- Woods says just playing at Augusta feels like a victory
- American hits creditable one under par round of 71
A bullish Tiger Woods declared himself “right where I need to be” after marking his remarkable recovery from serious injury with a one-under-par round of 71 at the Masters.
Woods, having not played competitive golf since November 2020 and 14 months on from a serious car crash that left him fearing his lower right leg may need to be amputated, commanded huge gallery support on day one at Augusta National. The crowds were left impressed: Woods made three birdies and two bogeys to sit just four shots from the lead. He has victory in his sights.
