Tiger Woods Wins Masters, His 15th Major Golf Championship

William Hill US will make their single biggest payout on a golf bet after the punter put $125,66 on Woods to win at Augusta, 11 years after his last major victory.

Former world No.1 Woods has moved to within three of Jack Nicklaus' all-time record 18 victories and one behind Sam Snead's record 82 US PGA Tour wins.

National Basketball Association stars LeBron James and Steph Curry also expressed their admiration, although Curry hoped for a little more from Woods as a result of him claiming a fifth green jacket.

"I'm pretty comfortable being in, being up there on the leaderboard in a major come Sunday", said Koepka, whose roller-coaster round included an eagle, five birdies and four bogeys. I know that I made a few mistakes the last couple tournaments, but it just felt like it was there.

With Finau also carding a bogey and Koepka dropping a shot at the sixth, Molinari suddenly found himself alone at the top of the leaderboard with a three-shot advantage. "My dad was here in 97 (when he won his first Masters) and now I'm the dad with two kids there".

All those moments built to Sunday, when Woods was once again his old familiar dominating self.

A 15th major success was secured in sensational fashion on Sunday as Woods overhauled Francesco Molinari's two-shot overnight lead to prevail by one stroke.

Woods and Molinari, who were paired together in the final round of last year's British Open won by the Italian, will once again be in the last group.

In a desperate attempt to get the season's first major across the finish line before the storm hit, officials pushed up start times and sent golfers off in threesomes from both the first and 10th tees.

At Carnoustie it was Woods who stumbled on the back nine while leading. That ball on 12, if it's one yard further left it probably goes in the bunker and the third shot on 15, it could easily not have clipped the tree and sometimes it is your day, sometimes it isn't, but I'm really happy of the way I felt out there.
