8:20 am
in the u.s. masters we have a limited talking from good of you sports with us to tell us more about the story this is his first major title in eleven years is this the greatest comeback in sports that's what people are saying right possibly yes and exactly that's what people are saying and you know what they were doubts if tiger woods would ever play again after the win you know because of all the back injuries that he's had and after the win yesterday you know tiger woods himself said that his children have only ever seen the pain that gold has caused him you know any time he tried to swing a club you know he'd fall to the ground so you know yes nice comeback absolutely historic you know not just because of you know for but also for him on a very private level let's actually take a look at the at it. it was the moment of redemption for tiger woods the significance of the forty three year old's first major in eleven years could be heard in the roar of the crowed. was
8:21 am
unseen in the emotional embrace of his family to him he'd apologized that an infamous twenty ten press conference after lou details of his passionate life were made public was only two years ago he pleaded guilty for driving under the influence yet here he was again triumphant on the last day of the masters was the overnight leader italy's francesco molinari had slipped up two bogeys on the back nine leaving the door open to the chasing pack. and it was woods who took advantage belying recent problems to grab the lead who was the crowed willing the ball towards the whole woods never looked likely to relinquish it. was
8:22 am
released and joy were extreme with his face as he claimed his fifth green jacket on fifteenth major he must know have his sights set on jack nicklaus's record of eighteen was you know lima we saw there it's been such a difficult road back for tiger woods how unlikely did that victory seem over the past few years oh highly unlikely i mean golf experts needy experts had written this man off his physical and emotional issues were just seen to be way too big to surmount you know the chaos in his private life the marriage problems the cheating scandals and then of course his physical condition you know he's had four back injuries and he you know he was really public about it he was constantly in karolides in pain he said that he could barely sit still could be any walk so you know two years ago you know he was also. rest in peace mentioned he was arrested for driving. under the influence and five drugs were found in his body namely painkillers and would soon sell it had come out saying that you know i don't know
8:23 am
if i could ever take oath again or get a loan and normal life so it's incredible he beat all odds you know and he did it also beating some of the best in golf yesterday and you know let's hear from the man himself now could have had. more drama. than what we know. and. i'm not in a warm bolding. this stuff is hard. just to come back here and play as well as i did and did all the things all the little things well this week and to do it here this is that so much to me my family this tournament. to have everyone here it's something i'll never forget the whole motional he is there lima what you think comes next for tiger is going to dominate now for the next how many years so the motivation is there the will is there we've seen the self believe he has fifteen majors and you know he knows he
8:24 am
can make history if he does surpass jack nicholson as you know a record of eighteen so he knows he's really close to that but of course the only concern that i have is that you know the only thing holding him back is that he won't get younger he is forty three years old and of course as you know his health you know ken his body keep up can he sustain the sort of performances on a regular basis this was one tournaments but can he do it on a regular basis and i think that might prove to be a bit more tricky if so do you think that we could see him eclipse that record of eighteen majors you know when it comes to tiger woods i am not driving this man off because you know we all did it after two thousand and nine and he proved us all wrong yesterday all right a limit on his four thank you so much for bringing us that story. motor sports now and lewis hamilton coasted to victory at the chinese grand prix as mercedes dominated formula one's one thousand race reigning world champion hamilton
