Tiger Woods wins The Masters for the first time since 2005

Tiger Woods smiles as he walks off the 18th green during the third round for the Masters golf tournament Saturday

The bet on Tiger to win the 2019 Masters Tournament was placed on April 9 at 14/1 (+1400) odds, at one of William Hill's Las Vegas Sports Books.

That, as defined by major victories, belongs to Jack Nicklaus, whose 18 major victories were spread over 24 years, from the 1962 U.S. Open to the 1986 Masters.

Former champion Ian Woosnam has called time on his playing career at the Masters for the second time.

It completes a fairytale comeback to the pinnacle of golf for Woods, whose career imploded after a 2009 sex scandal before unraveling amid injuries and personal problems. When I tapped the putt in - I don't know what I did.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, much like the patrons at the event, was in disbelief about Woods' win.

Woods's return to the top garnered praise from world leaders and sporting greats alike, with United States president Donald Trump and his predecessor Barack Obama both offering congratulations via social media.

And even his fellow golfers were delighted for Woods, even Phil Mickelson - who has been doing battle with his compatriot for over 20 years.

Woods' win came after he shot a 2-under 70 for a one-stroke victory in Augusta, Georgia.

As tradition goes at the green jacket ceremony, the victor of last year's Masters - in this case, Patrick Reed - will bestow the newest green jacket onto the back of this year's victor. In 2017, he underwent a spinal fusion, his fourth back surgery, with hopes of alleviating the pain.

An all-American trio of three-time major victor Brooks Koepka, world number two Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele shared second on 276.

All those moments built to Sunday, when Woods was once again his old familiar dominating self. I couldn't sit. Couldn't lay down. "So I enjoy it, it's fun, getting definitely more comfortable with it as every major goes by".

Weather concerns have already played a huge role in how Sunday's final round is developing with tee times pushed up to start at 7:30 a.m. ET and players sent off in threesomes at split tees.

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. The two double bogeys ended his Green Jacket bid.

"Sometimes it is your day, sometimes it isn't, but I'm really happy of the way I felt out there today", said Molinari.
