The Best Celebrity Reactions To Tiger Woods' Masters Win
We've already waxed lyrical about the general importance of Tiger Woods' iconic, heroic, legendary Masters victory once this morning, but to get an idea of how much of a cultural phenomenon the man was, you need only look at the general reaction online to see just how much his story has touched people across the world.
Much like Wimbledon, the Super Bowl and the Rugby World Cup, the Masters is one of those weird cultural events that seems to entirely transcend the sport being played itself. All of sudden, in the same way that Athletics becomes must-watch TV once every four years, Golf becomes essential viewing as the final few groups round Amen Corner on their way to deciding who will don the Green Jacket for that year.
Naturally then, the celebrity reaction around the Masters is always massive, and the A-listers from across the sporting and entertainment arenas bought in entirely on the Tiger Woods hype. Once he tapped in his bogey putt to claim his 15th Major, Twitter exploded.
Naturally, it was his fellow Masters competitors who were the first to properly congratulate tiger on the ground at Augusta, with many mentioning just how much Tiger had gone through to get where he was.
Very few people really know what @TigerWoods has been thru to get back to this point. So cool seeing him with Tida, Sam, Charlie, Erica and the rest of the team behind 18 green. Couldn’t be happier for him! What a great day for golf! #TheMasters— Rory McIlroy (@McIlroyRory) 14 April 2019
