While many of the headlines will proclaim that Tiger won his "fifth green jacket," this is technically not true.

When defending champion Patrick Reed presented Woods with the green jacket on Sunday, it was almost certainly the same jacket he was given at his first Masters win in 1997 and the other three wins in between.

According to the Masters media guide, "multiple winners will have only one green jacket unless his size drastically changes."

When Woods put the jacket on Sunday, his first words were "it fits," something most people can't say at 43 about something they first wore when they were 21.

Also, Woods does not get to keep the jacket.

Tiger will get to hold onto the jacket for a year and then will return it to Augusta National Golf Club before next year's tournament. After that, the jacket will remain at the club, and Woods can only wear it when he is there.
