Brilliant Woods Claims 15th Major Title

Tiger Woods capped his remarkable comeback from serious injury with victory at The Masters on Sunday.

As his rivals made mistakes over the closing stretch, the 43-year-old seized control of the tournament with a run of three birdies in four holes.

From a five-way tie for the lead, Woods suddenly found himself two shots clear after a brilliant tee-shot at the par-three 16th left him with a simple tap-in for birdie.

His fifth Masters title was his 15th major victory in all and his first in 11 years.

He had signalled his return to competitiveness last year with strong performances at both The Open and the PGA Championship, before winning the season-ending Tour Championship, and he was a 14/1* pre-tournament chance to win at Augusta.

On the back of his win in Georgia, several bookmakers have made him the favourite to win July’s Open Championship, with Ladbrokes and Coral quoting best odds of 10/1* (as short as 6/1 elsewhere). Woods has won three Open titles, with the most recent coming at Royal Liverpool back in 2006.
