On a day when Augusta National, which had been softened by rain earlier in the week, was yielding low scores Koepka could only muster a three-under-par 69 that left him alone in fourth place and three shots back of leader Francesco Molinari.

Despite a cluster of years that seemed to hack away at the legend of Tiger Woods, the 43-year-old came back this year and won the Masters, adding a fifth green jacket to his wardrobe and earning him his 15th overall major championship win.

Due to an ominous weather forecast, golfers will go off from the first and 10th tees in threesomes and Koepka will be followed around the course by the final grouping of Molinari, Tiger Woods and Tony Finau.

The message alongside the video, reads: 'It's insane to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15th major is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old'.

"I'm a little hoarse from yelling", Tiger said of his win, per NPR. Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today? "My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids there". "I'm at a loss for words really".

Some of golf's best and brightest were also quick off the mark in congratulating their rival, including Jack Nicklaus - whose record of 18 major titles is being chased down by Woods - and Great White Shark, Greg Norman.

"I am literally in tears watching TigerWoods this is Greatness like no other". "I'm so happy for him and for the game of golf this is so fantastic". "This is just fantastic!"

It's the first time Woods has won a major when he didn't hold the 54-hole lead, and sets a new record for the longest gap between Masters victories. 79-year-old Nicklaus posted on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, (73, six under), Marc Leishman (75, one over) and Cameron Smith (77, two over) rounded out the Australian contingent.
