" athletes that I have never heard them weigh in on issues that affect Black folk; Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan. Anyway, congrats Tiger.

  • elroy

    ....So, Tiger is black?

  • SouthsideServesHerWell

    He don’t acknowledge black ppl issues ever. He has never been seen with a black woman. I heard he don’t want to even be called black, even though society view him as being black. ?????Anyhoo, I’m not a hater congrats!

  • Pamela

    Self hate is real. Sad.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Hahaaa, Tiger about to run through 8 bad ones tonight as soon as he drops off the kids.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I believe that Tiger made it clear early in his career that he is not a black athlete.

  • Rayne

    Damn he done shedded all of his fur.?

  • Rayne

    Pam he calls himself a caublanasian...or so he thinks. With His bald headed ass

  • what?why

    What a comeback - great!

  • Alextra Ballard

    He really looks like his dad now

    Oh GREAT!!!!!! They finally gave him his balls back after embarrassing that poor white woman.

    Tiegah teefs are huge

    Out of all the 20-11 wimmen he cheated during his scandal wnot nary one was black

  • Blak

    He's not black he's biracial and no one has to chime in on sociopolitical issues if they don't want to

  • R in NYC

    Congrats Tiger!

  • Allihave2say

    Tiger set that white woman up proper. No one batted an eyeleash or lodged a complaint about her getting half a billion dollars in the divorce + child support. No protests have been staged against her keeping and using his last name after the divorce. No one said a thing when Elin bought a house for multiples of millions just to tear it down and spend Tigers money.

    Meanwhile the black woman married to the mulatto cheating tv actor is attacked every single day for being "bitter" "hateful" "greedy" and "she fits the angry black woman profile".

    I don't care about this caublasian's win or loses as he cares not about one drop of us.

  • SayWhatNow?

    Great win Mr Woods! I wish my house was closer to the Master's so I could rent it out. They pay 2000 or more per room and if you have amenities you could get more.

  • Allihave2say

    I just wrote the same things. Tiger is in full allegiance to white folks. Michale Jordan never shed a tear for the loss of lives by hungry, defeated and impoverished youths who wanted to "be like Mike" and innocently believed that wearing his tennis shoes would elevate their lives. Rumor had it that his father was murdered because he refused to throw a game to get the dad out of a gambling debt.

  • Allihave2say

    I can't upvote you because of the congrats.

  • SayWhatNow?

    And best believe they are lined up! I made the mistake of going by Dainel Field on my lunch break last week and they were camped out watching jets land lol. The freaks come out during Masters and alot of dirty old men from out of town.

    He must have a very small peen to only deal with white women.

    Love the sistas to death but y’all hard on a small wanker man lol

  • Zeta Aggie

    Jordan is actually Super philanthropic he just doesn’t brag about it.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I guess I'm the only one that isn't celebrating this. ?????

    I just don't care about him.

  • brooklyn23

    How you're perceived and what you happen to be are two different things. I'm so politically incorrect and find it foolish to address someone as a color. Anyway tired of the same no conversation of what's someone's ethnic background or color is. There's way more factors in life that hold more weight to focus and be concerned about

  • brooklyn23

    Sounds right. Ninga is a athlete. No less no more

  • Ryan

    This is a great day for the caublasian community.

  • the guest

    Good for Tiger.

    Perfect note to retire and coach his kids full time.

    Just like his dad did for him.

    Continue the legacy.

    Even though Tiger doesn't enthusiastically embrace the Black dot of his DNA, I hope he at least teaches his children not to totally ignore their African heritage. Money can't protect you from everything in this world. They need to know this.

    Let his car break down on the South side of Chicago. He'll quickly be enlightened on what color he is.

    Lol

  • Shamwow

    Seriously. I don’t understand why men at his stage of hair loss keep their hair, when they can clearly see what they would look like bald.

  • Nik

    I was thinking the same thing. Looking just like Earl.

  • JesusSidePeace

    Exactly!

  • Eileen

    are you kidding me if he doesn't acknowledge the big black lips nose and nappy hair "dot" why would he have his half white, black, indian, asian kids embrace the black dot?

  • Vonn

    Leave balding tiger, hidden hair follicles alone. ??

  • ALLMINE?

    He can be happy about both sides..Asian and black..if my kid was half he has the right to say he's half. Some black folks outside of America are 90% black and don't claim it.

  • ALLMINE?

    They may not feel an alliance with black folks. Especially when all we do is promote ignorance as black culture. Some folks just not beat for us.

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    Smh

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    I feel bad for him

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    But you clicked

  • chan chan

    I don’t he has more money than us put together. He has the type of money he can pay not pray but pay his problems away.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I was thinking the same thing. Let the cablinasians cheer for him.

  • Mind Yo Business

    Tiger was fighting to get back in the good graces of white folks.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Tiger has never identified himself as black. I don't know why anybody today still considers him a "black" athlete.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So true. And it always makes me SMH I see black folk "claiming" him as black, when he doesn't claim us.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well they were the ones that denounced him. Some black folks still give zero fvcks about tiegah.

    Tiger Woods presence in golf has made a difference to make golf accessible to brown and black children. He donates heavily to scholarships and accessibility programming.

    He is indeed mixed race and can identify as he chooses. That’s his right. Nevertheless, his presence still has made a difference for kids of color in golf.

  • Meme

    I must say he has made a good comeback i remember when he was at his lowest ebb, with his front teeth missing and walking the invisible line after being pulled over for drug driving

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Like myself ???? zero fawks

    That's on him..I don't care

  • oshh16

    Like me, I had to tell my dad again yesterday I can't stand the dude but my dad and some of uncles still root for him, go figure.

  • Coco17

    I was thinking the same thing...lol

  • oshh16

    Precisely. Please do not group him in with Casablanca.

  • the guest

    Tiger Wood's children will never experience life at all on the spectrum of the black experience. The father's level and their mother's level of money shields them in addition to their not looking black nor having black socialization or association.

  • currvalicious

    Ooh Chile, the older he gets the more dominant his Asian genes become. I'm not a fan, however I'm happy for him. He's been through a lot. Nothing like a good comeback story. Would love to see him surpass Jack Nicklaus' record (18)....

  • Yoni7
  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Good for him

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Life comes at you. He may be shielded by face recognition. His kids will not be. They look Black to me.

  • PhillyFacts

    When you’re use to the best, why settle for less?....?????

  • ClaireHuxtable

    He most certainly can...and Should be happy about All that he is. I just don't see Tiger visiting the Black side of who he is.

    It would be nice to see more Black advocates who have an international platform.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    ? ? I have never heard it explained that way before...good job!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    A good parent prepares their child for issues in life that they will face. Money can't isolate them from everything. They're still Black in a racist world.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    He can take a long walk off a short pier. He does not identify with African Americans. Once he made up that stupid ass name for his ethnicity. I was done with him permanently. Nothing wrong with embracing all parts of you, but he went OUT OF HIS WAY to not identify with being black. So...I give zero fffff's

  • hottlanta

    I couldnt understand a word he was mumbling at his news conference.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I felt the same way. Dude calling himself "cablinasian". SMH.
    I don't have a problem with people identifying as biracial or multiracial per se, but it just came across to me like he was trying to NOT be identified as black. Just rubbed me the wrong way as soon as he said it.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    He’s half Asian, his mom is Asian and doesn’t identify as Asian either.

  • Tiff J

    Elin on the phone with her attorney right now asking to get her an increase in child support. LOL

  • Tiff J

    If he was in touch with his black side he would know about Bigen. LOL He need a black barber to hook him up.

  • Miss Thang

    Lol

  • Miss Thang

    He happy as hell in that picture ? I’ve never seen him so happy he showing all his byke teeth ??

  • Alextra Ballard

  • wonderwoman

    Tiger is not aging well. I guess that’s the Asian in him, because we know black don’t crack(lol).

  • Lady_Elle

    Happy for him...
    Perhaps his Caublasian peeps are happier! :-)

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I get how offensive his remarks were. But, Tiger’s impact for young black golfers was exponential!

    We don’t know how his mom and dad raised him to view himself or what made his skewed or distorted worldview because he IS a Black man!

    I read Charles Barkley’s book, years ago with stories from various Black men, and Tiger wrote he was tied to a tree by white kids on his first day of school at 5 or 6 years old, traumatized.

    That book made me better understand why many Black men deny their race or marry outside their race, disproportionately, men like Barkley, too!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I was happy for Tiger, it was inspirational because didn’t give up with countless years of losses, injuries, people doubting if he would ever make it back!

    Well, he did it! Big Congrats!

    Not mad because of how he racially identifies, who he dates or married! I try to focus on the ones who do, like Lebron James, Barack Obama, Denzel Washington, Edris Elba, and many others!

    His career and impact on the sport of golf has been monumental and impactful to Black people, Asians, and America!

  • TheOwley

    A very talented man. I'm glad he got on the road to recovery and came out perfect on the other end. He single handily made golf watchable again.

  • Allihave2say

    Great for that. Doesn't change the fact that he didn't speak against the senseless murders as a result of kids buying shoes in hopes of being like him and overcoming poverty. At the beginning and the end he looked out for himself, Nike and their money earned into the millions.

  • Allihave2say

    Cause we'e all messy and nosey!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Lawwwd he 43 and look 83. He looks horrible.

    LOLLLL

    Lmao. So true

  • Karen Brady

    Not the only one bew. Not the only one.

  • dru and neil

    For a “black” man, yeah, you’re right.

  • dru and neil

    Well Asians have been known to age gracefully too, I think it’s all his prior drug and alcohol abuse running him into the ground. Remember how baked and roasted poor Luke Perry looked when he died last month. People need to chill with the liquor and cigarettes too before they look double their age.

  • dru and neil

    Don’t forget getting beat up by his wife for being a sleazeball. I wouldn’t have thought Elin had it in her.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Maybe Wendy should have a talk with her.

  • Yup, I said it

    This is a coon ive if ever seen one. He was flaunting his gf around. She used to be a waitress at his resturant. His ex wife was the nanny to some other golfer he was playing against. He has no self esteem to marry your opponets domestic servant. You know all the other golfer laugh at him. Yeah hes is winner but he takes every opportunity he can to show people how self loathing he is.

  • Jethro

    Yeahhh Boyeee!!!

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    Tiger Woods y'all !

  • dru and neil

    Yes!

  • JENNYJONES1

  • JENNYJONES1

    DID ANYONE SEE HOW THE GF PUSHED THE DAUGHTER OUT OF THE WAY TO GET UNDER TIGER FOR THE CAMERA? HE WAS WALKING WITH HIS SON AND WENT FOR THE DAUGHTER BUT OLE GIRL SLIDE IN AND GOT UNDER HIS ARM WHEN IT WAS CLEAR HE WAS GOING FOR HIS DAUGHTER. SMH!!! THE GF IS A GROUPIE AND CAMERA OPPORTUNIST........JENNY JONES!!!

    Who Cares!!

  • yvette46

    So. if he was tied to a tree by white folk shouldn't he be traumatized by white people but yet both these Coons gravitate towards them.. Some negros use ever excuse to be with whitey..

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Nope, racism CAN make people dislike themselves or their own race or culture! I recently watched “A Soldier’s Story, still relevant!

    SOME Blacks folks just love white people or Latinos/Hispanics, rich or poor more than themselves, and from my firsthand experience they usually get bitten, ripped, or trashed at some point, but it doesn’t end the preoccupation!
