Honorary starter Jack Nicklaus of the U.S. tees off during the ceremonial start on the first day of play at the 2019 Master golf tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, U.S., April 11, 2019. That's because the 43-year-old's triumph at the Augusta National earned them a whopping $1.2 million (£916,000).

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.

After ranking no harder than the 10th most difficult hole the first three days, the 12th was the hardest hole Sunday, with nine double bogeys and a 3.385 stroke average.

"We are still doing well overall with wagers involving Tiger", Jeff Sherman, vice president of risk at Westgate SuperBook, said in an email.

"I think 18 is a whole lot closer than people think", Brooks Koepka said.

The golfing champion's game suffered after he went through four different back surgeries and four different knee surgeries. "I mean, honestly, it's only been a few hours out of winning the tournament", Woods said.

"I'm just ecstatic for golf and I'm ecstatic for Tiger, " Johnson said. Just the opposite of past year when hardly anyone was a Patrick Reed fan when he won, it seemed EVERYONE was a Tiger fan on Sunday.

Williams, 37, took to Twitter Sunday to voice her support for the 15-time major championship victor. "I couldn't walk, I couldn't sit, I couldn't lay down, I really couldn't do much of anything", he told reporters.

Woods is now three short of the gold standard - 18 majors - set by Nicklaus. Sports commentators argued that his victory was the greatest comeback in the history of sports. But I had a good feeling that the way I was [playing] that I was going to be in the mix.

Tournament officials were eagerly touting the moment:"No man in golf has ever been the subject of more interest or speculation than has Tiger Woods". Woods famously embraced his late father Earl after winning his first Masters in 1997. The Betfair Sportsbook rate him at just 6/4 to win at least one more this year, 10/1 to win at least two more, and 50/1 to complete a quite astonishing grand slam. Both times, though, he was far enough right to get lucky and be afforded a clear shot at the green-albeit a frighteningly narrow gap in the trees in the final round. The 14 years between Masters' victories was a record, surpassing the 11-year span between two of Nicklaus' wins. When the coda came laced with heavy themes of redemption, aging and family, it was even better than many of us could have written. "They definitely beat us today, and hopefully they'll come back".

Still, no matter what obstacles his health put in his path, Woods said he was still confident that he would be on top again.

He admits he struggled with everyday tasks such as getting out of bed, driving and taking his kids to school, and is widely reported to have confided at the pre-Masters Champions Dinner a couple of years ago: "I'm done".
