Legendary golfer Tiger Woods made an impressive comeback on Sunday, catching his fifth Master's degree. As he walked away from the green after the victory, the athlete celebrated in an exceptionally comforting way, giving a huge hug to his son Charlie Axel Woods.
Woods' victory in Augusta, Georgia, marks his first green jacket since 2005, four years before Charlie was born with his wife and model Elin Nordegren in 2009. The former couple also shares his daughter Sam Alexis Woods, born in 2007. His children, mother Kultida Woods and his girlfriend Erica Herman attended Sunday and received hugs after the victory, but it was the touching moment with Charlie that caught the attention of the world.
Video he captured Woods heading towards his son, who then ran to meet him and lifted him happily while they both smiled. "To have my kids there, the circle is completed, my dad was here at '97, and now I'm the dad with two kids there," said Woods, 43, after the round.
The sweet moment reminded many of the Father son Tiger's hug he shared with his own father, Earl Woods, after winning his first Masters in 1997 at age 21, the youngest champion in history. His father died in 2006 at 74 years old
Before Sunday, Woods had not earned a specialization in more than a decade, having last captured the US Open in 2008. The 11-year drought among Tiger's elders was linked to the longest drought forever. The comeback of the star, after the scandal and injuries vanished from his game, is being considered the best reappearance of his career in the history of golf.
Woods scored a score in the final round of 70 to finish with 13 under par. Now he has won 15 major titles in his career, only three behind the all-time leader, Jack Nicklaus.
