I never doubted Tiger Woods would win another major, says record-holder Jack Nicklaus

The world's elite returned to Augusta for the 83rd rendition of The Masters, but at the end of the four thrilling days it was the greatest of them all left standing on top of the pile.

Tiger Woods delivered one of the most thrilling round's of golf of his career after lighting up the back nine to win his fifth Masters Green Jacket, and claim a 15th major title.

But that is just the start of the story - arguably the greatest comeback story seen in sport. Woods has not won a major since the 2008 US Open after suffering from personal issues and a chronic back problem, the latter of which threatened to end his career.

Despite the comeback, there were still huge doubts over whether the 43-year-old could return to the top of the game, but he silenced those doubters once and for all with an astonishing victory at Augusta National to remind the world why he is, now, a 15-time major champion.

In the process, Woods has added to his vast wealth with a huge pay day.

Last year's Green Jacket winner, Patrick Reed, took home $1.98m (£1.49m), while second place was awarded $1.19m (£899,250). But Woods will colelcta vast improvement on that fee with the winners' pot increased to an eye-watering $2,070,000 (£1.58m).
