  • Tiger Woods in the hunt for the lead at the Masters after sinking six birdies on Day 3 at Augusta

Both presidents were united in their admiration of Tiger Woods, the golfing phenomenon who returned to the top of the sporting world by winning the Masters on Sunday.

An all-American trio of three-time major victor Brooks Koepka, world number two Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele shared second on 276. When I tapped the putt in - I don't know what I did. "To have the injuries and come back and do what he has done, it has been tremendous to watch". The all-time leader for majors victories is Jack Nicklaus with 18. But it's not like I can only worry about him.

Paired together in the final round of last year's British Open, won by the Italian at Carnoustie, Molinari and Woods found themselves in the last group again battling for a major title. After starting on the back nine, DeChambeau made the first hole-in-one of his career on the par-3 16th, draining the 170-yard shot after hitting to the right side of the green and using the slope to trickle down to the hole. After his win, they were filmed hugging him.

He now has 15 major championships for his career, including five victories at The Masters.


He also set a record for the longest gap between Masters triumphs, the 14-year spread one year longer than the old mark set by South African Gary Player from 1961 to 1974.

Due to an ominous weather forecast, golfers will go off from the first and 10th tees in threesomes and Koepka will be followed around the course by the final grouping of Molinari, Tiger Woods and Tony Finau.

Woods held off Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele, who each finished at -12.
