  • Tiger Woods wins Masters to claim first major in 11 years

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.

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.
