Punter scores record win on Tiger Woods' Masters victory

Open this

Some 3,955 days after his last major championship victory, Woods scored a win of global importance here at the Augusta National club, where his dominance was broken 14 years ago, and where for a while he was sliding towards honorary starter status.

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

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.

William Hill have had to shell out after Tiger Woods' shock, which is his first major championship victory in more than a decade. Coming up 18 I was just trying to make a five.

Woods, one shy of matching Nicklaus for the most career Masters wins, won his 81 career US PGA victory, one shy of the all-time record held by Sam Snead. When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

"To have my kids there, it's come full circle; my dad was here (when I won) in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids here".

Woods, Molinari, Xander Schauffele, Brooks Kopeka and Dustin Johnson with Australian Jason Day in the clubhouse on 11-under and Patrick Cantlay, who also hit 12-under, foiled by bogeys at 16 and 17.

Written off as too old and too beaten up from four back surgeries and multiple knee operations, Woods underwent a back fusion in 2017 and slowly returned to form.

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. 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter.

Koepka has said all week he was focused on his own game and not worrying about what anyone else is doing, but that could prove tough come Sunday with the leaders playing right behind him.
