A tradition unlike any other.

Tiger Woods, sporting his classic red shirt, black pants Sunday look, shot 2 under par for the day, 13 under overall, to win his first Masters Tournament since 2005.

On a day featuring Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas acing the 16th hole, and having a moment on the back nine with five different golfers holding a share of the lead, it was Woods who came out on top.

Francesco Molinari was the leader at 13 under heading into the day, but double bogeys on the 12th and 15th holes proved to be too much to overcome for the Italian, as he finished at 11 under. Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele also had a share of the lead on Sunday, and ended in a three-way tie for second place.

With this win, Woods, 43, becomes the second-oldest champion in Masters history behind Jack Nicklaus, who won at 46-years old. It is also his 15th overall major championship win, and 5th at Augusta National.
