Newcomers, past winners and a host of green jacket hopefuls made final preparations Sunday at Augusta National on the eve of official practice rounds for the 83rd Masters, more than a week ago.

But few could have expected that this year’s first major championship, which began at Augusta on Thursday, would have delivered the thrills that it did.

While there were many subplots, the lead story of the weekend was Tiger Woods. Back in his mock turtle shirts, the same ones he last wore when he won the Masters in 2005, the 43-year old was searching for his first major win in 11 years.

And he got it. Cool as ice on the final day, Woods won his fifth green jacket and his 15th major golf title. While it’s a personal milestone for Woods, the win will go down as one of sport’s greatest ever comebacks.
