  • Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Tiger Woods, one of the world's best golfers, captured his fifth Masters championship Sunday, his 15th major professional victory after an 11-year drought from winning the sport's biggest tournaments.

"I'm a little hoarse from yelling", said Woods, whose last Masters win came back in 2005. All of a sudden I had the lead.

After a day of deafening roars, Woods was overcome with emotion given his daughter, Sam, and son, Charlie, were standing beside the 18th green.

"My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids here", he added.

"It will be up there with one of the hardest with all I've had to win because of what transpired in the last couple of years", added Woods.

"My mum was here and she was here in 97 as well".

Professionally, it's an impressive comeback for sure after Woods' was forced to undergo surgeries for back and leg injuries that almost ended his career.

How To Change Your PSN ID
Q: Will all PS4 games released in the future support the feature? PlayStation users have been begging for the name change feature. Sony has announced that its long-requested PSN ID change feature is finally seeing a release on PlayStation 4 today.

All those moments built to Sunday, when Woods was once again his old familiar dominating self.

After battling to overhaul 54-hole leader Francesco Molinari of Italy, Woods birdied the par-5 13 to join a lead pack of five at 12-under.

They will tee off at 9:20 am ET (1320 GMT) as officials pushed up start times in a desperate bid to get the season's first major across the finish line before storms hit.

Woods and Molinari, who were paired together in the final round of last year's British Open won by the Italian, will once again be in the last group.

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. 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter.

The 43-year-old has capped off a remarkable return to golf's top echelons following persistent back problems and troubles in his personal life, which almost led him to an early retirement from the sport he adores.
