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

Tiger Woods has won a fifth Masters

Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today?

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

His dream of surpassing Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major victories appeared over but Sunday threw up one of sport's greatest stories ever told and gives him a glimmer of hope of becoming golf's most decorated player in history.

There were tears in Woods's eyes as he thought not only his late father, Earl, who died 13 years ago, but also of Charlie, 10, and Sam, 12, who were there to greet him after his first major triumph in 11 years.

"It's overwhelming just because I was very lucky just to be playing again", added in Butler Cabin.

"That win at East Lake was a big confidence-booster for me because I had come close previous year a couple times, which still have to get it across the finish line, and I didn't quite do it", said Woods, who will rise to sixth when the world rankings are updated on Monday.

Donald Trump says of his daughter Ivanka, and makes a suggestion
Ivana told The Atlantic: " She likes Melania fine, because she didn't cause me to break up the marriage like the other one". Ivanka Trump apparently was less upset with her mother and father's divorce than she was for not having anticipated it.

"My mum was here and she was here in 97 as well".

Although it is the first major Woods has won starting a final round behind the lead, he showed his once-dominant self when he took the outright lead with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th and never looked back.

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.

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. After a poor chip he two-putted for a double bogey-5 to fall into a tie for the lead.

At Carnoustie it was Woods who stumbled on the back nine while leading. Here, 22 years later, he hugged his children. The two double bogeys ended his Green Jacket bid.

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.
