Tiger Woods was back at the Masters today after being away from golf for 18 months. He shot a solid round with an exclamation point.
Five-time Masters champion Woods played in Group 14, alongside South African Louis Oosthuizen and Chilean Joaquin Niemann, after the first round of the 2022 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club tournament was delayed due to inclement weather in Augusta, Georgia.
Wearing a pink shirt, Woods was given a resounding round of applause from the crowd as his name was announced. After hitting his opening drive, Woods received more cheers from fans…
…Woods displayed some of the fight he’s become so famous for over his illustrious career on the 16th hole, rolling in a tricky putt for another birdie — a trademark fistpump in celebration — to move to one under to the delight of the thousands watching on.
Despite a wayward tee shot on the 18th hole, Woods managed to salvage a par, meaning he carded a one-under par 71, which signaled a solid return to competitive golf after almost 17 months away.
Tiger was caught on camera during the round dropping an F-bomb.
He’s 1000% back baby https://t.co/JWyTFmG7eY

Some people can relate to Tiger’s choice of words on the course.
That’s about the only thing Tiger and I have in common on the golf course.
