Some of the best stats from Tiger's major winning victory at The Masters

• With his victory, Tiger Woods moves to World No.6. It's the first time he's been inside the top 10 in the world since 2014. 

• It was the first time Tiger has won a major coming from behind heading in to the final round. He began the day two back of leader Francesco Molinari

• With a final round of 70, Woods has now played his last 12 rounds in major championships in par or better.

• This was Tiger's 81st PGA Tour victory, putting him just one behind Sam Snead's all-time record of 82. 

• Tiger led the field in SG: Approach at the 2019 Masters, hitting 58/72 greens in regulation this week - 3 more than any other player in the field. 

• His last Masters victory came in 2005, leaving a gap of 14 years between titles - which is the longest in history. 

• Tiger now has five Masters victories. He was previously tied for second with Arnold Palmer on four, and now moves second on his own behind Jack Nicklaus, who has 6. 

• He is also just the second player, like Nicklaus, to win a Masters title in three different decades. 

• At 43 years old, Tiger Woods is the oldest Masters champion since Jack Nicklaus in 1986.

• Another Tiger and Jack stat: It was 22 years since Tiger won his first major, making him only the second player to win majors more than 20 years apart.

• Tiger didn't have an eagle the entire week. He's the fifth player in the last 10 years to win the Masters without an eagle: the others were Danny Willett, Jordan Spieth, Adam Scott and Bubba Watson ('12). 

• Although Tiger Woods had 14 major titles before this, he won every one of them with former caddie Steve Williams on the bag. This was his first win with Joe LaCava.
