Tiger Woods' win at the Masters is being praised as the greatest comeback in sports.
It had been ten years since Woods' last major. After a marital scandal, numerous injuries and surgeries, a DUI arrest and more, Woods' climb back to the top of golf has been long and difficult.

US President Donald Trump tweeted his congratulations, too.
When Woods walked back to the clubhouse after winning the tournament, he also was greeted by a long line of his competitors who were there to congratulate him, including Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Xander Schauffele, Brook Koepka, and more.
