William Hill US will make their single biggest payout on a golf bet after the punter put $125,66 on Woods to win at Augusta, 11 years after his last major victory.

"It was just fantastic to have Sam and Charlie here for the first time", he said. "I could barely walk".

"I'm pretty comfortable being in, being up there on the leaderboard in a major come Sunday", said Koepka, whose roller-coaster round included an eagle, five birdies and four bogeys.

It was reminiscent of an embrace that Tiger shared with his late father, Earl, 22 years ago after he won his first title at Augusta.

"My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids there", he said.

Mere minutes after Tiger Woods won the 2019 Masters for his 15th major victory, Nike was ready to celebrate.

To Tiger Woods the joyous scene by the 18th green confirmed that his career, if not his life, has come "full circle". I believe the way I prepare for tournaments is the best way. I really couldn't so much of anything.

Racing to finish before an oncoming thunderstorm, players created their own electric atmosphere, spectators roaring repeatedly for sensational shotmaking on one of golf's iconic stages.

Brooks Koepka, one of four players from the final two groups who hit into the water on No. 12, rallied with an eagle on the 13th, narrowly missed another eagle on the 15th and was the last player with a chance.

An all-American trio of three-time major victor Brooks Koepka, world number two Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele shared second on 276.

Japanese court extends Nissan ex-chair Ghosn's detention until April 22
On Thursday, Ghosn's wife Carole, who had left for France after Ghosn's latest arrest, returned for questioning in a Tokyo court. Ghosn's almost two decades of leadership of the Japanese automaker came to a sudden end after his initial arrest in November .

It is Woods' first major championship since 2008 and the 15th of his unbelievable career, which puts him three away from Jack Nicklaus' record of 18.

"A big "well done" from me to TigerWoods!"

"I couldn't be more happy and excited, I'm kind of at a loss for words".

The reigning British Open champion had seemed impervious to the pressure of leading the final round of a major championship, even with Tiger Woods breathing down his neck.

"I was very fortunate to be given another chance to do something that I love to do", Woods said. Right now it's a little soon.

"We're on 14 and I said, 'Let's get to 15.' You can't be on 14 and thinking about 18", LaCava said. "I'm sure he's home in West Palm (Beach, Florida) just chilling and watching".

As his comeback season in 2018 progressed, Woods contended in two majors and finally won again, at the US PGA Tour Championship in September. When his tap-in bogey settled in the cup for a one-shot win, Woods threw up his arms in triumph, igniting chants of "Tiger Tiger".

"It's overwhelming because what has transpired".

"All these different scenarios keep flying around".

Now the comeback is truly complete.
