Francesco Molinari has vowed to learn from his Masters battle with Tiger Woods after missing out on a second major title at Augusta National.

It had been 14 years since he last won the Masters and 11 years since his last major victory.

It marked a remarkable redemption for Woods, and it silenced the many doubters who had thought his best days were way beyond him.

Nike has likely had this commercial ready to send for the last several years, but it was worth the wait since it hits you right in the feels.

President Donald Trump praised the win, tweeting: "Love people who are great under pressure".

Though the odds are still against 43-year-old Woods, who is racing against Father Time as well as a fused spine that could cause more problems, it is no longer inconceivable to imagine him winning three or four majors.

Being in the middle of a golf gallery when Tiger Woods is in contention is a insane experience, but the fans, er, patrons, were absolutely nuts Sunday with shouts of "TIGER" rumbling through the Augusta layout every few seconds. "I am so inspired thank you buddy". "I'm so happy for him and for the game of golf this is so fantastic".

That gave him a two-shot cushion, and no one was going to catch him. And as he holed the putt that brought to an unlikely end a drought that few had foreseen and even fewer foresaw being broken, the 15-time major victor crept one step closer to Jack Nicklaus' unrivaled 18 titles.

The question now is whether Woods can catch up with Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 majors. I really couldn't so much of anything. Just the opposite of a year ago when hardly anyone was a Patrick Reed fan when he won, it seemed EVERYONE was a Tiger fan on Sunday.

"Three years ago I said to my caddie and to everyone in my camp "I'm going to make a hole in one here one day" and sure enough it was my first one three years later", DeChambeau said.

"But I did have my 30 seconds in the sun with the lead and it was a really cool feeling, and it just proves to my team and I that we can contend and that we can win on this property".

Tiger Roars at Augusta are different than at any other tournament.

When Woods won his historic first Masters title, in 1997, he played alongside Costantino Rocca in the final round.

Now, today's generation is going to know what it felt like to be in the field when Tiger was in his prime, when nearly nobody else mattered but Tiger, when every interview came with multiple Tiger questions, when nothing else mattered with Tiger stalking a title.

"I did think [this day] would come", he told CNN.

"I've done a couple of things that I wish I had done differently now but I'll learn from my mistakes". Tiger Woods won his first major in 11 years, and yet all the suspense was wrapped up by the middle of the afternoon, thanks to a weather forecast that moved up the start of the round by a few hours, with threesomes going off the first and 10th tees.
