Before Tiger Woods teed off on Sunday, a colleague asked me to predict the 14-time major champion’s final-round score. I said, with much optimism, “66.” Unfortunately for Woods, I correctly called what Rory McIlroy shot — the other guy wearing Nike that played alongside Tiger on Sunday at the Masters.

Woods, who has won four green jackets, posted a lackluster one-over 73 to finish at five-under for the championship, dropping him down the leaderboard 12 spots from T5 to T17.

Another day, another scoring record set by Jordan Spieth. The 21-year-old Texan fired a two-under 70 to post a total of 16-under, 200, for the lowest 54-hole score in Masters history, breaking the previous record held by none other than Tiger Woods in 1997 and Raymond Floyd in 1976.

Halt the obituaries and farewell tour columns — Tiger Woods showed on Friday at the Masters that he’s not “done.” In fact, he can still play golf pretty well. Woods, who posted a one-over 73 in the first round, shot a three-under 69 for his first sub-70 score at Augusta National since 2011.

Coming into the season’s first major at Augusta National, Jordan Spieth was the hottest player with two runner-up finishes and a win in his last three starts on the PGA Tour. He kept his strong form going in the opening round of the Masters, firing an impressive eight-under 64 to take a three-shot lead over Charley Hoffman, Justin Rose, Ernie Els and Jason Day.

Tiger Woods and his Olympic skier girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, along with his adorable children Sam and Charlie, who were in his caddies in the Masters Par-3 Contest, stole the spotlight for most of the festivities on Wednesday afternoon. It was the first time Woods decided to be a regular human being like his fellow competitors and play in the fun and lighthearted event since 2004.

While all eyes were on Woods and his family, Jack Nicklaus took center stage when he aced the 123-yard fourth hole, with his shot landing past the pin and spinning back into the cup. At 75 years young, Nicklaus showed he’s still got game. Interesting enough, it was Nicklaus’ first hole-in-one at Augusta National — on either course — in 56 years of playing here.

Tiger Woods feels that he’s ready to play — and most important, compete — at this week’s Masters. A cheery and particularly upbeat Woods, who wasn’t certain to make the start until his official announcement last Friday, created a stir on Monday afternoon when he showed up at Augusta National to practice and play 11 holes, especially for his dance moves as he rocked out to some hip-hop on the chipping/pitching range.

Considering Woods hasn’t been spotted publicly on the golf course since February 5 when he withdrew after 11 holes in the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open, Woods’ game reportedly looked quite sharp. He also spent a significant amount of time working on his chipping in the practice area and on the golf course.

Or, wait? Perhaps the nightmare is just starting? As we know, anything that involves Tiger Woods creates more chaos and the present situation only amplifies it, but one thing’s for sure, Augusta National will be abuzz with Woods’ return next week at the Masters.

Following a report that Tiger Woods was back on the practice range at Augusta National on Friday after he shot a 74 on Tuesday at the oh-so-hallowed grounds of the season’s first major, Woods announced via his website that it was official — he is indeed returning to competition at the Masters.

Tiger Woods was hitting balls on the driving range at Augusta National on Friday morning, according to Golf Channel. This comes just a few days after his plane was spotted at Augusta Regional Airport on Tuesday and his agent confirmed he played 18 holes at the site of next week’s Masters — he reportedly shot a 74, while making five birdies but hitting “several indifferent chips.”
