The top of the leaderboard is packed, featuring huge names like Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari. Woods' win on Sunday was his 15th major victory, three short of the standard set by Nicklaus. After a poor chip he two-putted for a double bogey-5 to fall into a tie for the lead.
Nicklaus, 23-times tennis grand slam victor Serena Williams, Super Bowl champion Tom Brady also applauded the victory on Twitter while swimmer Michael Phelps, the victor of a record 23 Olympic gold medals, was at Augusta National to cheer Woods on.
Woods served notice he had returned to form by contending last year at the British Open and PGA before snapping a five-year title drought by capturing the Tour Championship.

At least one parent was with the young victim Friday morning when Aranda allegedly threw him from the third-floor balcony. Twenty-four-year-old Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda , of Minneapolis, is jailed on a suspicion of attempted homicide charge.
Molinari said he knew it could be a tough challenge holding off Woods, who has a history of making memorable charges on the final day of major tournaments, especially at Augusta. "So I enjoy it, it's fun, getting definitely more comfortable with it as every major goes by". But it's not like I can only worry about him. "And we've seen today that you can shoot seven or eight under the way the course is playing". Now he's the clubhouse leader.
The 43-year old won The Masters on Sunday shooting a two-under 70 at Augusta National, winning the prestigious tournament for the first time since 2005. But ensuing rounds of 75 and 73 would derail those hopes, leading to a disappointing week for the world's sixth-ranked player.
