Tiger Woods accomplishes surprising first during Masters win

Tiger Woods has accomplished just about everything during his Hall of Fame golf career, but he managed to do something he had never done before en route to winning his 15th major championship on Sunday.

Woods entered the final round at the Masters at 11-under, which was two shots back of then-leader Francesco Molinari. While it may be difficult to believe, Tiger had never come from behind on the final day of a major to win. In his previous 14 victories, four of which came at the Masters, Woods had the lead heading into the final round and never looked back.

Like most winners at Augusta National, Tiger got some help from other players at the top of the leaderboard who made crucial mistakes. That said, it is still remarkable that Sunday was the only time in his career he came from behind to win. What a way to capture your fifth green jacket.
