Tiger Woods reacts to his birdie putt on 15 during the second round of the Masters golf tournament Friday

Woods completed a miracle comeback from back surgery and a turbulent period in his personal life to return to the summit of the sport at Augusta National, claiming his 15th major title, 11 years after his previous triumph.

The victory also marked the first time Woods had reached the winner's circle at major without leading after 54 holes.

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

Impossibly, ridiculously, Tiger Woods is back on top in golf again, with his fused back, his pile of lost years and his talent somehow back from the dead. Tiger Woods has his fifth Masters title. I said, "you know, just keep building on it and let's try to get the mind and body peaking towards Augusta".

"I think we picked the right shot and just didn't hit it hard enough, as simple as that". When I tapped in I don't know what I did, I know I screamed.

Cold front hitting Utah Tuesday will bring rain, snow and strong winds
Cities that will see the most snow include Rapid City, North Platte, Sioux Falls, Minneapolis, La Crosse, and Marquette. Wednesday afternoon through Friday will be about 40 to 50 degrees colder than the temperatures Tuesday afternoon.

He ended last season by winning the Tour Championship and showed signs of a breakthrough at the majors by being a title contender at last year's British Open, where he led in the final round, and PGA Championship, where he finished runner-up.

Francesco Molinari began the day with a two-shot advantage over Woods and Tony Finau.

Starting the final round two shots behind the lead, Woods bogeyed the last but a two-under-par 70 gave him a 13-under-par (275) total on Sunday, with Dustin Johnson (68), Xander Schauffele (68) and Brooks Koepka (70) tied second one shot behind.

Paired together in the final round of last year's The Open Championship, won by the Italian at Carnoustie, Molinari and Woods found themselves in the last group again battling for a major title. 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.
