Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Woods shot a final round of two under par 70 to finish at 13 under, one stroke clear of Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka. 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.

It had been 11 years since Tiger Woods had last won a major tournament.

Some of golf's best and brightest were also quick off the mark in congratulating their rival, including Jack Nicklaus - whose record of 18 major titles is being chased down by Woods - and Great White Shark, Greg Norman.

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

One fan joyously replied to the video, "Tiger Woods FINALLY EMBRACING HIS SON AFTER A MASTERS WIN". I really felt that I was starting to shape the golf ball, and my putting was starting to come around. "When I tapped the putt in, I don't know what I did but I know I screamed".

"And I just kept telling myself to miss the ball in the correct spots, and I did, time and time again". After a poor chip he two-putted for a double bogey-5 to fall into a tie for the lead.

"There are so many different things that can happen on the back nine on Sunday", he added. There were so many different scenarios that could have happened after 12. "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". "I am so inspired thank you buddy". It hasn't sunk in at all.
