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

Praise has poured in for Tiger Woods after he captured his first major since 2008 with victory at the Masters at Augusta on Sunday, capping a stunning return from injury which some have dubbed the greatest comeback ever.

In 1997 Tiger hugged his father beside the 18th green after claiming his first title, 22 years later he embraced his children in nearly exactly the same spot, amid nearly unprecedented scenes at Augusta as the crowd cheered wildly.

But the signs were different when Woods clinched his first title in five years at the Tour Championship in Atlanta last year.

All eyes were on overnight leader Francesco Molinari, who led by two shots, Woods and the weather when play began as the race for the Green Jacket turned into a final sprint with the forecast predicting rain and thunderstorms.

A U.S. gambler was probably as excited as Tiger Woods over his victory at the Masters.

"It's overwhelming. Because of what transpired past year - I was lucky to be playing again".

Tiger Woods has won a fifth Masters.

The victory also marked the first time Woods had reached the winner's circle at major without leading after 54 holes. From the sex scandal that ended his marriage, to the four back operations that culminated in a spinal fusion two years ago, he has made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
