The 47-year-old could be seen recoiling at numerous points across an unstable begin, carding a two-over 74 on his 25th appearance at Augusta National.

It saw the five-time Masters champion coating 9 shots adrift of Norwegian playing partner Viktor Hovland, that went back to the clubhouse connected for the lead after a brilliant seven-under opening round.

Woods stated Tuesday that he was unsure if today would be his last look at the tournament. The fifteen-time major champ’s competitive appearances have been sporadic because he suffered serious leg injuries in a major car crash in 2021.

A significant resurgence at the 2022 Masters saw Woods shock lots of by making it, however his physical struggles to browse a hilly Augusta surface were evident, worsened by surgical treatment that had actually put a pole as well as pins in his ideal leg.

One year on, he shut his opening round getting on his left leg after an unpleasant retreat shot from a bunker at the 18th hole. Quizzed on the condition of his leg after his round, Woods was candid.

” Sore,” he informed press reporters.

” Hop on the left leg is great. If I did it on the other one, not so fine,” he included.

A slow-moving beginning saw Woods open up with 3 bogeys across his very first 7 openings, but the five-time Masters champion rallied with a birdie at the eighth.

Complied with en masse throughout the day, the group nearly erupted as Woods damaged a stunning technique, just to be denied eagle by simple inches.

A fourth bogey at the 11th dropped him back to three over, however Woods seemed creating a final grow with back-to-back birdies at the 15th and also 16th openings. Yet having directly missed out on a birdie putt to raise him to even-par at the penultimate opening, Woods’ closing bogey worsened a frustrating mid-day.

Woods has actually missed the cut simply as soon as in his previous 24 looks at Augusta as well as would certainly connect Fred Couples as well as Gary Player for most consecutive cuts at the major need to he make it to the weekend break.

Nevertheless with a host of gamers making strong starts, Woods will likely require a resurgent 2nd round to accomplish the accomplishment.

” I seemed like I drove it excellent. I simply didn’t get the job done I need to do to obtain the round close,” Woods claimed. “Today was the opportune time to obtain the ball– get the round under the same level, as well as I didn’t do that today.

” Most of the men are going low today. This was the day to do it. With any luck tomorrow I’ll be a bit better, a little sharper, and also kind of inch my method with it.

” This is mosting likely to be a fascinating surface to the competition with the climate can be found in. If I can simply sort of hang tough, possibly sort of inch my way back, hopefully it will certainly be positive in the direction of the end.”
