Famous American golfer Tiger Woods won the US Masters 2019 tournament, which took place in Augusta, USA. This is his first victory in the tournament in 14 years.
In 1996, Woods just started his golf career, but Nike already saw a prospect in the guy and became his sponsor. And she was fantastically right. Tiger became the leader of the world rankings in just a year and remained so for more than ten years! Golf is considered one of the most respectable sports in the world, which is why the American quickly became a wealthy superstar. Magazines, advertising, filming – it was simply impossible to hide from popularity.
The last time he won was in 2005. In total, the golfer has won the Masters 5 times – in 1997, in 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019. In 2017, Woods was only 1199th in the world rankings. In the last few seasons, the athlete has performed very little in competitions due to numerous injuries and mental health problems.
Now 43-year-old Woods is in 12th place in the ranking of the Professional Golfers Association (PGA). The US Masters is one of the four major golf tournaments of the season.
