This is what the world was like when Tiger Woods last won the Masters in 2005

The Masters - Final Round

Kevin C. Cox

If the back nine at Augusta National on Sunday (re) taught us anything, it's that this is Tiger Woods' world and we're just living in it. With a 14-year chasm between green jackets, however, it's safe to say that world has changed a lot since the Tiger last waltzed into Butler Cabin a Masters champion. How much exactly? Well, let's take a stroll down Magnolia Memory Lane, all the way back to 2005, where trucker hats dotted the standard-definition landscape, the president was still a reality TV star, and the man they call Big Cat just notched number nine into the old black belt. Perhaps then—with a little help from Brangelina, of course—we can finally put number 15 in perspective.
