Woods wins Masters to claim first major in 11 years

	 		CP NewsAlert Tiger Woods captures fifth Masters golf title				Apr 14 2019

Woods completed sport's greatest comeback on the weekend after winning his fifth Green Jacket - his first major win since all the way back in 2008 at the US Open.

National Basketball Association stars LeBron James and Steph Curry also expressed their admiration, although Curry hoped for a little more from Woods as a result of him claiming a fifth green jacket.

This is the first time Woods has ever come from behind on the final day to win a major championship, leaving him three behind Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major titles. Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today? When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

The Italian looked to have the tournament under control around the turn until he suddenly opened the door for Tiger Woods and the chasing pack when he dumped his tee shot into the water at the short 12th and, after getting one shot back at 13, his pitch at the 15th clipped a tree and landed in the middle of the pond as he carded his second double-bogey in four holes.

The Lakers And Luke Walton Have Agreed To Mutually Part Ways
Walton posted an incredible 39-4 record as a fill-in for Kerr, and even took home NBA Coach of the Month honors during his time. Following Walton's departure from the Lakers, Kerr shared his thoughts on his former understudy.

Woods showed he still had the game to compete with the world's best when he triumphed in last year's Tour Championship, his first victory of any kind since 2013. Brooks Koepka, Ian Poulter, Franceso Molinari and Tony Finau all made double bogey, while overnight leader Molinari threw in a double bogey seven at the 15th for good measure.

In a desperate attempt to get the season's first major across the finish line before the storm hit, officials pushed up start times and sent golfers off in threesomes from both the first and 10th tees.

Yes, he's a major champion again.

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. 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter.
