Tiger Woods captures fifth Masters golf title — CP NewsAlert

Molinari sits alone atop The Masters leaderboard at 13-under-par

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.

'I'll just keep doing the same and hopefully I get a bit more luck next time'. "I could barely walk".

The victory comes 14 years after the last of his Masters titles.

"My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids there", he said. He is only the second player to win a Masters in three different decades.

"It has come full circle", Woods said.

"Now to be the champion - 22 years between wins is a long time - it's unreal for me to experience this". I really couldn't do much of anything. I'm kind of at a loss for words.

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

Former world No.1 Woods has moved to within three of Jack Nicklaus' all-time record 18 victories and one behind Sam Snead's record 82 US PGA Tour wins.

"A big "well done" from me to Tiger", Nicklaus tweeted. "I'm so happy for him and for the game of golf this is so fantastic". Right now it's a little soon.

"I felt if I could somehow piece this together that I still had the hands to do it", Woods said.

'The way he was playing a year ago, I think we all knew it was coming sooner or later. "I'm sure he's home in West Palm (Beach, Florida) just chilling and watching".

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

He ended last season by winning the Tour Championship and showed signs of a breakthrough at the majors by being a title contender at last year's British Open, where he led in the final round, and PGA Championship, where he finished runner-up.

"It means the world to me", Woods said.

"All these different scenarios keep flying around".

Since his last major win, he had taken an "indefinite break" from golf in 2009 after admissions of infidelity and the breakdown of his marriage.

- The comeback is complete.

"You couldn't have had more drama than we all had out there". "Now I know why I'm balding". "This stuff is hard".

Sunday's victory by Tiger was massive in more ways than one.

He became the second-oldest Masters victor, trailing only Nicklaus at 46 in 1986. But for a generation of young golf fans who had never seen Woods win a major, they finally witnessed the deafening roar of the crowd and experienced the magic of one of golf's greatest ever players.

It was only two years ago at Augusta National that Woods needed a nerve block just to hobble upstairs to the Champions Dinner, unsure he would ever play another round of golf.
