Tiger Woods wins 15th major title with mighty comeback

"It's insane to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15th major is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old", the ad read, before showing a video of Woods as a child saying, "I'm gonna beat Jack Nicklaus". He hugged his mother, Kultida Woods, his two children, daughter Sam and son Charlie, and other well-wishers as he headed to the clubhouse to sign his scorecard. With them was Woods' girlfriend, Erica Herman.

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. "I'm so happy for him and for the game of golf this is so fantastic". There was a lot of times when I really couldn't move, and so that in itself is hard. "I was just trying to plod my way around all day then all of a sudden I had the lead".

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.

"My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids there", he said. "Prior to comeback, they only knew that golf caused me a lot of pain".

"But I probably should have gone middle of the green and just wait for the last three holes to try and make something happen there".

How did Thursday's coup unfold? New demonstrations broke out Thursday afternoon in the capital, Khartoum. His downfall followed months of unrest which began in December over the rising cost of living.

It has to go down as one of golf's greatest victories and hopefully there are at least a few more to come.

Eventually, however, the procedure proved a success, Woods saying it "gave me a chance at having a normal life".

"Last year I was just very lucky to be playing again". At that time, he thought his career is over.

"You want to play against the best to ever play", Koepka said. "That's what he always taught me to do, and that's what I just kept telling myself out there: just putt to the picture". I'm starting to have a little pop on the bat out there, which was good to see. It's one of the hardest I've ever had to win. He might be wearing a certain green jacket. Augusta National's signature hole at the heart of Amen Corner had the leaderboard spinning with Koepka, Tony Finau and Ian Poulter all ending up in the murky waters of Rae's Creek.
