Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

13 years since his last win at Augusta, Woods turned back the clock to win his first major since the 2008 US Open to complete a remarkable comeback following several back surgeries.

However, dressed in his traditional final-round red shirt, Woods emerged from a back-nine showdown with two-time major victor Molinari to win his fifth Masters title and 15th major of a storied career that moves him three behind Jack Nicklaus' record haul of 18.

"I was just trying to plod my way through the course all day".

The victory came 14 years after winning his last Green Jacket and prompted emotional scenes as Woods embraced his mother Kultida, and his children Sam and Charlie after holing a putt on the last to move to 15 major titles, within three of all-time great Jack Nicklaus.

Tiger Woods has won a fifth Masters.

"To have my kids there was [wonderful], I've come full circle".

Woods shot a final round of two under par 70 to finish at 13 under, one stroke clear of Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka.

"I'm a little hoarse from yelling", Woods said after the round.

The years since his last major victory have been drama-filled for Woods.

They say the Masters starts on the second nine on Sunday, and this year didn't disappoint, especially with the arrival of the promised rain.

Woods held a share of the lead for stretches during the final round but didn't take the outright lead until a birdie at the 15th hole. But on Sunday it was Molinari who slipped up, with the 36-year-old from Turin finding the water at the 12th and 15th.
