Masters 2019: Brooks Koepka says everyone would love to stop Tiger Woods from winning another major

Masters 2019: Brooks Koepka says everyone would love to stop Tiger Woods from winning another major Tiger Woods sits second all time in major championship wins with 14, but he hasn't won one since the 2008 U.S. Open. In that time, a new generation of golfers has come into the game and relishes beating Woods. There is not nearly the intimidation factor in Woods' game as there once was, and now players are actively trying to keep him from winning rather than standing in awe of him. "I think everybody in the field would love to stop him. I mean, I enjoyed stopping history," Koepka said at his press conference Tuesday at the Masters. "I had a great time.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — You’re a stoic golf fan, so you didn’t get choked up when Tiger Woods threw his fists in the air after claiming his monumental fifth Masters title on Sunday at Augusta National. That’s fine. Understood. But there’s no way you didn’t start begin to have your lip quiver when Woods walked off the 18th green and greeted his family.

We'll hang on … we all need a moment.

The hugs for his son, Charlie, and daughter, Sam, as well as his mother and girlfriend were an emotional bookend to a similar moment 22 years, when Woods hugged his father and mother after walking off the 18th with his first green jacket victory. It was something not lost on Tiger himself as he described what it felt like on Sunday.

“It was pretty big embrace … to have my kids there. It’s come full circle,” Tiger said afterward. “My dad was here in ’97, now I’m the dad sharing it with my kids. I’m at a loss for words. … To see what it’s like to have their dad win a major championship, I hope it’s something they never forget.”

Amazingly, there was a chance that the family wasn’t all going to be together for Sunday’s final round. Woods explained that his daughter was in Florida the day before in a competition of her own. But Tiger managed to convince Sam that it was worth making the trip.

“To have my little boy, Charle, here, it’s just special to have him,” Woods said. “And Sam lost a state soccer tournament yesterday so I sort of convinced them You want to come up to watch the Masters? I was lucky to be able to win.”

Tiger Woods waking up ridiculously early for final round of the Masters

Tiger Woods waking up ridiculously early for final round of the Masters The Masters moved up its schedule for Sunday’s final round due to the possibility of severe weather later in the day, and Tiger Woods has given us an idea of just how much of an impact that will have on the golfers. Tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. ET off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees, with the leaders teeing off at 9:20 a.m. Since the tee times are beginning so early, Tiger said Saturday that he will be waking up around 3:45 a.m. to get his routine started. How will Tiger prepare for his early tee time Sunday? "I'll wake up around 4 a.m., maybe 3:45 a.m… Start the process of getting this body ready and get after it." Anyone else going to wake up at 3:45 with Tiger tomorrow? — GOLF.

We shouldn’t do this to you, now that you’re got your emotions under control. But here’s another pretty special moment from after the round.

Who knew it was going to be a full-Kleenex box day at Augusta.
