Tiger Woods wins Masters to claim first major in 11 years

It was the United States golfing icon's 15th major in all - and fifth win at Augusta - but the first time he has clinched one of golf's big four prizes since 2008.

Nike has released an incredible new advertisement to celebrate Tiger Woods' Masters victory on Sunday, his first green jacket since 2005 and his first major since 2008.

"They were at the Open previous year when I had the lead, made a few mistakes, and cost myself a chance to win".

Moreover, it becomes his first Masters win since 2005 and his first major win since the U.S. Open in 2008.

One fan joyously replied to the video, "Tiger Woods FINALLY EMBRACING HIS SON AFTER A MASTERS WIN". Here, 22 years later, he hugged his children.

"To have my kids there - it's come full circle. My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids there".

Woods held his nerve down the stretch and pounced on crucial errors from long-time leader Francesco Molinari in Sunday's final group, storming to the top of the leaderboard with three birdies in four holes from the 13th and sealing victory with a comfortable one-foot tap-in for bogey.

Written off as too old and too beaten up from four back surgeries and multiple knee operations, Woods underwent a back fusion in 2017 and slowly returned to form.

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.

"There are so many different things that can happen on the back nine on Sunday", he added.
