Woods finished in a six-way tie for third place. 2013: t-Fourth place (-5)Woods was tied for seventh after three rounds and pushed to 3 under heading into the final round.

Woods finished six strokes behind and alone in fifth place. Tiger Woods won the  2019 Masters Sunday in thrilling fashion for his fifth championship at Augusta. Woods shot a -2 on Sunday and finished the tournament at -13. He won his first major tournament since 2008 and first Masters tournament since 2005. This also marked the 12th time Woods finshed in the top five at Augusta.  Sporting News ranked Woods’ top-five finishes from 1-12. MORE: Worst Masters chokes all time 1997: First place (-18)Woods made history on so many levels. The 21-year-old won the championship. He opened a nine-shot lead after three rounds, and finished with a tournament record 270 (-18), which was a record 12 strokes ahead of second-place finisher Tom Kite. It was an all-time iconic performance in the sport that launched Woods into super-stardom.  2019: First place (-13) Woods won his 15th major tournament at 43 years old with an inconic first place finish at Augusta. He entered the day two strokes off the lead, but he passed Francesco Molinari on hole No. 15 and clinched his fifth green jacket with a bogey putt on No. 18. Woods, who had not won a major since 2008, re-emerged as the biggest story in golf. 2001: First place (-16)Woods and Phil Mickelson went head-to-head through three rounds, with Woods holding a one-shot lead at 12 under. Woods shot 4-under par in the final round to hold off David Duval, who led after a birdie on No. 15 before falling short by two strokes.   2005: First place (-12)Woods won his fourth green jacket at a water-logged Augusta where there were several delays during the week. Chris DiMarco was 13 under and led Woods by four strokes heading into the final round, but Woods made a charge with seven straight birdies in the third round to set up a memorable Sunday. That round produced Woods’ famous chip-in on No. 16, but it would take a playoff with DiMarco to decide the winner. That’s when Woods drilled a birdie putt to clinch his fourth victory at the tournament.  2002: First place (-12)Woods entered the final round tied with Retief Goosen at 11 under, but Woods shot 1 under on the final round to win his third green jacket.
