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.

Numerous players he beat on Sunday were inspired as young boys to emulate Woods.

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.

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".


Sunday's thrilling victory puts the former world No.1 just three majors behind the all-time record of Jack Nicklaus. "But then again the last two majors counts for something".

It was also his first victory at a major since a series of personal troubles that began in 2009 pushed Woods to take a break from the sport.

The 43-year-old Woods shot a 2-under 70 for one-stroke victory Sunday and his 15th major championship. "And, you know, the next two majors are at Bethpage, where he's won [2002 U.S. Open], and Pebble Beach, where he's won [2000 U.S. Open]".

Other colleagues shared similar thoughts, some of whom were among those standing at the Augusta National clubhouse to greet Woods following his victory. "So I enjoy it, it's fun, getting definitely more comfortable with it as every major goes by". It also ends a almost 11-year major tournament drought for Woods, who last captured one back in 2008 at the US Open.
