Woods began the day two shots off the pace and briefly trailed Francesco Molinari by three strokes early in the round, only to recover and card a two-under 70 to claim a one-shot victory.

The 43-year-old rolled in an eight-footer at the third and recovered from back-to-back birdies from the fourth to make a tap-in birdie at the seventh and pick up a shot at the par-five next.

Woods' previous Masters wins came in 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005

Woods missed the 10th green on his way to beginning the back nine with a bogey, although found himself in a share of the advantage when Molinari found water off the 12th tee and double-bogeyed.

The former world No 1 moved ahead with two-putt birdies at the 13th and 15th and gave himself a two-shot cushion after almost holing his tee shot at the par-three 16th.

Woods took a two-shot cushion onto the par-four last, where a tap-in bogey was enough to claim a first major victory since 2008 and a fifth Masters title.
