Woods rises in rankings after memorable Masters win

Tiger Woods' historic comeback victory Sunday at the The Masters Tournament shows the enduring star - and earning - power of a player once dropped by many sponsors because of his problems on and off the golf course.
Not since 2008 had Woods finished at the top of a major leaderboard but that changed at Augusta, where the 43-year-old carded a two-under-par to reign supreme.
Woods had gone almost 11 years since he won his last major, 14 years since that green jacket was slipped over his Sunday red shirt.
Allied to his incredible physical skills, Woods has unshakable self-belief and an ability to completely shut out the distractions that come with the territory as one of the world's most famous sportsmen.
Nike has likely had this commercial ready to send for the last several years, but it was worth the wait since it hits you right in the feels.
But after seeing a specialist in England, Woods underwent fusion surgery, his fourth back procedure, in the US.
"I thought he had a chance to be competitive", Westgate's Jay Sherman said of Woods, "but I'm a little surprised by him winning, especially with the competition he faced. Even the one on 12, I hit it exactly where I wanted to and the wind can kind of make you look stupid on that hole". "I see that Tiger Woods has 14 and I've always wanted to catch him!"
"My last three major championships have been pretty good", said Woods on Sunday.
Yet while Americans love a comeback, some experts question whether hoisting another Masters trophy will lead to more endorsement deals for Woods. I really couldn't so much of anything.
"Greatest comeback story in sports!" said three-time National Basketball Association champion Stephen Curry.
His win at the 2018 Tour Championship was his first in any PGA Tour event since 2013.
"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple years ago", said Woods.
"We were a small loser to Tiger before the start but were able to fade it over the course of the tournament", Rood said.
Woods also set a record for the longest gap between Masters triumphs, the 14 years since his last win in 2005 eclipsing the old mark set by South African Gary Player who won his second Augusta crown in 1961 and his third in 1974.
His most poignant comments were about his family, however, remembering how his late father came out for his first victory in 1997 despite being sick and how special it was to have his mother and two children on hand for this one.
"You can't say enough about Tiger and what he's done for the game". "I think the kids are starting to understand how much this game means to me, and some of the things I've done in the game". Bettors can get 5-to-1 odds on Woods to tie Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 major titles (he's now at 15) and 10-to-1 to break the record.
"This is definitely, probably one of the greatest comebacks I think anybody's ever seen", Koepka said.
