Tiger Woods wins Masters to end decade in the wilderness

Tiger Woods wins Masters to end decade in the wilderness

Although it is the first major Woods has won starting a final round behind the lead, he showed his once-dominant self when he took the outright lead with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th and never looked back.

Woods completed sport's greatest comeback on the weekend after winning his fifth Green Jacket - his first major win since all the way back in 2008 at the US Open.

"They were at the Open a year ago when I had the lead, made a few mistakes, and cost myself a chance to win".

Tiger Woods, 43, celebrated his huge Masters tournament win on April 14 by running into the arms of his 10-year-old son Charlie.

After his win, Woods also embraced his mother, Kultida, and girlfriend, Eric Herman. I know that I made a few mistakes the last couple tournaments, but it just felt like it was there. 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter.

"To have my kids there - it's come full circle".

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.

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.

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

Australia's Jason Day (67) was tied fifth at 11 under alongside 54-hole leader Francesco Molinari, Webb Simpson (70) and Tony Finau (72).

The years since his last major victory have been drama-filled for Woods. The two double bogeys ended his Green Jacket bid.
