Golf: Tiger Woods finishes second in the Masters final day


Golf superstar Tiger Woods continues to dream of the comeback of the year: The 43-year-old also played a strong round on the third day of the Masters in Augusta and is only two strokes behind the leader Francesco Molinari before the final day. For Woods, who has been waiting for a major tournament since 2008 for health reasons, it would be his 15th success in one of the big tournaments. In Augusta Woods won for the last time 14 years ago.

The crowd favorite played a strong '67 round on the par 72 course. With a total of 205 strokes and eleven under par Woods ranks with his compatriot Tony Finau in second place. Behind them lie the world ranking fourth Brooks Koepka (USA / 206 strokes) as well as Webb Simpson (USA) and the Englishman Ian Poulter on the divided fifth rank.

Bernhard Langer did not really get going on the third day. After a round of 75, the 61-year-old fell back to the split 50th place with a total of 218 strokes. Above all, the end of his round annoyed the Masters winner of 1985 and 1993: On the two final lanes, Langer made with a bogey and a double bogey equal three blow losses.

Martin Kaymer played with 72 strokes his best lap so far this year's Masters. In the overall standings of the doped with 11 million dollar tournament, the two-time major winner with 219 strokes and 57th place could not improve.

Because of a threatening storm over the plant in the US state of Georgia, the organizers decided on Saturday, the start times for the final round on Sunday to move forward significantly. The three leaders will now start together at 9:20 am local time (3:20 pm CEST) so that the Masters champion could already be handed the green winning jacket around 3:00 pm local time (9:00 pm CEST).
