When he found them, Woods bent down to embrace his son Charlie. Then, he hugged his mother, his daughter, his girlfriend, and other family and friends overjoyed with his victory.
Woods’ embrace of his son was reminiscent of his first Masters win in 1997, when Woods went to hug his own father after walking off of the 18th green.

The similarities were not lost on Woods. Recollecting his thoughts in Butler Cabin after his win, Woods said that while his memory right after sinking the putt was a blur, what immediately came to mind was finding his children.
“Tapping the putt in, I don’t know what I did,” Woods told CBS commentator Jim Nantz. “I screamed, looked for Joey somewhere. Shook the guys hands. Found Joey. To have my kids there, it’s just gone full circle. In ’97 I had my dad there and now I’m a dad with two kids there.”
“My dad shouldn’t have been there, that year , he was recovering from a heart attack… heart surgery. And now my little boy, Charlie, the embrace. It just… special, to have them here.”
