Golf: Tiger Woods Wins 2019 Masters To Land 15th Major Title

Tiger Woods, on Sunday, won the Masters at a rainy Augusta National, his fifth Masters title that marked the end of an 11-year wait to claim a 15th major.

The 43-year-old golf legend walked up the 18th hole to the sound of roaring cheers to secure victory.

Woods shot a final round score of 70 to finish 13-under par, one clear of fellow Americans Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka.
Sunday’s victory was his fifth green jacket since 1997 and his first since 2005.

Reacting to this victory, Woods said: “I’m a little hoarse from yelling. I was just trying to plod my way around all day then all of a sudden I had the lead.

“Coming up 18 I was just trying to make a five. When I tapped in I don’t know what I did, I know I screamed.

“To have my kids there, it’s come full circle. My dad was here in 1997 and now I’m the dad with two kids there.

“It will be up there with one of the hardest I’ve had to win because of what has transpired in the last couple of years.”

When Woods won the 2008 US Open, few people imagined it would take another 11 years for the next major to come along, in arguably the greatest career comeback in the history of golf nearly a decade after injuries and scandal derailed his game.
