Here's how to watch Tiger Woods, Masters before national TV coverage begins

Here's how to watch Tiger Woods, Masters before national TV coverage begins

Blame it on a generation that believes nothing was ever as great as what just happened.

"I'm an avid fan of the history of the game, and I know a win here and what that would mean and where that would put me in history alongside some of the greatest that have ever played this game, and that would mean an very bad lot to me", McIlroy said. The competition set to start today at Augusta National Golf Club is so steep, four players have a chance to be No. 1 in the world. The first tee shot of the day, a 3-wood, was left.

"His endorsement [that we make the best ball] is more valuable than all of the science and data that we throw out to the consumers", Bridgestone CEO Angel Ilagan told the outlet.

As recently as the Valspar Championship last month, we saw the impact that Tiger Woods has on ratings nearly five years removed from his last Tour victory.

Tiger Woods is back in Augusta, and the golf world is ecstatic.

And the number 1 player who can win the Masters, Rory McIlroy- This is the last major Rory needs to complete the career Grand Slam, something only Nicklaus, Tiger, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen have accomplished. He simply said "someone else" is playing well when asked about the favorites. "So let's just kind of slow down". To put those comments in perspective, we need to take a look at what Tiger Woods meant to professional golf in general and the PGA Tour in particular. The Masters will be the first major he plays since the PGA Championship in August 2015. He beat two of his biggest rivals, Mickelson and David Duval, to deliver under the pressure.

"Trust me, he knows", said Tiger Tracker. "The key is going to be can he win, can he stay healthy and can he stay out of trouble?" And hopefully, I end up on top. "Yes I'm much tighter and I have to work on strength in different ways but I'm hitting speeds I hit in my prime".

The opening hole was just the first of 72 at the tournament, but after holding their breath after his tee shot, Tiger fans around the world could exhale when he came back to start the day even. But that's normal for him early at the Masters.

Last year, on his way to victory, Garcia hit the flagstick with his 2nd shot to the 15th during the final round and made the eagle putt. Players historically average 4.24 strokes on the first hole and Woods has bogeyed the hole five times since 2010 and has a scoring average of 4.0 over his past 20 rounds. "How he's found five more miles per hour in club-head speed in his 40s after a fused back is unbelievable".

Parziale has admitted the icon was the main reason he started playing in the first place, so he'll no doubt have been delighted with the letter he received from him after his victory in the US Mid-Amateur. It was one of the lower moments in his life.

Dating to 1991, with the exception of Zach Johnson in 2007 (T-4th), Bubba Watson in 2012 (T-3rd), Adam Scott in 2013 (3rd) and Danny Willett in 2016 (T-5th), each Masters champion has been T-2nd or better after 54 holes.

Woods made a bogey from the fringe on 12 that he absolutely had to have.

Woods wasn't almost as dialed in.

The bigger obstacle might be a dozen or more other contenders, all of whom earned their share of the hype.

Before the Masters Tournament gets underway with the first round on Thursday, on Wednesday you can get previews from the range and watch the Par 3 Contest.
