Golf: Tiger Woods wins 15th major with fifth victory at the Masters

Phil Mickelson hits a drive on the ninth hole during the second round for the Masters golf tournament Friday

"I was just trying to plod my way through the course all day". Sam had a soccer tournament yesterday but I managed to persuade them to come up and watch the Masters, and I was able to win'.

While disappointed, the Englishman was glad it was Tiger Woods who came out on top to win his fifth Green Jacket.

Tiger Woods has emerged triumphant at Augusta to win the US Masters for the fifth time, capping an incredible comeback from back problems and scandals that had dogged his career in recent years. And now I'm the dad [and the kids are here].

In a rollercoaster final round, which at one stage had five co-leaders, Woods held his nerve to come through for a final round of 70 to finish on 13-under, one clear of Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka.

Tiger Woods pulled off arguably the greatest comeback sport has ever seen, and in doing so brought back the memories of yesteryear with a sublime final round at Augusta to become Masters champion.

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

'[It is] Unreal for me to experience this, my mom was here and she was there in 97 as well. And what a remarkable return it was for Tiger Woods. With the final group still in the 15th fairway, there was a five-way tie for the lead.

After winning his first green jacket in 1997, Woods shared the joyous moment with his father Earl, who pulled him into a huge embrace.

With a strong storm system moving across the state, Masters officials moved up the final round to Sunday morning.

However, an eagle on 15 for Patrick Cantlay put the American atop the leaderboard at -12, only for Schauffele to join him after a birdie at 14 while Brooks Koepka made an eagle at 13 to draw level with Woods and Molinari.
