The Twitter world goes wild about Tiger Woods’ fifth Masters win

The leading group will tee off at 9.20am local time on Sunday due to thunderstorm fears

It's the first time Woods has won a major when he didn't hold the 54-hole lead, and sets a new record for the longest gap between Masters victories.

A United States gambler was probably as excited as Tiger Woods over his victory at the Masters.

Tiger Woods has bounced back from a 10-year lean spell to win the US Golf Masters at Augusta.

Racing to finish before an oncoming thunderstorm, players created their own electric atmosphere, spectators roaring repeatedly for sensational shotmaking on one of golf's iconic stages at Augusta National, where Woods won his first major title in 1997.

"I was just trying to plod my way along the golf course all day", said Woods.

"I think we picked the right shot and just didn't hit it hard enough, as simple as that". I know that I made a few mistakes the last couple tournaments, but it just felt like it was there.

"To have my kids there - it's come full circle".

Woods served notice he had returned to form by contending last year at the British Open and PGA before snapping a five-year title drought by capturing the Tour Championship.

A 15th major success was secured in sensational fashion on Sunday as Woods overhauled Francesco Molinari's two-shot overnight lead to prevail by one stroke.

Lurking one shot further back is two-times defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who will head off in the company of Webb Simpson and Englishman Ian Poulter, both four off the pace.

The 43-year-old Woods started Sunday's final round joint second with fellow American Tony Finau, while Molinari was the man to catch, starting the day at 13-under 203. The two double bogeys ended his Green Jacket bid.

Molinari had played near flawless golf through the first three rounds, carding a single bogey, but on Sunday a bogey along with the two doubles during a miserable final round of two-over 74 left him two back of the victor.
