- The comeback is complete.

Augusta National moved the final round to Sunday morning due to storms expected to arrive in the afternoon, when leaders would typically be battling for the title.

A historic Masters victory by Tiger Woods on Sunday was popular with nearly everyone but bookmakers.

While Tiger was slipping on the green jacket and celebrating his fifth career title at The Masters earlier today, sportsbooks around the world were busy counting their losses, with some of them reportedly suffering their biggest loss ever.

Brooks Koepka relinquished his share of the Masters lead on Saturday but the American is not about to panic given the increased self-belief that helped him bag two of the last three majors.

Pep Guardiola defends Manchester City tactics in Tottenham defeat
The way Liverpool have performed this season, this would be a far bigger achievement this year to win the league, than last year. After Palace, City host Tottenham twice in four days in the second leg of their Champions League tie and the Premier League.

"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple years ago", said Woods.

In his first 14 major victories, Woods either led or was tied for the lead heading into the final round. Prior to Sunday, Woods hadn't won a major championship since his victory at the USA open in 2008.

After Sunday's victory, Woods trails only the legendary Jack Nicklaus, who has 18 career major titles.

Nicklaus, 23-times tennis grand slam victor Serena Williams, Super Bowl champion Tom Brady also applauded the victory on Twitter while swimmer Michael Phelps, the victor of a record 23 Olympic gold medals, was at Augusta National to cheer Woods on. "I'm aware that it's not going to be easy tomorrow". It also ends a almost 11-year major tournament drought for Woods, who last captured one back in 2008 at the US Open. He won the U.S. Open in 2017 as well.
