Tiger Woods comes full circle with dad celebration at Masters

Tiger Woods son Charlie

Life has come full circle for Tiger Woods.

22 years ago, in 1997, Woods won the Masters for his first career major. He was just 21 at the time, had recently turned pro, and became the youngest Masters winner ever. Woods celebrated his first career major win by hugging his late father Earl, who died in 2006.

22 years later, in 2019, Woods overcame an 11-year major slump to win his 15th career major. He won at Augusta National once again for his fifth career Masters. This time, his father Earl was no longer around. Instead, Tiger celebrated with his son, Charlie, who never met Earl and had never witnessed his father win a major.

“I’m at a loss for words,” Tiger said of the situation. “My little boy Charlie … the embrace, it’s just special.”

Tiger is now 43 years old and still has time to try and tie Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 career majors. Jack has already offered his support to Tiger. For now, fans will enjoy Tiger finally being back on top.
