BREAKING NEWS: Tiger Woods wins the Masters

Tiger Woods ended a major drought stretching back to 2008 and completed the most extraordinary comeback from injury by claiming a one-shot victory at the Masters on Sunday.

Woods, who expressed doubts over whether he would play professional golf again only 19 months ago, secured his fifth green jacket with a closing round of 70 to finish on 13 under, as overnight leader Francesco Molinari dramatically faltered with two double-bogeys on Augusta’s back nine.

The tension was unbelievable as the tournament neared a conclusion, with five players sharing the lead at 12 under before Woods birdied the 15th to pull clear.

A stunning tee shot to the next hole ensured the 43-year-old picked up another shot and he duly secured his 15th major title, 14 years on from his last win at Augusta.
