Tiger Woods, seeking his first major title in 11 years, birdied the par-five 15th hole to take a one-shot lead on the final day at the 2019 Masters. He extended that lead to two shots on the 16th hole.
Woods, who counts four Masters green jackets among his 14 majors, was at 14-under par — breaking out of a group at 12-under that swelled to as many as five players as the tournament hurtled toward its conclusion.
When he walked off 15 there were three players one shot back on 12-under: former US Open champion Dustin Johnson, three-time major winner Brooks Koepka, and 25-year-old rising star Xander Schauffele.
British Open champion Francesco Molinari, who started the day with a two shot and was was still two up through 11, found the water at both 12 and 15, making double bogeys at both.
Woods, who won his first major at Augusta National in 1997, won his last Masters title back in 2005.
