Tiger sent a very gracious email, recapping his Masters victory. He seems very mature and even somewhat humble. Here’s a taste:

“More than anything it’s validation of all the hard work I put into it. Hank and I have put some serious hours into this. I read some of the articles over the past year – him getting ripped and me getting ripped for all the changes – and to play as beautifully as I did all week is pretty cool.

“Granted, it wasn’t perfect. I hit a few poor shots coming down the stretch on Sunday, especially my drive at 17 and my 8-iron second shot at 18, which I blocked into the right bunker. I probably made it more dramatic than it should have been, but I had no problem regrouping for the playoff against Chris DiMarco. I came back with two of my best shots of the week: a well-struck 3-wood into the fairway, then flushed an 8-iron to within 15 feet of the hole. The birdie putt felt good as soon as it left my putter.

I must congratulate Chris for his great play. Even when I went ahead by four strokes, I knew he wouldn’t back off and would make me earn it, and that’s exactly what he did. They always say the Masters doesn’t start until the back nine on Sunday and they were right. I was fortunate to win.”

Even further, here’s what Tiger says about Jack’s record 18 majors:

“The other nice thing was that my nine major championships tie Ben Hogan and Gary Player for third place all-time. Jack still leads the way with 18 and will probably never be caught, but you never know. It’s something to shoot for.”
