Tiger Woods Wins His Fifth Masters Title

  • Phil Mickelson hits a drive on the ninth hole during the second round for the Masters golf tournament Friday

While Woods and Molinari held the spotlight, there were other Green Jacket contenders lurking in the shadows, with twice U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and big-hitting Tony Finau just two off the pace.

When his final putt disappeared into the cup, Woods delivered one of his trademark fist pumps then raised both arms in the air screaming in absolute delight as the crowd chanted, "Tiger, Tiger, Tiger".

"I don't know if there are words - I'm sure he's ecstatic about it", Koepka said.

Francesco Molinari gives an honest assessment of his performance, and speaks about Tigers' 2019 Masters win.

Molinari was also magnanimous in his praise for Woods, who took full advantage of his playing-partners mistakes and reeled off three birdies in four holes from the 13th before closing out a momentous win amid jubilant scenes on and around the 18th green.

Molinari had played near flawless golf through the first three rounds, carding a single bogey, but on Sunday a bogey along with the two doubles during a miserable final round of two-over 74 left him two back of the victor. Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today?

Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, eagled the par-5 15th to reach eight-under but a bogey at 16 dropped him back into the pack. Rose, Garcia and Willett, at four-over-par 148, missed by one stroke, while Schwartzel was two shots over the line.

Who's going to win the Chinese Grand Prix?
In searching for a breakthrough with his 2019 machine, Vettel cited the two-day post-race test in Bahrain as "very helpful".

Woods served notice he had returned to form by contending last year at the British Open and PGA before snapping a five-year title drought by capturing the Tour Championship.

The comeback is complete.

"Congratulations, Tiger! To come back and win the Masters after all the highs and lows is a testament to excellence, grit, and determination".

The ice cool Italian, however, would not be rattled, rolling in a clutch 13-footer for birdie at the eighth, with Woods also gaining a shot.

Woods sent his drive at 10 way right, forcing him to chip out and leading to a bogey.

Augusta National moved the final round to Sunday morning due to storms expected to arrive in the afternoon, when leaders would typically be battling for the title.
