Nike releases emotional commercial celebrating Tiger Woods' Masters win

Tiger Woods in the hunt for the lead at the Masters after sinking six birdies on Day 3 at Augusta

Tiger Woods' family and peers gathered to watch Woods' fifth Masters victory on Sunday at Augusta National, a moment many thought was no longer possible.

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. With the win, Woods now sits only three major victories behind Jack Nicklaus for most all-time.

Eleven years since his last triumph at a major and 14 years since he had last donned the Green Jacket, Woods finished one shot ahead of Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele to secure a 15 major.

"It's overwhelming just because of what has transpired", Woods said. "Just kept, as I said, just kept plodding along".

He lost his health to four back surgeries that left him unable to get out of bed, much less swing a club, and he went two years without even playing a major.

However, that has opened the door to new partners such as Monster Energy - Woods' golf bag sponsor - which saw US$960,000 in exposure during his final round at Augusta, whilst his golf ball manufacturer Bridgestone netted US$134,000 in sponsor value. "Even the one on 12, I hit it exactly where I wanted to and the wind can kind of make you look stupid on that hole". "I am so happy for him and for the game of golf".

With the win, Tiger has answered one important question - he is capable of capturing more major titles.

The fans, in a state of euphoria, were still chanting Tiger Woods' name in the aftermath of his Masters victory Sunday when Zach Johnson, the 2007 Masters victor, looked around the grounds from behind the clubhouse and took it all in. "I really couldn't do much of anything", Woods afterwards in his news conference.

"Greatest comeback story in sports!" said three-time National Basketball Association champion Stephen Curry. He briefly led the Open at Carnoustie before finishing second to Koepka in the US PGA and winning the Tour Championship for his 80th PGA Tour title, just two behind the record of Sam Snead.

His win at the 2018 Tour Championship was his first in any PGA Tour event since 2013. "Jack & Tiger like each other".

We'll update with final Masters Final Round numbers as they come in.

"I did the same thing to my dad and now I'm the dad with my son doing the same thing", he reflected to CNN's Andy Scholes. "They definitely beat us today, and hopefully they'll come back". Fourteen years after his last Masters win, it represented the longest ever gap between victories at Augusta.

"I'm sure I will probably think about it going down the road".

One local industry observer, who requested anonymity for lack of authorization to discuss these numbers, said if the weather had not forced rescheduling, the average rating for Woods' victory likely would have been as high as 12.0, peaking with at least 20 percent of the market's TV homes.
