Tiger Roars to Augusta Victory

Tiger Woods has achieved one of the greatest comebacks in the history of sport by winning the Masters at Augusta.

11 years after his last major title, and following 4 back surgeries, Woods has returned to win his 5th Green Jacket, 22 years after his first.

The 43 year old carded a 2 under par round of 70 for a 1 shot win over Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele.

Overnight leader Francesco Molinari found the water on holes 12 and 15 to fall out of contention.

Woods now has 15 major titles, 3 short of the record held by Jack Nicklaus.

Rory McIlroy carded a final round 68 for a tournament total of 5 under par.
