Punter scores record win on Tiger Woods' Masters victory

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.

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.

But it was the 43-year-old's first Masters title since 2005.

But in the mix in the last day of the Masters, Woods drew in casual golf fans from all over the globe to tune in to see if he could do it, with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola openly admitting he might watch the tournament over Liverpool-Chelsea.

Unsurprisingly, the triumph also renewed talks of Woods making a run at Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 majors.

When his final putt disappeared into the cup, Woods delivered one of his trademark fist pumps then raised both arms in the air screaming in absolute delight as the crowd chanted, "Tiger, Tiger, Tiger".

The years since his last major victory have been drama-filled for Woods.

It was the U.S. golfing icon's 15th major in all - and fifth win at Augusta - but the first time he has clinched one of golf's big four prizes since 2008. Impossibly, ridiculously, Tiger Woods is back on top in golf again, with his fused back, his pile of lost years and his talent somehow back from the dead.
