It was a lucky escape for the former Masters champion, as the rules take into account intention to make a legitimate stroke. The 2007 Masters champ bounced back in the early going on his second round, moving to one-over par on several occasions.

Since his last major victory in 2008, Woods career has been blighted by a persistent back injury and multiple surgeries.

The victory also marked the first time Woods had reached the winner's circle at major without leading after 54 holes.

When his final putt disappeared into the cup, Woods delivered one of his trademark fist pumps then raised both arms in the air screaming in absolute delight as the crowd chanted, "Tiger, Tiger, Tiger".

The win comes 22 years after his first win at Augusta in 1997, and 14 his since his previous triumph on the course in 2005.

"It's overwhelming. Because of what transpired past year - I was lucky to be playing again".

Patrick Cantlay found his name at the top of the leaderboard before promptly making bogeys at 16 and 17 to fall out of contention, while all the time Woods marched serenely on, his victory sure to spark debate about the greatest sporting comebacks of all time.
