Woods wins Masters to claim first major in 11 years

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Giants of the sporting world have been queuing up to pay tribute to Tiger Woods after the 43-year-old defied the odds to once again claim one of golf's biggest prizes.

As Tiger put the famous green jacket back on, a punter was scooping up piles of greenbacks.

Sunday at the Masters, Woods finally beat the generation he helped create, winning his 15th major by shooting a 70 and holding off a deep, talented field at Augusta National.

"It's insane to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15th major is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old", the ad read, before showing a video of Woods as a child saying, "I'm gonna beat Jack Nicklaus".

In 2002 he emulated Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus in winning back-to-back Masters.

He may have won the Masters tournament, but we also think this won for Cutest Moment too!

Woods last won at Augusta in 2005, while Gary Player had 13 years between his 1961 and 1974 wins.

"I think we picked the right shot and just didn't hit it hard enough, as simple as that".

He thanked the Ecuadorian president for co-operating with Britain "to ensure Assange faces justice". Assange fled to the embassy in 2012, when he was facing charges of sexual assault in Sweden.

It is said the Masters does not truly begin until the back nine on Sunday and that held true as Woods and Molinari parred the ninth to head into the turn with everything to play for. I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago.

"To have the opportunity to come back, it's one of the biggest wins I've ever had for sure". I was close past year in the majors.

"Maybe next time it will be better for me, but it was nice to be out with him". At the previous year's dinner, I was really struggling.

Earlier, he started the day with a two-shot lead and sank a four-foot, par-saving putt at the first hole that for a while at least set the tone.

"It's the best I've felt with a driver in years", Woods said.

The three-times major champion launched his drive 332 yards up the fairway and then made an eagle after his approach shot settled 10 feet from the cup.

Koepka, one of four players from the final two groups who hit into the water on No. 12, rallied with an eagle on the 13th, narrowly missed another eagle on the 15th and was the last player with a chance. "I learned from those, and was able to seal the deal today".
