CLEVELAND, Ohio- There were many who believed Tiger Woods would never win a major again.
Numerous players he beat on Sunday were inspired as young boys to emulate Woods. Among the four majors, the Masters is second in purse behind the U.S. Open ($12 million), but ahead of the PGA Championship ($11 million) and the Open Championship ($10.5 million).

An all-American trio of three-time major victor Brooks Koepka, world number two Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele shared second on 276.
The victory also brought Woods closer to tying Nicklaus' record of 18 major championships.
"It's been a while since I've been in contention here, " Woods said told ESPN.
In his first 14 major victories, Woods either led or was tied for the lead heading into the final round.
Other colleagues shared similar thoughts, some of whom were among those standing at the Augusta National clubhouse to greet Woods following his victory. But it's not like I can only worry about him. Lehman's No. 1 total from 1996 would have ranked 69th in 2018, when 114 golfers made at least $1 million and the only events to pay out less than seven figures to their victor were alternate tournaments run the same week as major world contests. He won the U.S. Open in 2017 as well.
Koepka will tee off at 9:09 a.m. with Webb Simpson and Ian Poulter in his group, according to The Sporting News.
