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

On Sunday, Woods proved them all wrong, while simultaneously captivating America as he has many times before.

With five Masters titles, he is now just one victory away from tying the record for most Masters wins held by American Jack Nicklaus, who has six.

Augusta National moved the final round to Sunday morning due to storms expected to arrive in the afternoon, when leaders would typically be battling for the title. Koepka has three major wins, including the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in 2018.

Tiger Woods ended his long major tournament drought Sunday, when he took home the green jacket at the 2019 Masters at Augusta National.

Baltimore Ravens backup quarterback Robert Griffin III, who shares a similar story with career-threatening injuries, expressed his happiness about Woods' triumph and said to "never doubt a champion".

In his first 14 major victories, Woods either led or was tied for the lead heading into the final round.
