CP NewsAlert: Tiger Woods captures fifth Masters golf title

Tiger Woods walks to the 12th hole during the second round for the Masters on Friday in Augusta Ga

Tiger Woods claimed his fifth Masters title this evening after a remarkable day of golf in the year's first major.

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

But in the mix in the last day of the Masters, Woods drew in casual golf fans from all over the globe to tune in to see if he could do it, with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola openly admitting he might watch the tournament over Liverpool-Chelsea.

The Masters has not utilized a two-tee start since the first two rounds in 2005.

Woods now has 15 major titles overall, just three behind Jack Nicklaus' record of 18.

He estimates that each fairing costs approximately $6 million, which equates to about 10 percent of the cost of a Falcon 9 launch. And even before that point, SpaceX was already celebrating the successful landing of Falcon Heavy's three individual boosters.

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

As is tradition, last year's champion, Patrick Reed, put the jacket on Ryder Cup team-mate Woods and uttered "Yea buddy!" as he did so.

Woods, 43, overturned a two-shot deficit heading into the final round at Augusta National as he carded a two under score of 70 to finish on 13 under par overall - one shot ahead of the chasing trio of Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele.

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.
