  • Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

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.

Tiger Woods rallied to win the Masters for the fifth time Sunday, a comeback that goes well beyond the two-shot deficit he erased before a delirious audience at Augusta National that watched memories turn into reality.

'Last year I was just very lucky to be playing again. I was willing his final putt in for him.

"To have my kids there was [wonderful], I've come full circle".

The storm was scheduled to hit the Augusta, Georgia area at 4pm local time but is now likely to arrive before noon - increasing concerns the Masters may go to a rare Monday (US time) finish. And now I'm the dad [and the kids are here]. I missed a couple of years of not playing this great tournament to now being champion. And what a remarkable return it was for Tiger Woods.

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 The Open Championship, where he led in the final round, and PGA Championship, where he finished runner-up.

Fallen hero, crippled star, and now a Masters champion again.

Woods was briefly three strokes behind 54-hole leader Francesco Molinari, only to post three birdies in a three-hole stretch from the 13th to take a two-stroke lead into the par-four last.

At Carnoustie it was Woods who stumbled on the back nine while leading. The two double bogeys ended his Green Jacket bid.

Officials changed the format for the final round - switching play to groups of three instead of two, and having golfers start from two separate tees, the 1st and the 18th.
