What Tiger Woods Told Massachusetts Firefighter Who Will Play In Masters

2018 Masters: predictions, betting odds and live TV details Aggressive McIlroy bids to tame healthy Tiger at Masters

Over the past few days, the reigning U.S. Mid-Amateur champion has been in touch with Tiger Woods' caddie, Joe LaCava, about playing a practice round on the eve of the Masters.

And yet, like Woods and all the great golfers of that generation, the young guns are driven by the same championship ethos: that to be the best, you have to beat the best.

Which is why every year come Masters week golf fans, sports fans and fans of things that are flawless flip on the television, groove themselves into the couch and stare into a world where it looks like everything is just so ... right. Maybe they'll do it under the approving eye of a gathering of green jacket members that is at least a little more reflective of the world outside its charmed green bubble.

After months of anticipation, Tiger Woods is finally back at Augusta.

When it comes to sponsors, Neilsen ranks Woods as the top revenue generator in the golfing world.

Bridgestone Golf, which has partnered with Woods since 2016, can attest to the effect. Finau flew his ball to the back of the seventh green on the Par-3 course at Augusta National and spun it back into the hole for an ace. Thus far, Woods has been unflinching.

Though the game's once most-dominating player sits well below the trio - at 103rd in those same rankings - they're all looking up at Tiger Woods again.

Justin Rose probably should have won last year's Masters, were it not for an untimely bogey on the 71st hole and the magic of Sergio Garcia.

Woods talked Tuesday about how his swing speeds are still what they were before he hurt his back and he showed he cannot only keep up with the younger players off the tee but sometimes hit it past them. There are extremely hard putts to follow. It was unusual. And I find that I want him to play well, and I'm excited to see him play so well.

Woods will be in one of four featured groups Thursday on Masters.com and the Masters app, meaning his entire round will be streamed.

Wheels Up says that customers order private flights to events like The Masters as late as 24 hours ahead of time, and that some are still ordering flights for the weekend.

Finau dislocated his left ankle celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par-3 Tournament on Wednesday and then popped it back into place.

Then about a decade ago, Woods began to fade from the game, driven to the sidelines by marital scandal and debilitating back injuries, which limited his ability to play at a high level. "It was the pressure that I have to go get it", said two time Masters Champion Bubba Watson.

Nicklaus' grandson, son of Gary, himself a former PGA Tour player, knew he was going to get a chance to play one hole for his grandfather, so getting to play wasn't a surprise, just the outcome.

The average high for the Masters is 75 F (24 C), and the average low is 48 F (9 C), so Thursday will be almost 10 degrees below average.

Since McIlroy imploded during the final nine holes of the 2011 Masters, he has made no secret of the fact that he believes his game is well suited to the Augusta course and he is clearly desperate to wipe that aberration from his memory. In his four victories, his scoring average is 71 (three 70s and a 74). Does the world not remember him draining putts down the stretch at the British Open previous year? Since 1999, all but three winners have been in the top 10 in greens.

At No. 15, Woods will need to avoid the water near the green and attack the flagstick. He was 12 shots behind after two rounds.

Although he traditionally has more rounds under his belt at this point in the season, Woods's performances have been nothing but encouraging, even for skeptics.
