AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Tiger Woods is climbing up the leaderboard in the opening round of the Masters. He shot a 3-under 33 over the first nine holes in his return from a sex scandal.
Woods made a 10-footer for eagle at No. 8, bouncing back from his lone bogey on the front side at Augusta National on Thursday. He followed with an even more brilliant birdie. Woods hit a 5-iron around the pine trees to set up a 12-foot putt that drew a roar from the crowd as he made the turn. He is just two strokes behind the leaders.
