Woods and Molinari set for back-nine Masters showdown

- The comeback is complete.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, much like the patrons at the event, was in disbelief about Woods' win.

Former champion Ian Woosnam has called time on his playing career at the Masters for the second time.

After Sunday's victory, Woods trails only the legendary Jack Nicklaus, who has 18 career major titles.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham is using the Masters as motivation for the upcoming season. Tiger Woods has his fifth Masters title. Woods' name was removed from the game after the 2014 edition.

Brooks Koepka of the US hits off the 2nd tee during third round play.

Woods' combined score of 205 through three rounds at Augusta ties that same score he shot in 2002 and 205 - both Tiger wins.

Brooks Koepka relinquished his share of the Masters lead on Saturday but the American is not about to panic given the increased self-belief that helped him bag two of the last three majors. "I could barely walk".

"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". "So I enjoy it, it's fun, getting definitely more comfortable with it as every major goes by".

Paired together in the final round of last year's British Open, won by the Italian at Carnoustie, Molinari and Woods found themselves in the last group again battling for a major title. But on Sunday it was Molinari who slipped up, with the 36-year-old from Turin finding the water at the 12th and 15th.

"From my point of view it's just a step along the way", Molinari said.
