All eyes on Woods, Molinari as Masters heads to stormy end

Molinari sits alone atop The Masters leaderboard at 13-under-par

Francesco Molinari gives an honest assessment of his performance, and speaks about Tigers' 2019 Masters win.

As Tiger put the famous green jacket back on, a punter was scooping up piles of greenbacks.

Those errors left him too far back to prevent Woods claiming a remarkable fifth Masters victory and a 15th major championship, with Molinari limping home in 74 to finish two shots off the pace on 11 under par.

Woods defeated fellow golfers Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffle, and Brooks Koepeka by one stroke each, though it was just one part of a very dramatic Sunday - one that included tee times being moved ahead due to the threat of severe weather coming later this evening in Augusta.

A major betting firm has taken a major hit after a gambler bet big on Tiger Woods winning the Masters.

The victory also marked the first time Woods had reached the winner's circle at major without leading after 54 holes.

Julian Assange: Sweden considers reviving rape inquiry
On Thursday, UK police finally arrested him at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London , where he has spent the last seven years. Assange denies the Swedish allegations, which have a limitation period that expires in August 2020.

"I don't know if there are words - I'm sure he's ecstatic about it", Koepka said.

Woods served notice he had returned to form by contending last year at the British Open and PGA before snapping a five-year title drought by capturing the Tour Championship.

When his final putt disappeared into the cup, Woods delivered one of his trademark fist pumps then raised both arms in the air screaming in absolute delight as the crowd chanted, "Tiger, Tiger, Tiger".

Paired together in the final round of last year's The Open Championship, won by the Italian at Carnoustie, Molinari and Woods found themselves in the last group again battling for a major title.

The 43-year-old Woods started Sunday's final round joint second with fellow American Tony Finau, while Molinari was the man to catch, starting the day at 13-under 203.

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.
