Tiger Woods’ success at Augusta was the talk of Twitter, with both Serena Williams and Jack Nicklaus posting about the Masters champion.
Serena Williams revealed she was moved to tears while Jack Nicklaus sent his congratulations after Tiger Woods secured his 15th major at the Masters.
Woods carded a final round of 70 to win by one shot on a dramatic final day at Augusta, clinching a fifth green jacket but his first since 2005.
The 43-year-old has endured injury issues in recent years, raising doubts over his future in the game, but he completed a remarkable comeback on Sunday, much to the delight of those at the venue and millions watching on at home.
Tennis star Williams – who has returned to the court after giving birth to her first child in September 2017 – was quick to send out a tweet congratulating her fellow American, admitting she was inspired by Woods’ success.
“I am literally in tears watching Tiger Woods – this is Greatness like no other,” she wrote on social media.
“Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today? Wow. Congrats a million times! I am so inspired thank you buddy.”
