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

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Due to the potential for severe weather on Sunday afternoon, Masters officials have adjusted the tee times for the final round.

"My dad [Earl] was here in 1997 when I won [the Masters for the first time]".

Woods has now gone even better, winning his fifth green jacket amid emotional scenes on Sunday at Augusta, as well as earning praise from as far and wide as golf-mad US President Donald Trump, tennis great Serena Williams, and National Football League legend Tom Brady.

At 43 years old, and having had multiple back surgeries, it appeared as though Wood's last triumph at a major would be the 2008 U.S. Open.

Can Tiger Woods still win the Masters at 43?
But after winning the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February, it seems a career grand slam may still be in reach since this year's U.S. The final group of the day, meanwhile, includes 2015 Masters victor Jordan Spieth, Brooks Koepka and England's Paul Casey.

Woods also captured his 15th career major crown, leaving him three behind Jack Nicklaus's record 18.

Woods shot a final round of two under par 70 to finish at 13 under, one stroke clear of Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka. Things turned around in 2018, with a win at the Tour Championship his first victory on tour in five years. Impossibly, ridiculously, Tiger Woods is back on top in golf again, with his fused back, his pile of lost years and his talent somehow back from the dead.

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.
