Tiger Woods makes comeback with his fifth victory at The Masters

Tiger Woods makes comeback with his fifth victory at The Masters

Woods signed for a two-under 70 in the final round, finishing on minus 13, just ahead of Xander Schauffele, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka.

Entering Sunday's final day of play, Woods had been tied for second place with Tony Finau, but the 43-year-old Stanford University grad outplayed everybody down the stretch including leader Francesco Molinari, who suffered notably bad luck and a bit of a meltdown on two holes on the back nine that ended up leaving enough of an opening for Woods to make his move.

A United States gambler was probably as excited as Tiger Woods over his victory at the Masters.

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.

"To have my kids there was [wonderful], I've come full circle. My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids there".

Last week, a bettor wagered $US85,000 that Woods would break his 11-year drought in the Majors at Augusta National at the odds of $15.

The go-ahead goal was scored by Seth Jones on the power play with 5:55 remaining on assists by Artemi Panarin and Zach Werenski . The Columbus Blue Jackets are making a serious bid to knock the team with the best regular-season record out of the playoffs.

Written off as too old and too beaten up from four back surgeries and multiple knee operations, Woods underwent a back fusion in 2017 and slowly returned to form.

All those moments built to Sunday, when Woods was once again his old familiar dominating self.

Woods, meanwhile, shook off any lingering effects of back-to-back bogeys with a tap in birdie to slice Molinari's advantage to a single stroke.

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.
