The Twitter world goes wild about Tiger Woods’ fifth Masters win

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods claims 5th US Masters title

Entering Sunday's final day of play, Woods had been tied for second place with Tony Finau, but the 43-year-old Stanford University grad outplayed everybody down the stretch including leader Francesco Molinari, who suffered notably bad luck and a bit of a meltdown on two holes on the back nine that ended up leaving enough of an opening for Woods to make his move.

"I'm done" has become "I won".

The star explained that he peaked at the ideal time at Augusta, and referenced his inability to hold onto leads at past tournaments.

"Maybe next time it will be better for me, but it was nice to be out with him". Tiger Woods has his fifth Masters title.

"I'm a little hoarse from yelling", a tearful Woods said before the green jacket presentation in the Butler Cabin.

"That win at East Lake was a big confidence-booster for me because I had come close previous year a couple times, but still had to get it across the finish line, and I didn't quite do it", he told Sky Sports.

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

"The Tour Championship is obviously the hottest 30 guys for the year, so to be able to do that against Rory and Rosey there gave me a lot of confidence going into this year". "I was just trying to plod my way around all day then all of a sudden I had the lead". His tally of 18 major titles was never going. "I'm at a loss for words really".

"My short game's been there". When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed. My hands were good.

"It's overwhelming just because I was very lucky just to be playing again", added in Butler Cabin.

Just off the 18 green, Woods hugged his mother as he had his late father Earl in 1997 and held his children, his back more than up to the task as the crowd chanted his name, a rare tribute, and rivals congratulated him as he entered the clubhouse.
