Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Paired together in the final round of last year's British Open, won by the Italian at Carnoustie, Molinari and Woods found themselves in the last group again battling for a major title.

Augusta National officials had scrapped the usual 18th-green presentation of the green jacket, wanting to clear the course before expected severe weather moved in.

Woods, 43, won a fifth Green Jacket at Augusta National on Sunday, his first major win in 11 years and a first since having four operations on his back.

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.

Francesco Molinari led Tiger Woods by a single shot as they headed into another back-nine showdown on Sunday with the Masters title on the line.

In 2002 he emulated Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus in winning back-to-back Masters.

"Now to be the champion - 22 years between wins is a long time - it's unreal for me to experience this".




"Congratulations to @TigerWoods", tweeted Trump, who earlier this year played golf with Woods.

"I think 18 is a whole lot closer than people think", Koepka said.

With fans chanting his name, an emotional Woods walked off the 18th green and hugged his mother Kultida, daughter Sam and son Charlie just as he had embraced his late father Earl there after his first major victory at the 1997 Masters.

They say the Masters starts on the second nine on Sunday, and this year didn't disappoint, especially with the arrival of the promised rain.

In 2008, grimacing in pain with almost every step, he beat Rocco Mediate in a playoff to win the US Open and despite ever increasing injury troubles his 14th major title appeared to have him within comfortable reach of Nicklaus's record of 18. I really couldn't so much of anything. So maybe next time it will be better for me, but it was nice to be out with him.

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. That has stood as Augusta's defining moment for years. "I learned from those, and was able to seal the deal today".
