5th Masters title: Tiger Woods caps comeback with 15th major title

Finau, aiming to become the fifth straight player to make the Masters his first Major title, opened with three straight birdies.

Molinari had led by three after five holes but headed to the 10th a solitary stroke clear of Woods at 13 under, with Finau and Brooks Koepka two off the pace. Canadian Corey Conners enters Round 3 at 3-under par.

With the forecast calling for heavy rain and thunderstorms late on Sunday officials have chose to send golfers off in threesomes from both the first and 10th tees rather than traditional pairs in an attempt to get the final round completed and avoid a Monday finish to the year's first major.

McIlroy was also less than happy with his tee shot on the par-three fourth, but holed from 32 feet for an unlikely birdie, only to then drop shots on the sixth, seventh and ninth, where his approach plugged in the top of a greenside bunker.

Italy's Molinari, the reigning British Open champion, stayed patient through five opening pars as birdies broke out everywhere on rain-softened Augusta. "So I enjoy it, it's fun, getting definitely more comfortable with it as every major goes by".

Joseph, who snatched a record-breaking six-wicket haul in his previous match, sent down two overs for 22 runs. With a century to be scored in this game available at 17/2, I think that is exceptional value.

"I hit a really good shot, but I didn't think it was going to be, you know, a foot from the hole", Finau said.

Woods was impressive during a 67 that left him tied second at 11 under alongside American Tony Finau, who carded an equal day's best 64, while three-time major victor Brooks Koepka (69) is fourth at 10 under.

He hopes his experience playing in the final round at the U.S. Open at Shinnecock last June helps him Sunday.

Molinari has put together a remarkable run this week, with his only bogey coming at the 11th hole during the first round.

Tiger Woods, breaking an 11-year drought since his last major championship win, scored a dramatic come-from-behind victory at The Masters tournament on Sunday. In 2017 at the Masters Woods wasn't in the field and was telling people he thought his playing career was over due to the back issues that plagued him for years. "Just got to keep battling and see where I leave myself tomorrow afternoon". All of them made par on the first hole. "I said before the tournament that if you took the Tiger Woods off, you'd have a golfer with the statistics of someone at 25-1 odds". "I was just very patient today, felt very good to be out there doing what I was doing".

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks founder, to reportedly be expelled from Ecuadorian embassy
Because of this so-called "breach", Assange will be made to leave the embassy and would be arrested by British authorities. Last week, Anderson tweeted a picture of herself with Assange, saying she hasn't been able to visit him for a year.

"I try not to be too fazed about that sort of stuff".

Mickelson stumbled to a 73 but still was only three shots behind. Wise bogeyed the 18th and final hole.

Sales of juggling balls and meditation apps after Rory McIlroy's unusual preparation failed to get him into contention to complete the career grand slam.

Day's countryman Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters victor, sits at six under having made double-bogey at the par-4 fourth, as well as two bogeys and two birdies, to be one over for the round. He was only seven shots behind, but he had 35 players in front of him.
