The golf world can forget the 'Fab Four' for a while at least. The 'Fab One' is back - after yet another Augusta epic. After 10 majors without a win and five where he had not even been in contention in the last round, Tiger Woods achieved an amazing fourth Masters victory on Sunday night. He beat Ryder Cup team-mate Chris DiMarco with a 15-foot birdie putt at the first hole of a sudden-death play-off.

Woods seemed to have their duel in the bag following one of the most dramatic shots of his short career on the par three 16th. Having sent his tee shot long and left, Woods chipped up the slope beyond the flag and watched the ball come back down, stop on the lip and then fall in.

It put him two ahead, but he was in the trees at the 17th and a bunker on the last, and could not save par either time, pulling a 10-footer wide at the 72nd. They tied on the 12-under-par total of 276, an incredible seven clear of Britain's Luke Donald and South African Retief Goosen. Donald had two eagles and two birdies in the last eight holes for a finish only ever bettered by eight players on their first attempt in the event.
