CP NewsAlert: Tiger Woods captures fifth Masters golf title

So sure are forecasters of risky weather that Augusta National announced that there will be no Green Jacket ceremony on the terrace putting green in order to expedite gate closures and get people off the course. When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

It's the first time Woods has won a major when he didn't hold the 54-hole lead, and sets a new record for the longest gap between Masters victories.

The message alongside the video, reads: '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'.

"I'm a little hoarse from yelling", said Woods, whose last Masters win came back in 2005.

You couldn't help but smile when Woods drained his tournament-clinching putt on 18 for his fifth green jacket and followed it with an emotional celebration with his children and mother.

Trump's GOP allies in Congress are also hedging their bets by continuing to cast doubt on the origins of Mueller's investigation. As more information becomes available, this post will be updated.

Sunday's victory by Tiger was massive in more ways than one.

With Finau also carding a bogey and Koepka dropping a shot at the sixth, Molinari suddenly found himself alone at the top of the leaderboard with a three-shot advantage.

Written off as too old and too beaten up from four back surgeries and multiple knee operations, Woods underwent a back fusion in 2017 and slowly returned to form. "My dad was here in 97 (when he won his first Masters) and now I'm the dad with two kids there".

All eyes were on overnight leader Francesco Molinari, who led by two shots, Woods and the weather when play began as the race for the Green Jacket turned into a final sprint with the forecast predicting rain and thunderstorms.

They will tee off at 9:20 am ET (1320 GMT) as officials pushed up start times in a desperate bid to get the season's first major across the finish line before storms hit. That ball on 12, if it's one yard further left it probably goes in the bunker and the third shot on 15, it could easily not have clipped the tree and sometimes it is your day, sometimes it isn't, but I'm really happy of the way I felt out there.
