The 2019 Masters lived up to the hype. Tiger Woods is your champion, but he didn’t win the green jacket without some stiff competition.

Here’s how the final few holes unfolded.

Dustin Johnson sinks four birdies in his final five holes

Dustin Johnson wasn't hanging with the leaders for most of this Masters weekend, but he charged late, carding four birdies in his final five holes. Johnson finished at -12 for the tournament.

Molinari's tough 15

Francesco Molinari was with the leaders for most of the weekend, but his double bogey on the 15th hole would do him in. Molinari entered the hole at -12 and left it at -10. He was never able to recover, finishing in a tie for fifth place.

Tiger catches fire on 15

Molinari's double bogey was bad enough itself, but Tiger's birdie didn't help matters. This was the moment Woods took the outright lead.

But his signature shot came on 16. Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas aced No. 16 on Sunday, and Tiger came close to doing the same. This was a ridiculous shot, considering the stakes.


Woods sank par on 17. Brooks Koepka didn't make up any ground on 18, so barring anything crazy, the tournament was Tiger's to lose with a hole to go.

He carded bogey and hit the final putt. Celebration ensued, as Tiger won his fifth green jacket:
