Two years ago he didn't know if he would play golf again, now Tiger Woods has ended an 11 year major drought to claim his fifth US Masters title after an incredible final round at Augusta.

It marks his 15th major title and his first since 2008.

Woods defeated fellow golfers Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffle, and Brooks Koepeka by one stroke each, though it was just one part of a very dramatic Sunday - one that included tee times being moved ahead due to the threat of severe weather coming later this evening in Augusta.

Even a bogey at the last could not wipe the huge grin off Tiger's face as he basked in the glory of victory on the grandest stage, having feared he would never play again following a series of troublesome back injuries.

After a day of deafening roars, Woods was overcome with emotion given his daughter, Sam, and son, Charlie, were standing beside the 18th green.

That was thought to have been in response to her request to investigate possible crimes committed by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The US has said that it would not cooperate with the ICC and revoked Bensouda's visa to enter the country.

"The previous champions' dinner I was really struggling".

Tiger Woods celebrates after sinking his putt to win the Masters.

"A big "well done" from me to TigerWoods!" When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

The 43-year-old's emotions ran riot on the 18th green as he exploded into frenzied celebrations with his caddie, his children and his support team before he signed for a closing two-under 70 which confirmed a winning score of 13 under par. It could have gone so many different ways, and I just kept hanging in there until the last couple of holes.

"There are so many different things that can happen on the back nine on Sunday", he added. I am so happy for him and for the game of golf.
