Before thousands of enthusiastic spectators Tiger Woods has set a strong training round on Monday in Augusta. At the US Masters, the 46-year-old from Thursday around 13 months after his car accident, in which he had suffered heavy leg injuries, there was hardly any comeback.
Nine holes together with golf legend couples
Under the applause of the audience, Woods played together with the former PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas and Fred Couples, who won the Master’s Masters, a total of nine holes. The 15-color Major winner was “phenomenal” and “very impressive”, said Couples, who is convinced by Woods’ participation in Augusta: “If he runs around here 72 holes long, then he will also compete.”
“Tiger came out of the clubhouse. There were scenes and an atmosphere, as you never saw you before,” wrote the three-time Masters winner Nick Faldo at Twitter: “The guests were cried and crushed around the Putting Green – and that Monday before Masters start. “
“From the Driving Range we could hear the loud roar”
When Woods entered the square, Bryson Dechambeau, US Open Champion of 2020 also trained. “From the Driving Range we could hear the loud roar when he went to the first tee,” said the American: “That was already something very special. “
Woods leaves the golf world so far in the unclear whether he is actually playing the master. He only wanted to continue his preparation and training, he had written on Sunday at Twitter. His name is at least on the report list. As a former winner of the Green Jacket, the former world ranking resident has a lifelong start-up law.
