Tiger Woods: Gambler wins more than $1 million thanks to Masters victory

Adjust Comment Print

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.

Even a bogey at the last could not wipe the huge grin off Tiger's face as he basked in the glory of victory on the grandest stage, having feared he would never play again following a series of troublesome back injuries.

"It was probably a 9-iron yardage but I didn't want the wind to gust and to get the ball too much and I just didn't hit it hard enough", Molinari explained. "I'm at a loss for words really". Here, 22 years later, he hugged his children. When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

His dream of surpassing Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major victories appeared over but Sunday threw up one of sport's greatest stories ever told and gives him a glimmer of hope of becoming golf's most decorated player in history.

Newcastle boss Benitez delighted with matchwinner Ayoze Perez
Perez wasted a good chance to double Newcastle's lead early in the second half when he volleyed wide from Rondon's cross. That's what happened in my second season here, we were relegated with a great team.

Tiger Woods, 43, celebrated his huge Masters tournament win on April 14 by running into the arms of his 10-year-old son Charlie.

"It's overwhelming just because I was very lucky just to be playing again", added in Butler Cabin.

"I missed a couple of years of playing this great tournament, now to be winning it". The two double bogeys ended his Green Jacket bid.

All eyes were on overnight leader Francesco Molinari, who led by two shots, Woods and the weather when play began as the race for the Green Jacket turned into a final sprint with the forecast predicting rain and thunderstorms. I am so happy for him and for the game of golf.
