cheering and applause. this was the moment tiger woods ended an 11 year wait to claim a 15th major. a remarkable resurgence for a player who has been plagued by back problems in recent years. could this be the win he needs to dominate golf once again? overnight leader francesco molinari had looked good for the win heading into the final round. but his hopes sunk with two double bogeys on the back nine, in the end he had to settle for a share of fifth place. the 16th was to prove entertaining for the watching crowd at augusta. justin thomas with a spectacular hole—in—1 after bryson dechambeau had done the same thing on the same hole earlier in the day. brooks koepka was also providing a challenge. the american has one three
of the past seven majors, but his efforts were to be outdone by a lurking tiger. written off by so many in recent years, this is to be the first time woods has come from behind in the final round to win a major. big celebrations on the 18th, at two under par 70 to win the tournament on 13 under. this is his first major title since 2008 and his fifth green jacket. woods is now one behind jack nicholas‘s record of six wins at augusta national and three behind his fellow americans overall major tally of 18. when i tapped it in, i don't know what i did but i know i screamed and i was looking forjoey somewhere. i shook the guy's hands and found joey and it was a pretty good embrace and then to have my kids there, it's
come full circle. my dad was here in 97 and now i'm the dad with two kids. i thinkjust because of what has transpired and last year, i was just very lucky to be playing again. the previous dinner, the champions dinner, i was really struggling and i missed a couple of years of not playing this great tournament, to 110w playing this great tournament, to now being the champion. was it 22 yea rs now being the champion. was it 22 years between wins? it's a long time. but it's just unreal for me to experience this. my mum was here, she was there in ‘97 as well, and so ijust couldn't be more happy and more excited. i'm kind of at a loss for words, really. a short time ago, i spoke to former lpga tour player anya alvarez who told me the win for woods will bring more spectators back to the game of golf.
he is 43 years old and he has had so many injuries. to me, i think that is the more remarkable thing, being able to bounce back from all the surgeries he has had, to come back from the pain he has enjoyed. also, more than anything, all the negative criticism he has received in terms of him even trying to come back. there have been so many people that have tried to say or who have said that tiger woods would never win again, that he should retire, hang up again, that he should retire, hang up the clubs and he was late, no, you guys are not going to write my story for me, i'm going to write it for myself. i think the fact that tiger is a major champion again will reinvigorate goals in ways that we don't fully quite understand yet. you know, he brings in people that aren't even fans of golf to watch because they like to see those types of stories. he is great for the game andi of stories. he is great for the game and i have no doubt the viewership
for the pga tour this year will be much higher than it was in previous yea rs. 0nto football and liverpool remain top of the premier league after a 2—0 win over chelsea at anfield. two goals in as many minutes from sadio mane and mo salah sealed the win and it keeps liverpool two points ahead of manchester city in the table, asjurgen klopp looks to help the club claim a first english league title in 29 years. we really expect to win as many games as possible and that means at the end we are champion and if not, another really good football team. i am so another really good football team. i am so proud of the boys. fantastic performances. for the team, for the stadium, what an atmosphere, wow! i am so stadium, what an atmosphere, wow! i am so thankful that i am a part of this, it's just great. earlier, manchester city won 3—1 at crystal palace. raheem sterling scored twice to put city ahead, taking his tally for the season to 21. gabrieljesus got the third after palace pulled one back with city still holding a game

a player later this week. now, we start off monday morning still on quite a cold note. could be a touch of frost in the countryside, with temperatures below freezing in a few spots. through the day, though, lots of sunshine for many areas. not everywhere. particularly in the west, we've got more cloud. outbreaks of patchy rain for parts of northern ireland, west wales, the south—west of england. also a bit cloudier for the east coast of england and eastern scotland with a few spots of drizzle. temperatures just 8 degrees or so in aberdeen. in the sunnier spells, 13 or 14 celsius. a little warmer than it has been through the course of the weekend. through the week ahead, eventually we wave goodbye to the blue colours and we welcome in a return to this much milder and a drifting up from the south. bringing that increase in the temperature. it won't be dry everywhere on tuesday. because we've got a weak front which isjust lingering through the irish sea, bringing some patchy rain to the west of scotland, northern ireland, wales, and the south—west of england. either side of that cloud and rain, we'll see some drier weather with some sunshine. temperatures in the warmer spots up to 15.
still rather cool around some of those exposed north sea coasts. moving on into the middle of the week, wednesday could start with a little bit of patchy mist, particularly for wales, the south—west of england. that should clear. a bit of patchy cloud here and there. all in all a dry and fine day. the top averages up to 17 or 18 in the south, even the mid—teens further north. certainly a bit of a warmer spell of weather. that warmer drier theme continues into thursday does a warmer spell. so we've got a gentle breeze coming in from the south—east. just the chance of an isolated shower. but i think for the vast majority of places it is dry and bright. and we could well see 19 or 20 celsius by the time we get to thursday, particularly in the south. even further north those temperatures in the mid or even the high teens. so doing well for the time of year. and it looks like the mostly dry warm weather continues with the easter weekend, just the chance of light rain in the far north—west. bye for now.
