Nunez: Absolutely. Having seen Tiger Woods in person at Valspar, he alone was worth the ticket cost and made that tournament relevant.

He had three birdies on the day, including one at No. 3.

X-rays were negative, and Finau was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain.

One of the appeals of The Masters Tournament is the amount of tradition the tournament carries.

British Amateur champion Harry Ellis had a much tougher time. Woods started the week as a co-favorite along with Rory McIlroy, but has dropped down the odds a bit as the week progressed. He hasn't won, but he's been within a shot of the lead on the back nine in his past three starts.

Tiger Woods is wearing all black and teed off at 9:42 a.m.

For the first time in almost a decade, the game's biggest star - four-time Masters champion Tiger Woods - is a legitimate contender, with two top 10s in five events this season.

For Woods, a man who has endured four operations on his back and worked through personal challenges, this is where it all began, really, in 1997, when a 21-year-old phenom turned the golf universe on its side in a record 12-shot victory at the Masters.

Amusing thing, it looked like the Masters would be the first major championship of McIlroy's career.

"He just seemed calmed the entire time, " says Angela. I didn't become interested in golf until around 2013, and by that point, he'd been through his scandal and played on and off until winning again, coincidentally at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, in 2012.

Stainer noted that Woods also gets more time on screen than any other player, and sponsors are aware of that disparity.

Pogba smashed in a superb free-kick shortly after half-time, while setting up Kylian Mbappe to open the scoring before the break. Mbappe, however, made sure of France's victory when he slalomed through the defence and beat Lunyov again with another low shot.


"It's the same thing", Woods said. And Bubba Watson, a two-time Masters victor, won the match-play event in Texas. Unlike other majors, the risk and reward features of the par 5 13th and 15th holes create an atmosphere that lends itself to big comebacks and monumental collapses down the stretch.

Meanwhile, fans unable to attend the tournament have to make do with the Masters limited coverage on TV and online on its official website.

McIlroy sees no reason why this Masters can't be the one that pushes him into elite company. The dates for the event are April 4-6, with the final round held the day before the annual Drive, Chip and Putt competition at Augusta National.

Jeff Ritter, digital development editor, GOLF.com: "I've also been on [Justin] Rose for a while, but now that we're here, I have this amusing feeling about [Rory] McIlroy".

Charley Hoffman sits atop the leaderboard at 4 under.

Woods not only moves the needle, he is the needle. Just 10 months ago, the most famous photo of him came from a Florida jail after his arrest on a DUI charge stemming from the wrong combination of prescription drugs. He cleared hundreds of fans before attempting to play through a spectator walking area.

He took advantage of solid tee shots and even better approach shots while making consecutive birdies at the second and third holes. He rolled it to within inches for a terrific par save. And if it probably carries a foot less, it probably doesn't go off the green and probably stays on the fringe.

The 11th brought more trouble as his tee shot sailed way right of the fairway. He had a big birdie on 16 in a spot where he needed something positive out of the final three holes.

"And that's - if I sit there and think about it every night - it gives me chills just trying to think about that actual feeling".

Good morning from Augusta National.

He dislocated his ankle celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par-3 Tournament on Wednesday and then popped it back into place.
