Masters Leaderboard PGA Tour: In 2011, Masters, for some, is the event where Tiger Woods is out of its economic slump post-SAGA. E 'Augusta National, a course in which he gave some of his heroic moments, which always seems to play well.
Tigre opening round of 71 did not put it out of the race, but has a ways to go.
The players are not lying for him. Rory McIlroy has set the tone with near-perfect seven-under 65 and there are plenty of golfers ranked in front of Tiger, including YE Yang, Phil Mickelson, KJ Choi and Matt Kuchar.
I've narrowed it down to three things Tiger to do to get back in the mix at the Masters 75 years.
In golf, always keep things simple.
Tiger Woods was once famous for maximizing the par five. In general, it is one of the toughest tests of golf. Augusta National has a few holes for a player of Woods's ability to be birdies in each round.
I do not speak the best year of age.
Woods was one of four on Thursday to convert two birdie putt on 13
It is not the player on tour more, which is fine, but it certainly has the game length and seating for two, eight, 13 and 16 in the four par.
There are tons of talent on the field this week, and will take at least two birdies in a round of the five peers to stay in the race.
Between par five, it should remain fairly close to parity, which brings me to my next point
