I love a great comeback story. It is the main plot of many of my favorite movies. The story is especially intriguing when I find out that it is based on a true story—like the one I witnessed Sunday.

Charlie Woods had one wish for 2019, to see his dad win a golf tournament in person. Charlie got his wish. He witnessed his dad, Tiger Woods, win The Masters. Like Charlie, I was excited to see Tiger Woods win his first major after nearly a decade.

It has been a long journey for Woods after many years of dealing with personal and physical setbacks.

Earl Woods, Tiger’s dad, died in 2006 at the age of seventy-four. At the time, Tiger was thirty years old, winner of ten major tournaments and the greatest golfer in the world. I am not sure we know the true impact of this loss in Tiger’s life.

A few short years later he was divorced followed by years of physical ailments that included multiple back surgeries and procedures between 2014 and 2017.

We watched as he gradually showed signs of the old Tiger and continued to improve leading him back to Augusta National where we witnessed one of the greatest comebacks in sports history.

Tiger said he was most happy that his two children, Charlie and Sam, were able to witness this moment. It was moving to see him embrace his family and celebrate as the crowd roared.

I was pulling for him. I wanted the story to end well. Why? Because that is the story we want for ourselves. We want to believe that when we experience setbacks, whether it be personal, financial, business, or health that we will have the grit and courage to persevere and beat the odds.

Have a great week!
