He ended last season by winning the Tour Championship and showed signs of a breakthrough at the majors by being a title contender at last year's British Open, where he led in the final round, and PGA Championship, where he finished runner-up. "So, you know, he's got me shaking in my boots, guys".

The ad ends with, "I'm gonna beat Jack Nicklaus". "I'm so happy for him and for the game of golf this is so fantastic".

Woods was paired with Molinari in the final grouping of last year's British Open, which Molinari won.

Now, he's back on top with his first green jacket at Augusta National since 2005. After his win, they were filmed hugging him.

Facebook's Looking to Bring Messaging Back into the Main App
In brief: Remember when you could chat to friends in the main Facebook app without having to load Messenger? Yeah, unfortunately. According to a report in Engadget Friday, App researcher Jane Manchun Wong has spotted the feature in the works.

Woods, one shy of matching Nicklaus for the most career Masters wins, won his 81 career US PGA victory, one shy of the all-time record held by Sam Snead.

It completes a fairytale comeback to the pinnacle of golf for Woods, whose career imploded after a 2009 sex scandal before unraveling amid injuries and personal problems.

Woods enters Sunday tied for second on the leaderboard at 11-under par through three rounds, which is just two strokes behind Italy's Francesco Molinari (-13). In 18 events, he made more than $5.4 million. But the Italian self-destructed on the back side, dunking two balls in the water on the way to double-bogeys at the 12th and 15th holes. Due to inclement weather expected in the afternoon, the iconic post-round celebration of the Masters victor has been nixed in part because officials want to expedite gate closures.

As tradition goes at the green jacket ceremony, the victor of last year's Masters - in this case, Patrick Reed - will bestow the newest green jacket onto the back of this year's victor.
