The victory also marked the first time Woods had reached the winner's circle at major without leading after 54 holes and broke Gary Player's record (13 years) for the longest gap between Masters wins.

Schauffele had just put the finishing touches on a final-round 68 to finish tied for second place at the Masters, albeit a shot behind victor Tiger Woods who electrified Augusta National on his way to his 15 major championship. Among the four majors, the Masters is second in purse behind the U.S. Open ($12 million), but ahead of the PGA Championship ($11 million) and the Open Championship ($10.5 million). In 2017, he underwent a spinal fusion, his fourth back surgery, with hopes of alleviating the pain.

Both presidents were united in their admiration of Tiger Woods, the golfing phenomenon who returned to the top of the sporting world by winning the Masters on Sunday.

Woods has said for the past couple of years that his biggest motivation was to win a major in front of his children now that they're old enough to understand the magnitude of the moments. "I know I screamed".

He now has 15 major titles to his name, second only to golf great Jack Nicklaus, who has won 18.

And then Molinari hit his 8-iron tee shot into Rae's Creek on the 12th, took double bogey and everything changed. I was close a year ago in the majors.

"I've never had an ace, ever, unfortunately", DeChambeau said. With the final group still in the 15th fairway, there was a five-way tie for the lead. It's not just the tall pines and the close proximity of numerous holes that make the sound reverberate all over the course. "I was really hoping it would go in". "I learned from those, and was able to seal the deal today".

As the final round of the tournament got off to an early start Sunday morning due to bad weather, it wasn't clear that Woods would come back from two strokes behind, but he did.
