Masters Day 1: Tiger Woods Returned, And Order Was Restored
AUGUSTA, Ga. -- AP -- Of all the 6,576 shots that were officially struck at Augusta National on Day 1 of the Masters, only one truly mattered. It didn't go in the hole. It wasn't down the center of the fairway. Nothing special about it at all, really. Except for the fact that it was off a club swung by Tiger Woods.
With his opening tee shot at 11:04 a.m. Thursday, the Masters was truly back to normal. The full allotment of patrons watched a man who could have lost a leg, or his life, in a car crash 15 months ago return to the spot of his past glory.
