    Comeback Complete: Tiger Woods completes long road to redemption with 2019 Masters Victory

    From the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” to the Cleveland Cavaliers epic 3-1 comeback, we always remember where we were when the greatest moments in sports occur. This will prove to be the case with Tiger Woods, who after years of hardship, won the 2019 Masters on April 14.
