AUGUSTA, Ga.— The final round of any golf tournament brings a number of facts and figures to ponder, but the Masters normally proves to be a treasure trove of such items. Here are the key statistics from the final round of the 83rd Masters:

0: Number of times before Sunday that Tiger Woods had rallied from a deficit after three rounds to win a major professional championship. Woods started the day two strokes off the lead before shooting a 70 and winning by one over Dustin Johnson (68), Xander Schauffele (68) and Brooks Koepka (70) and by two over Jason Day (67), Webb Simpson (70), Tony Finau (72) and third-round leader Francesco Molinari (74).

1: First career hole-in-one for Bryson DeChambeau (not only in competition, the first ace he’s had anywhere), finally breaking through at the 16th hole. The ace was the 21st in Masters history at 16, and Justin Thomas later followed with No. 22. There has been only one Masters hole-in-one at the fourth hole (by Jeff Sluman in 1992), five aces at the sixth, and three at the 12th. The hole-in-one was the culmination of a wild start to DeChambeau's round. Starting at No. 10 on Sunday, DeChambeau played his first seven holes in even par: double bogey, double bogey, birdie, par, par, birdie, eagle.

Bethpage Black, site of the PGA next month after that championship’s move in the schedule, was where Tiger won his second U.S. Open trophy, in 2002, and Pebble Beach is where he won his first U.S. Open, a 15-stroke victory in 2000. That was the start of the Tiger Slam from 2000-2001: victories in the U.S. Open, the Open Championship at St. Andrews and the PGA Championship at Valhalla in 2000, followed by a second green jacket to complete the Slam at the 2001 Masters.

One of the people who believes Woods will do it is none other than John Daly, who has never shied away from expressing his opinion on any topic. “I not only think, I know he will,” Daly said, per TMZ Sports. “It’s just destiny.
