Tiger Woods wins Masters to claim first major in 11 years

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

All eyes were on Tiger Woods, Francesco Molinari and the weather as the race for the Green Jacket turned into a sprint on Sunday with the Masters heading towards a stormy finish.

So sure are forecasters of unsafe weather that Augusta National announced that there will be no Green Jacket ceremony on the terrace putting green in order to expedite gate closures and get people off the course.

Paired together in the final round of last year's British Open, won by the Italian at Carnoustie, Woods will be hoping for a different outcome at Augusta National as he bids to end an 11-year major drought by claiming a fifth Green Jacket.

The message alongside the video, reads: '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'.

It's the first time Woods has won a major when he didn't hold the 54-hole lead, and sets a new record for the longest gap between Masters victories.

Woods, with a big smile on his face, thrust both arms into the air as holed his final putt on the 18th green for a bogey.




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

Sunday's victory by Tiger was massive in more ways than one.

He ended last season by winning the Tour Championship and showed signs of a breakthrough at the majors by being a title contender at last year's The Open Championship, where he led in the final round, and PGA Championship, where he finished runner-up.

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.

Woods, Molinari, Xander Schauffele, Brooks Kopeka and Dustin Johnson with Australian Jason Day in the clubhouse on 11-under and Patrick Cantlay, who also hit 12-under, foiled by bogeys at 16 and 17. 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter.
