The start of the 84th US Masters in Augusta could hardly have been better for Tiger Woods. With 68 tricks (4 under par) the defending champion established himself in the top group. Hardly anyone would have expected such a performance at today’s most prestigious golf tournament, because since the game resumed in the US in June, Woods has never gone better than 37th in six tournaments.
At his favorite tournament, which he had won a total of five times and most recently in April 2019, Woods played at the best of times for now. On the 18 holes he suffered no loss of stroke. The 44-year-old delivered 14 pars and four birdies.
Woods played with an early start time on Thursday. Shortly after the start, the tournament had to be interrupted for about three hours due to thunderstorms. Bernd Wiesberger also had to wait longer for his tee shot. The Burgenland recorded a stroke victory on the first six holes and was thus at the front of the midfield.
