Tiger Wins The Masters: His hope for another major left for dead by most of golf, Tiger Woods won The Masters Sunday afternoon. It's the 43-year-old's 15th major and first since 2008. It is his first win at a major where he trailed entering the final day. He was still trailing Francesco Molinari by 2 shots after 11. The catalog of iconic father-son moments after a Woods triumph now includes this boisterous hug of his son Charlie, who is 10 and never had a chance before to see him win like this.

Jim Nantz is a lucky guy every April, but he's especially lucky this year. Two breakthroughs by the often doubted, once dismissed in the span of 6 days.

I know that he's an imperfect human, but I am thrilled for him. To the extent that his issues were not self-inflicted--injuries I mean--I think it's awesome that he could overcome the odds to win #15. To the extent that his issues were self-inflicted--the narcissistic philandering, etc.--I sincerely hope he has gotten himself right in the head.
