Tiger Woods wins Masters to claim first major in 11 years

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Woods also captured his 15th career major crown, leaving him three behind Jack Nicklaus's record 18. Here, 22 years later, he hugged his children.

"I didn't do it at Tampa, I didn't do it at The Open Championship, I was a little better at the PGA, but still I didn't win". When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

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

"My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids here", he added.

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. Things turned around in 2018, with a win at the Tour Championship his first victory on tour in five years.

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

Twitter Scorches AOC For Comment to Dan Crenshaw About Terrorism
Ocasio-Cortez was reacting to criticism by Crenshaw - a retired Navy SEAL who lost an eye fighting al-Qaida - of Muslim Rep. She then added that her "love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be in question".

Woods, who began the final round two shots back of overnight leader Francesco Molinari, carded a two-under-par 70 to finish one shot ahead of fellow Americans Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka.

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

The years since his last major victory have been drama-filled for Woods.

"There are so many different things that can happen on the back nine on Sunday", he added.

In an exciting conclusion to what is considered Golf's top tournament, Woods trailed by two shots but produced the goods to win his fifth Green Jacket.

With Molinari finding water at the 12th and 15th holes and making double-bogey at both, Woods seized his chance and made a clutch par putt at 12 before carding birdies at 13, 15 and 16, where he hit one of his sweetest irons of the week to within two feet of the cup.
