And speaking after The Masters win, Woods referenced The Open as a turning point for him.

The stormy weather will provide an ominous backdrop for Woods, Molinari and Finau in a hugely anticipated showdown that has even attracted the attention of United States president Donald Trump.

After a day of deafening roars, Woods was overcome with emotion given his daughter, Sam, and son, Charlie, were standing beside the 18th green.

Tiger Woods has bounced back from a 10-year lean spell to win the US Golf Masters at Augusta.

"To have my kids there, it's come full circle; my dad was here (when I won) in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids here". "It will be up there with one of the hardest I've had to win because of what has transpired in the last couple of years".

Woods fired a final-round two-under par 70 to finish on 13-under 275 for a one-shot victory to capture a $2.07 million (€1.82 million) top prize and the green jacket symbolizing Masters supremacy.

"It's overwhelming just because I was very lucky just to be playing again", added in Butler Cabin. It is also Tiger's 22nd appearance at the championship tournament.

"My mum was here and she was here in 97 as well".

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.

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.

It is said the Masters does not truly begin until the back nine on Sunday and that held true as Woods and Molinari parred the ninth to head into the turn with everything to play for. But on Sunday it was Molinari who slipped up, with the 36-year-old from Turin finding the water at the 12th and 15th.
