Tiger Woods has a fairytale comeback and silences all his doubters
Written By: Michae’ Baisden
This weekend, Tiger Woods won his first major tournament in 22 year. The fairytale comeback stunned audiences when Woods received his fifth green jacket.
SkratchTV created a video to show Woods just how many people thought he’d never be here again.
The organization sat the golf legend down and had him watch a series of commentators talk about his career. All of the commentators spoke about how Woods would never be the same, never when a tournament yet alone take the Masters.
“Here’s what’s going to happen…He is not going to win another tournament,” said one sports commentator.
“The short game is gone. His health is gone,” said ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith.
During the course of the video Woods just sits through, throwing a few smirks in between comments.

Woods, 43, has had a number of scandals and physical injuries since his last title.
Which makes the victory that much sweeter.
Woods went through four surgeries on his back, including spinal fusion two years ago, reports say.
“I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago,” Woods said, according to MSN.com. “I could barely walk. I couldn’t sit. Couldn’t lay down. I really couldn’t so much of anything. … To have the opportunity to come back like this, it’s probably one of the biggest wins I’ve ever had for sure because of it.”
And of course the major 2009 sex scandal, which broke up his marriage to wife Elin Nordegren.
In 2017 his career was rocked with a DUI arrest and an infamous mugshot. He was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to reckless driving.
Woods is now the second all-time at the Master’s only behind Jack Nicklaus, who won six times between 1963 and 1986.
Former president Barack Obama also praised Woods in a tweet, writing: ‘Congratulations, Tiger! To come back and win the Masters after all the highs and lows is a testament to excellence, grit, and determination.’
Tiger walked off the grass and embraced his 10-year-old son Charlie, mother and 11-year-old daughter Sam.
“For them to see what it’s like to have their dad win a major championship, I hope that’s something they will never forget,” Woods said.
