Tiger Woods has won his fourth Green Jacket at the US Masters, winning a sudden death playoff against Chris DiMarco after Dimarco caught up with him on the last day at 12 under par for the tournament. On Sunday, he set a masters record with seven straight birdies. Woods shot a one under 71 on the last day while Marco caught up with a 4 under to equal the master at 12 under 276 for the tournament. This is Tiger Woods' first major victory since the 2002 US Open and takes him back into the world number one slot. The 29 year-old moves level with Ben Hogan and Gary Player in the all-time major-winning list, still nine behind Jack Nicklaus, who announced on Saturday that the 2005 Masters would be his last.
