A fifth green jacket, his first major win in 11 years; a story that the world had resigning itself to never seeing again.

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

When Schauffele, who started the day five strokes off the lead of Francesco Molinari, birdied the 14th and 15th holes, he surged into a tie for the lead at 12 under par.

Tiger Woods won his 15th major this past weekend, prevailing at The Masters for the first time since 2005.

"I played exactly how I wanted to play", said Brooks Koepka, one of those who found the creek and double-bogeyed the hole on the way to a final-round 70 to finish 12 under, a shot back and in a three-way tie for second.

Fellow golfers and former greats of the game were also quick to hail Woods' achievement in returning to the summit of the sport after multiple surgeries and a string of off-course problems since his 14th major win at the 2008 US Open. Woods has won 15 major championships, and his win Sunday renewed talk of him reaching Jack Nicklaus' records of six Masters titles and 18 major championships as a pro.

Woods has battled back issues in the past, but Watson said Woods can continue to be successful if he is feeling well. "It's what I watched as a kid".

"I don't know if he's anxious or not".

'Next year it won't be a course where I have never played well before, I'll have a few good rounds under my belt. He lost his health to four back surgeries that left him unable to get out of bed, much less swing a club, and he went two years without even playing a major.

I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago.

"It's insane to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15th major is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old", the ad states.

That is how Tiger Woods attempted to describe an extraordinary Sunday. "I could barely walk".

"Congratulations to @TigerWoods", tweeted Trump, who earlier this year played golf with Woods. I couldn't sit. Couldn't lay down. "There was a lot of times when I really couldn't move and so that in itself is hard".

"Luckily I've had the procedure where that's no longer the case and I can do this again".

A collector struck at the ideal time to own a piece of Tiger Woods history, winning an auction Saturday to own Woods' backup putter from 2000.

"To have the opportunity to come back like this it is probably one of the biggest wins I've ever had for sure because of it". Woods sprayed his shot well right of the fairway - but was extremely fortunate to have a sightline to the green.

"I just was able to be lucky enough and fortunate enough to be able to do this again".
