It has somehow been 19 months since Tiger Woods won his fifth green jacket in April 2019 in front of a roaring crowd, but the long-awaited 2020 Masters has finally returned under very unsual circumstances.
The typical blooming azaleas have been replaced by brown and red leaves, there will be no fans and golfers will play off of both tees in order to compensate for the roughly two-and-a-half hours of less sunlight than there is in April.
Despite winning the Masters in 2019, Woods has struggled since returning to the Tour after the pandemic hiatus. He last played at the Zozo Championship in October, tying for 72nd. His best finish since the pandemic hiatus was 37th in the PGA Championship, 12 strokes behind the winner.
Woods turned in a score of 4-under 68 on Thursday, and will return with Shane Lowry and Andy Ogletree for an afternoon tee-off in Round 2.
Here’s everything you need to know to tune in and watch Tiger Woods at the 2020 Masters:
