Tiger Woods Has Won The Masters - His First Since 2005!

Brooks Koepka chips to the 15th green during the second round for the Masters golf tournament Friday

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. Tiger has two children, Sam, 12, and Charlie, with his 39-year-old ex-wife Elin Nordegren.

To Tiger Woods the joyous scene by the 18th green confirmed that his career, if not his life, has come "full circle".

Not since the 2008 U.S. Open had Woods hoisted a major trophy and the last of his four Augusta titles came in 2005. He drifted out of contention with another double bogey at the par-5 15 hole to finish tied for fifth place, two shots behind champion Tiger Woods. When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

Woods now has 15 major titles overall, just three behind Jack Nicklaus' record of 18.

Giants of the sporting world have been queuing up to pay tribute to Tiger Woods after the 43-year-old defied the odds to once again claim one of golf's biggest prizes.

"I missed a couple of years of playing this great tournament, now to be winning it".

Professionally, it's an impressive comeback for sure after Woods' was forced to undergo surgeries for back and leg injuries that almost ended his career.

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

At Carnoustie it was Woods who stumbled on the back nine while leading.

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.

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. I am so happy for him and for the game of golf.
