The putt that sealed Tiger Woods' Masters win

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Woods completed sport's greatest comeback on the weekend after winning his fifth Green Jacket - his first major win since all the way back in 2008 at the US Open.

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.

Woods, one shy of matching Nicklaus for the most career Masters wins, won his 81 career US PGA victory, one shy of the all-time record held by Sam Snead. Now, the only other player with more Masters wins than Tiger is Jack Nicklaus with six.

"I managed to scramble well on the front nine and I think I just had a couple of mental lapses on the back nine that were costly", said Molinari, who admitted his first error at the 12th was "just a bad execution". 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.

With Finau also carding a bogey and Koepka dropping a shot at the sixth, Molinari suddenly found himself alone at the top of the leaderboard with a three-shot advantage.

But the middle booster missed a seaborne platform it was created to land on, and instead splashed into the ocean. It consists of the equivalent of three Falcon 9 rockets combined, tripling its thrust.

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.

"My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids here", he added.

In a desperate attempt to get the season's first major across the finish line before the storm hit, officials pushed up start times and sent golfers off in threesomes from both the first and 10th tees.

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. 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter.
