Tiger Woods completed one of the greatest comebacks in sports history yesterday when he defied all the odds to win the 2019 Masters at Augusta.
Woods picked up his fifth green jacket yesterday with his last win at golf’s most famous event coming way back in 2005.
The win marked the 15th major of his career and his first in 11-years, his last coming in the 2008 US Open. The 43-year-old now sits just three wins behind the legendary Jack Nicklaus in golf’s all-time major wins.
Here are some of our favourite images from a historic day at Augusta.
