'Greatest comeback story in sport!' Stars pay tribute to Tiger Woods

Francesco Molinari and Brooks Koepka

Being in the middle of a golf gallery when Tiger Woods is in contention is a insane experience, but the fans, er, patrons, were absolutely nuts Sunday with shouts of "TIGER" rumbling through the Augusta layout every few seconds.

Woods hasn't won a major tournament since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course, and he hasn't won the Masters since 2005, when he donned the green jacket a fourth time.

Bears legends Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs were among those who tipped their figurative helmets.

However, Woods won't get the honor of being part of the iconic green jacket ceremony, which Augusta National cancelled Sunday morning due to concerns over weather.

Woods also can count fans in the music industry, including all three Jonas brothers and a Backstreet Boy.

At Carnoustie it was Woods who stumbled on the back nine while leading. Francesco Molinari, the 54-hole leader, was still up two shots heading into the heart of Amen Corner. When I tapped the putt in - I don't know what I did.

Molinari leads by 2 entering Masters' final round
After a flawless opening round, Koepka had two bogeys and a double in his first six holes on Friday but the twice U.S. Open champion was able to regain his composure, steadying himself with six straight pars from the ninth.

Sunday's win at Augusta National - where Woods won his first major in 1997 - was his 15th time winning a major.

On the par three 12th hole Molinari's ball fell into the water, where he would end up with a double-bogie. The multi-million dollar cut is part of an $11.5 million purse for the tournament, which is up $500,000 from a year ago, when Patrick Reed took home $1.98 million for his first-place finish.

And then it seemed as though practically everyone had a chance, until Woods delivered the key shots at the big moment, just like the old days.

"It hasn't sunk in at all, " Woods said.

FanDuel Group, which ran a refund promotion tied to its fantasy product, said it lost US$2 million (S$2.7 million) when Woods secured his first major victory in more than a decade.

"It means the world to me", he said. "Just to have them there and have them see their Pops win, just like my Pops saw me win here, it's pretty special".
