Punter scores record win on Tiger Woods' Masters victory

Open this

However, dressed in his traditional final-round red shirt, Woods emerged from a back-nine showdown with two-time major victor Molinari to win his fifth Masters title and 15th major of a storied career that moves him three behind Jack Nicklaus' record haul of 18.

An all-American trio of three-time major victor Brooks Koepka, world number two Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele shared second on 276. "When I tapped the putt in, I don't know what I did but I know I screamed". "To have the injuries and come back and do what he has done, it has been tremendous to watch".

Woods also captured his 15th career major crown, leaving him three behind Jack Nicklaus's record 18.

"I am literally in tears watching TigerWoods this is Greatness like no other".

Koepka has said all week he was focused on his own game and not worrying about what anyone else is doing, but that could prove tough come Sunday with the leaders playing right behind him.

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.

And speaking after The Masters win, Woods referenced The Open as a turning point for him.

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.

The comeback is complete.

Molinari scrambled hard on the front nine to maintain his overnight lead, making a number of clutch up-and-downs for par while hitting back from his first bogey in 50 holes at the seventh with a birdie at the eighth.

Due to an ominous weather forecast, golfers will go off from the first and 10th tees in threesomes and Koepka will be followed around the course by the final grouping of Molinari, Tiger Woods and Tony Finau.
