'Greatest comeback story in sport!' Stars pay tribute to Tiger Woods

Francesco Molinari and Brooks Koepka

"I am so happy for him and for the game of golf", read a text to CBS from Jack Nicklaus, whose 18 career majors and six Masters titles Woods (with 15 and five) sits just behind.

Paired together in the final round of last year's British Open, won by the Italian at Carnoustie, Molinari and Woods found themselves in the last group again battling for a major title. Woods first major triumph since the 2008 U.S. Open, and first Masters victory since 2005, drew plaudits from across all corners of the world, but the ones from his peers were among the most prominent.

However, Woods won't get the honor of being part of the iconic green jacket ceremony, which Augusta National cancelled Sunday morning due to concerns over weather.

Woods then drove the green in two at the par-5 15 and tapped in for birdie to seize the lead alone at 13-under par then sank a four-foot birdie putt at the par-3 16 to stretch his advantage to two shots with two holes remaining. After his win, they were filmed hugging him.

Tiger Woods, with his Masters victory on Sunday, added the longevity label to a career that has changed the face of golf both on and off the course.

Woods held off Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele, who each finished at -12.

NFL players from around the league watched Woods' historic turnaround and showed the star golfer support on social media. Due to inclement weather expected in the afternoon, the iconic post-round celebration of the Masters victor has been nixed in part because officials want to expedite gate closures.
