Woods, 43, shot a 2-under 70 for a one-stroke victory in Augusta, Georgia, to win his 15th major championship. Trump said that it was a “fantastic life comeback for a really great guy.”

It was his first major win since the 2008 U.S. Open, capping a remarkable recovery from debilitating injuries and embarrassing personal problems. He triumphed in the 2018 Tour Championship, which had been his first victory of any kind since 2013.
