After tapping in for bogey on the 18th green for a one-stroke victory, Tiger Woods let the emotions flow Sunday at Augusta National.

AUGUSTA, GA. – His father had waited for him there in 1997, had flown despite a heart condition and doctor's orders, had flown to Augusta to see his son become the first black man to win a major championship, at a golf club with a history of discrimination. Earl Woods waited by the 18th green at Augusta National and hugged his son and golf changed forever.

His children were waiting for him there on Sunday, were making their first visit to the Masters, and were for the first time watching their father play like a champion, like the man they had seen on old videos and endless commercials. Sam and Charlie waited by the 18th green at Augusta National and hugged their father and Tiger Woods' story changed, again and forever.
