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.

One of the few companies to stick with Woods over the last decade, Nike released a sentimental video about 43-year-old's unexpected win.

Woods, though, is listed at 8 1/2-1, according to the Action Network, meaning that if he goes back to back, sportsbooks will be set to take another bath.

President Donald Trump and Barack Obama were among those hailing Tiger Woods on social media after his 11-year major drought was ended by a thrilling and emotional Masters victory on Sunday.

"Congratulations, Tiger! To come back and win the Masters after all the highs and lows is a testament to excellence, grit, and determination", Obama tweeted.

"Sometimes it is your day, sometimes it isn't, but I'm really happy of the way I felt out there today", said Molinari.

Woods went from being the number one golfer in the world in May 2014 to be ranked 1,199 in December 2017 and was left nearly unable to tie his own shoelaces after undergoing three back surgeries. "And now I know why I'm balding", Woods said.

Probably no single venue in sports inspires as much blind devotion as Augusta National, and I can't wait for its defenders to come at me with talk about how its refusal to distribute new jackets is some storied tradition.

Woods fired a final-round two-under par 70 to finish on 13-under 275 for a one-shot victory to capture a $2.07 million (€1.82 million) top prize and the green jacket symbolizing Masters supremacy. As the now 15-times major champion began his journey back towards tournament golf, following a fourth back surgery, Florida's young professional golf contingent were a constant source of encouragement.

The bookmakers certainly think there's a chance; Woods has been positioned as favorite for the year's three remaining majors. "I saw this as something that potentially could happen".

But it was Sunday's victory at Augusta, topping one of the strongest ever major championship leaderboards, that truly completed Tiger's comeback. "Whether he admits it or not, I'm sure this one is one of the most important or biggest [wins]".

"You couldn't have had more drama than we all had out there. I feel like I got full Masters experience".

"To be able to do that against Rory [McIlroy] and Rosey [Justin Rose] there gave me a lot of confidence going into this year, and I said, you know, just keep building on it and let's try to get the mind and body peaking towards Augusta".

"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago", he said afterward.

With the win, Tiger has answered one important question - he is capable of capturing more major titles. "But not for you", said South African legend Player on Twitter. He is now three short of the record 18 majors won by Jack Nicklaus and is the second oldest Masters victor after Nicklaus.
