Sunday was supposed to be the final round of the 2020 Masters had the COVID-19 pandemic not intervened. Instead, fans had the chance to relive Tiger Woods' triumph one year ago.

As the replay unfolded, the 15-time major champion spoke with CBS Sports' Jim Nantz about some of the round's most pivotal moments and lasting images.

Woods explained that he was to some extent unaware of what was happening after his bogey putt on No. 18 sealed the title and went on to speak about how special it was to celebrate with his family:

“I don’t remember screaming, I don’t remember putting my arms up, and I don’t remember yelling.” Tiger may not remember much of his 2019 celebration. Thankfully, everyone else always will. #MastersRewind https://t.co/tyM88sx966

One turning point in Woods' quest for victory arrived on No. 12, when Francesco Molinari double-bogeyed and Woods sank a tricky putt to save par.

His birdie putt on No. 15 gave him sole possession of first place at 13 under, and he followed with another birdie on No. 16 to fortify his lead. Tiger nearly aced the par-three hole as his tee shot rolled just wide of the cup.

Apparently aces have been hard to come by for the golf legend over the last two decades.

While it didn't totally make up for the absence of a traditional Masters on Sunday, listening to Woods narrate one of the most improbable results of his illustrious career provided a much-needed fix as the PGA Tour waits to resume action.
