If Donald Trump and Barack Obama are in agreement, you know something incredible has happened.
Both presidents were united in their admiration of Tiger Woods, the golfing phenomenon who returned to the top of the sporting world by winning the Masters on Sunday.
The 43-year-old’s win sent social media into a frenzy, with a host of stars rushing to congratulate the now 15-time major winner.
Congratulations to @TigerWoods., a truly Great Champion!

Many consider Woods to be the greatest golfer of all time and another GOAT, Serena Williams, was overcome by what he had achieved.

While many were calling the 43-year-old’s win the most incredible of sporting triumphs, not everyone was so generous.
Second most thrilling sporting achievement I’ve seen. The best: Leicester winning the league.

And his fellow golfers were delighted for Woods, even Phil Mickelson - who has been doing battle with his compatriot for over 20 years.
What a great moment for the game of golf. I’m so impressed by @TigerWoods' incredible performance, and I'm so happy for him to capture another Green Jacket. Truly a special day that will go down in history. Congratulations, Tiger! #rematch 😎
