Tiger Woods won the 83rd Masters on Sunday, capturing his 15th major title to cement an epic return from scandal and injuries that once threatened his career.

Allied to his incredible physical skills, Woods has unshakable self-belief and an ability to completely shut out the distractions that come with the territory as one of the world's most famous sportsmen. "My dad was here in 97 (when he won his first Masters) and now I'm the dad with two kids there".

Tiger Woods' first of 81 PGA Tour victories was at the 1996 Las Vegas Invitational, just five weeks after his famous "Hello, world" declaration upon turning pro. The all-time leader for majors victories is Jack Nicklaus with 18.

"I've never had an ace, ever, unfortunately", DeChambeau said. Woods also joins Nicklaus as the only player to have won the Masters in three different decades after he clinched his first as a 21-year-old in 1997. Woods' name was removed from the game after the 2014 edition.

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.

Golf - Masters - Augusta National Golf Club - Augusta, Georgia, U.S. - April 14, 2019. I couldn't sit. Couldn't lay down.

'I've got to go and have a MRI soon, but I can't see that making any difference, it's not really changed for the last 30 years'.

"It was probably a 9-iron yardage but I didn't want the wind to gust and to get the ball too much and I just didn't hit it hard enough", Molinari explained.

In a final round that was played in threesomes off both tees to stay ahead of approaching thunderstorms, Woods grabbed the outright lead for the first time with a two-putt birdie at No. 15. It also ends a almost 11-year major tournament drought for Woods, who last captured one back in 2008 at the US Open.

Ditto for fellow athletes - and champions in their own right - Tom Brady, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Abby Wambach and Serena Williams, several of whom became emotional when Woods sealed the deal. But on Sunday it was Molinari who slipped up, with the 36-year-old from Turin finding the water at the 12th and 15th. Augusta National's signature hole at the heart of Amen Corner had the leaderboard spinning with Koepka, Tony Finau and Ian Poulter all ending up in the murky waters of Rae's Creek.

"I've done a couple of things that I wish I had done differently now but I'll learn from my mistakes".
