Want to watch the Masters this week? The Masters is off and rolling with major champions all bunched up at the top of the leaderboard and four-time Masters champion Tiger Woods very much in the hunt for another green jacket. Woods shot a 2-under 70, matching his first round score from each of his first three Masters victories. The only problem is that, in , the competition is much better than it was in , or That first-round 70 has him hanging on with 10 other players just outside the top That top status is important considering each of the last 13 Masters winners has come from the top 10 at the conclusion of the first round.
The Masters Tournament was the 83rd edition of the Masters Tournament and the first of golf's four major championships in , held between April 11 and 14 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Tiger Woods won his fifth Green Jacket , and fifteenth major, by one stroke ahead of three runners-up. It left him one shy of Jack Nicklaus ' record six Masters wins, and three short of his record eighteen major wins. At age 43 he became the second oldest winner, again only bettered by Nicklaus who won at age It was 11 years after his last major win, the U. Open , and 14 years since his last Masters win beating the previous record of 13 years held by Gary Player. Due to the high profile of Woods, and his storied fall from the top of the game due to personal issues and injuries, the victory generated a large amount of publicity around the world, and is regarded as one of the great sporting comebacks. Woods only emerged to lead the tournament in the final round, when Francesco Molinari , who had been leading the tournament for a long period hit his ball into the water on the 12th hole, and then again on the 15th after hitting a tree. It meant it was the first time Woods won a major when not leading after the 54th hole.

T wo years after believing his stellar career was over, Tiger Woods produced a vintage performance to put himself firmly in contention for a first major title since in the 83rd Masters. But standing in his way is an inspired Open champion in the shape of Francesco Molinari, who played with Woods in the final round at Carnoustie last year on his way to lifting the Claret Jug. Molinari, who also beat Woods three times alongside Tommy Fleetwood in compiling a perfect record in the Ryder Cup, carded a flawless third round of 66 to finish 13 under par and has dropped just one shot all week, on the 11th hole on Thursday.
