The Masters: Francesco Molinari reflects on where it went wrong at Augusta

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Winning a fifth Masters title, and his first since 2005, cemented a fairytale comeback to the pinnacle of golf for Woods, whose career imploded after a 2009 sex scandal and nagging knee and back injuries that required a total of seven surgeries.

On a day when Augusta National, which had been softened by rain earlier in the week, was yielding low scores Koepka could only muster a three-under-par 69 that left him alone in fourth place and three shots back of leader Francesco Molinari.

Paired together in the final round of last year's British Open, won by the Italian at Carnoustie, Woods will be hoping for a different outcome at Augusta National as he bids to end an 11-year major drought by claiming a fifth Green Jacket. After Tiger made back-to-back birdies on No. 15 and 16, he gained a two-shot advantage over Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka.

"At the previous champions dinner I was really struggling and missed a couple of years playing in this great tournament and now be champion with 22 years between the wins".

Woods was helped into the green jacket by last year's victor Patrick Reed. It was his first major golf tournament win in over a decade, and it started social media buzzing about what the world was like the last time Woods wore the green jacket.

"I was as patient as I've been in a number of years out there", Woods said.

Liverpool Vs Chelsea Preview
Few Liverpool players remain from that game and Klopp is adamant that past failures will be a burden for this generation. Chelsea will once again look to spoil their party on the back of those that were there the first time.

Woods now has 15 major titles overall, just three behind Jack Nicklaus' record of 18. Coming up 18 I was just trying to make a five. "I am so happy for him and for the game of golf".

"It was obviously close to the branches of the tree and we never know, probably if it doesn't clip the branch it might go close to the hole", he said.

"I think the kids are starting to understand how much this game means to me, and some of the things I've done in the game", Woods said.

Admitting he was extremely achy from the hard-fought battle of the week, Woods said, "I definitely let it all go today, and I ramped up the speed".

Even with the subsequent double bogey, Molinari was still in the hunt until a poorly played 15th hole, compounded by a bit of bad luck, finally sunk him. That for years has stood as Augusta's defining moment.
