Woods and Molinari set for back-nine Masters showdown

Phil Mickelson hits a drive on the ninth hole during the second round for the Masters golf tournament Friday

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

As Tiger put the famous green jacket back on, a punter was scooping up piles of greenbacks.

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.

William Hill have had to shell out after Tiger Woods' shock, which is his first major championship victory in more than a decade.

Woods then drove the green in two at the par-5 15 and tapped in for birdie to seize the lead alone at 13-under par then sank a four-foot birdie putt at the par-3 16 to stretch his advantage to two shots with two holes remaining.

Woods showed he still had the game to compete with the world's best when he triumphed in last year's Tour Championship, his first victory of any kind since 2013.

Woods, one shy of matching Nicklaus for the most career Masters wins, won his 81 career US PGA victory, one shy of the all-time record held by Sam Snead.

Australia's Jason Day (67) was tied fifth at 11 under alongside 54-hole leader Francesco Molinari, Webb Simpson (70) and Tony Finau (72).

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

Lurking one shot further back is two-times defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who will head off in the company of Webb Simpson and Englishman Ian Poulter, both four off the pace.

Molinari had played near flawless golf through the first three rounds, carding a single bogey, but on Sunday a bogey along with the two doubles during a miserable final round of two-over 74 left him two back of the victor.

Playing in just his second Masters, the 29-year-old has displayed plenty of guts to go along with some superb form.
