  • Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Molinari scrambled hard on the front nine to maintain his overnight lead, making a number of clutch up-and-downs for par while hitting back from his first bogey in 50 holes at the seventh with a birdie at the eighth.

Ending an 11-year major drought, the 43-year-old American superstar - who underwent spinal fusion in 2017 fearing chronic back pain would deny him life's simple joys much less golf wins - seized his first major title since the 2008 US Open.

Due to an ominous weather forecast, golfers will go off from the first and 10th tees in threesomes and Koepka will be followed around the course by the final grouping of Molinari, Tiger Woods and Tony Finau. Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today?

"I didn't do it at Tampa, I didn't do it at The Open Championship, I was a little better at the PGA, but still I didn't win".

"To have my kids there, it's come full circle; my dad was here (when I won) in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids here. I'm at a loss for words really".

One step closer to football season! Browns release preseason schedule
Apart from the game that will be on national TV, the exact times and dates of the other three games are still to be determined. The Rams caught somewhat of a break with only one of their preseason opponents also being on their regular-season schedule.


Woods also captured his 15th career major crown, leaving him three behind Jack Nicklaus's record 18.

"A big well done from me to Tiger", Nicklaus told telecaster CBS. 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter.

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.

Although it is the first major Woods has won starting a final round behind the lead, he showed his once-dominant self when he took the outright lead with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th and never looked back.

Meanwhile, Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, (73, six under), Marc Leishman (75, one over) and Cameron Smith (77, two over) rounded out the Australian contingent.
