Business Lessons From Tiger Woods' Triumph at the Masters

Tiger Woods’ victory at the 2019 Masters tournament is being hailed as one of the greatest comeback in sports history. The tournament marks the player’s first win after a gap of over a decade during which Woods underwent significant physical and psychological trauma before finally emerging a winner.

The analogy of this triumph is akin to Steve Jobs’ story at Apple. After founding the company and being compelled to leave it, Jobs not only returned to Apple, he actually took the firm to unprecedented heights. Tiger Woods had been soaring great heights in his golfing career when his fall from grace happened.

The last major championship he had won was way back in 2008. The years that followed were plagued with physical injuries which required multiple surgeries, a very public meltdown of his marriage owing to an infidelity scandal, overuse of prescription drugs and arrest under DUI.

A couple of years back even the most ardent Woods fans were wondering if he would ever win another title. People were actually speculating if he would ever play competitively again, let alone winning a tournament. The prolonged gap between Tiger’s last victory and the recent one is what makes it so much more awe-inspiring.
