Tiger caps comeback with 15th major title

Molinari sits alone atop The Masters leaderboard at 13-under-par

Now, he's back on top with his first green jacket at Augusta National since 2005.

Those errors left him too far back to prevent Woods claiming a remarkable fifth Masters victory and a 15th major championship, with Molinari limping home in 74 to finish two shots off the pace on 11 under par.

Tiger Woods, 43, celebrated his huge Masters tournament win on April 14 by running into the arms of his 10-year-old son Charlie.

In 2002 he emulated Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus in winning back-to-back Masters. Things turned around in 2018, with a win at the Tour Championship his first victory on tour in five years.

Molinari played in the final pairing with Woods at the British Open previous year and beat him.

It's the first time Woods has won a major when he didn't hold the 54-hole lead, and sets a new record for the longest gap between Masters victories.

"I was as patient as I've been in a number of years out there", Woods said.

That was good enough at the time to pull even with Tony Finau and Italian Francesco Molinari , the British Open champion. Tiger Woods has a two-shot lead with two holes to play and is closing in on his first Masters title since 2005.

His departure is yet another complication for a war-torn country struggling to maintain peace. The Pope also kissed their feet. "We must deliver", Machar said.

Those controversies, not to mention his being limited to just 24 tournament starts in four years from 2014, saw him written off by some observers and he told 18-time major victor Jack Nicklaus he "was done" at the Masters Champions Dinner in 2017.

"To have the opportunity to come back like this it is probably one of the biggest wins I've ever had for sure because of it". There was a lot of times when I really couldn't move, and so that in itself is hard.

"I think the kids are starting to understand how much the game means to me", Woods added.

All those moments built to Sunday, when Woods was once again his old familiar dominating self. Just their infectiousness of happiness; I was going through a tough time physically.

Koepka, one of four players from the final two groups who hit into the water on No. 12, rallied with an eagle on the 13th, narrowly missed another eagle on the 15th and was the last player with a chance. I was close a year ago in the majors.

Dressed in his traditional final-round red shirt, Woods collected his first birdie of the day, rolling in an eight-footer at the third, to trim Molinari's lead to a single shot, but then gave it right back with a bogey at the par-three fourth.

"I wasn't going to let that happen to them twice", he said. "I learned from those, and was able to seal the deal today".
