Masters 2019: Presidents Donald Trump, Barack Obama among stars to congratulate Tiger Woods on win

Tiger Woods did it. He climbed back to the top of the mountain, completing what is arguably the greatest comeback story in the history of sports on Sunday at Augusta National. With a final-round 70, Woods won the 15th major championship of his career, as well as his fifth green jacket. He's now one green jacket shy of Jack Nicklaus' record total of six, and three majors shy of Nicklaus' all-time major record of 18. To say the sports world thought this was impossible not that long ago is the understatement of the century.
