Here's When Tiger Woods Will Tee Off On Friday

If you missed any of Tiger's first round, lucky for you, the Masters official Twitter account has it all in one video.

Smith, playing just his second Masters, noticed how the power he has gained since he first played here as an amateur in 2015 helped him.

He managed to find the positives.

Woods, who is bidding for a fifth Green Jacket, may not have set Augusta alight with his opening round but he was happy to be in contention at one-over par. And I fought hard to get it back in there, and I'm back in this championship.

Garcia broke the previous "record" of 11 shots on the hole held by three players: Jumbo Ozaki (1987), Ben Crenshaw (1987) and Ignacio Garrido (1998).

Spieth almost managed to pull away when he began the back nine with three tough par saves, ran off five straight birdies and overcame a wild drive left into the trees that left him some 250 yards for his third shot.

Shares of U.S. exporters tumble as China retaliates on tariffs
China hit back within hours with its own threatened duties on US imports including soybeans, planes, cars, whiskey and chemicals. Chinese tariffs on US -made planes are not certain, and the proposal only covers planes within a certain weight range.

But after two top-five finishes in tuneup events last month, Tigermania again buzzes at Augusta National, where Woods hopes to close the gap on the record 18 major titles of Jack Nicklaus. I feel like it's the first time in my career where I make a 13 without missing a shot.

But if you take the four par-5s on the course, both his irons and the driver coalesce to tell the story of the round, and even he'll tell you that. I don't do well in domes or driving range shots.

It was also the first time he failed to shoot par or better since the second round of the Genesis Open - a stretch of 12 rounds - in February.

Mark O'Meara will "more than likely" announce on Friday that he has played his final US Masters. The 55-year-old birdied the first and twice held the lead at three under par before dropping shots at the 14th and the last. And things only got worse from there.

He spanked drives at No. 2 and No. 8, but made par. It was a rare extreme "Tin Cup" moment for a seasoned pro as he sent one ball after another onto the green, only to watch them all spin back into the creek in front.

Spieth, who won the green jacked in 2015, was on fire after the turn, hitting five birdies in-a-row between 13 and 17.

Prince Philip recovering after 'successful' hip replacement surgery
In May 2017, the Duke of Edinburgh stepped down from his royal duties after announcing his retirement. The Queen and Prince Philip celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last November.

"I know as well as anyone that anything happens at Augusta National and I'm not going to get ahead of myself", said Spieth, who blew a five-shot lead with nine holes to play in 2016. The key for McIlroy was that he holed putts and kept silly blemishes off his card, with just the one bogey.

"I felt like I hit a lot of good shots and unfortunately the ball just didn't want to stop". If you start to chase it around here, that's when you start to make mistakes. And I didn't capitalize on some putts that I've usually been making.

Woods says he "definitely didn't score as well as I played", noting that he has to be better on the par-5s.

"I could have easily let the round slip away from me but I got it back and I´m right back in this tournament". "But I got two of them back coming in".

Birdies at 14 and 16, the latter producing the loudest roars directed at Woods all day, took him to one over.

"A 73 is fine", Woods said.
