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

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

There will be no Masters green jacket ceremony on the Augusta National course at the conclusion of Round 4 on Sunday.

NFL players from around the league watched Woods' historic turnaround and showed the star golfer support on social media.

Only fellow American Nicklaus has won more Masters, with six.

Tiger Woods' first of 81 PGA Tour victories was at the 1996 Las Vegas Invitational, just five weeks after his famous "Hello, world" declaration upon turning pro.

The 43-year-old muscled his way through a tightly packed leaderboard to win by two shots at Augusta for his first major title in 11 years and first Masters win since 2005.

"I've never had an ace, ever, unfortunately", DeChambeau said. Woods' name was removed from the game after the 2014 edition. "And, you know, the next two majors are at Bethpage, where he's won [2002 U.S. Open], and Pebble Beach, where he's won [2000 U.S. Open]".

He ended last season by winning the Tour Championship and showed signs of a breakthrough at the majors by being a title contender at last year's British Open, where he led in the final round, and PGA Championship, where he finished runner-up. "I could barely walk". "I was really hoping it would go in".

"Luckily I had the procedure on my back, which gave me a chance at having a normal life".

Weather concerns have already played a huge role in how Sunday's final round is developing with tee times pushed up to start at 7:30 a.m. ET and players sent off in threesomes at split tees. It also ends a almost 11-year major tournament drought for Woods, who last captured one back in 2008 at the US Open.

At Carnoustie it was Woods who stumbled on the back nine while leading.
