Tiger Woods Wins His Fifth Masters Title

Tiger Woods Wins His Fifth Masters Title

Tiger Woods is a five-time Masters champion.

Tennis giant Serena Williams led the tributes, saying she was "literally in tears" watching his comeback performance.

Unsurprisingly, the triumph also renewed talks of Woods making a run at Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 majors.

Woods had not tasted success at his beloved Augusta National since winning a fourth Green Jacket 14 years ago, and he defied the critics who suggested he would never add to his tally of 14 major championships having endured a wait of over 10-and-a-half years for No 15.

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 didn't do it at Tampa, I didn't do it at The Open Championship, I was a little better at the PGA, but still I didn't win". 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter. When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

Woods' 13-under 275 saw him finish the day one shot clear of Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka, with Molinari a further shot back on 11 under.

Professionally, it's an impressive comeback for sure after Woods' was forced to undergo surgeries for back and leg injuries that almost ended his career.

"To have my kids there, it's come full circle; my dad was here (when I won) in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids here". After a poor chip he two-putted for a double bogey-5 to fall into a tie for the lead.

"It was just fantastic to have Sam and Charlie here for the first time", he said.

"There are so many different things that can happen on the back nine on Sunday", he added.
