BREAKING: Trump Congratulates Masters Winner Tiger Woods!

On Sunday, following his victory at the The Masters, President Trump took to Twitter to congratulate golf legend Tiger Woods.

Woods’ victory was his first Masters win in 14 years, a remarkable accomplishment and comeback for the outspoken Trump supporter.

“Love people who are great under pressure,” said Trump, adding, “What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!”

Woods, a frequent golf partner of President Trump’s, has previously stated his support, and has earned Trump’s praise as he mounted his epic comeback.

Fox News reported that it was a Sunday unlike any other at this tradition unlike any other.

But as on four previous Sunday afternoons at Augusta National Golf Club, Tiger Woods stood alone at the top of the Masters leaderboard.

Woods, 43, shot a 2-under par 70 to win his first green jacket since 2005 and his first major since the 2008 U.S. Open. His 13-under 275 was enough to defeat Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffle, and Brooks Koepeka by one stroke, but that does not begin to tell the story of a dramatic Sunday that ended approximately four-and-a-half hours early after tee times were moved ahead due to the threat of severe weather.

Woods ended up winning the Masters, and President Trump was cheering him on the entire time, and he took to Twitter to congratulate his good friend on a hard-fought win and an amazing “life comeback.”

Woods and President Trump have been friends for years and recently, Tiger was forced to defend that friendship.

Over the weekend, Tiger Woods briefly opened up about his longtime friendship with President Donald Trump, though he made sure to avoid controversial issues that have so far defined Trump’s presidency.

After Woods wrapped up the final round of the Northern Trust on Sunday, the golfing legend was asked to comment on his professional and personal relationship with the president, according to ASAP Sports.

“Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years,” Woods, 42, said. “We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency.”

Trump and Woods played golf together just weeks after the 2016 election, and the two once again shared a game together during Thanksgiving last year.

“[What] most impressed me was how far he hits the ball at 70 years old,” Woods said of Trump on his website, as spotted by the Washington Post. “He takes a pretty good lash.”

Trump has never been shy about hiding his love for the sport and has spent some 150 days of his more than 580 days as president at a golf club. He also owns 17 golf courses in the United States and overseas.

Woods has a villa named after him at Trump’s Miami resort, according to ESPN.
