Excitement builds over Tiger's return to Augusta

The Masters is the most special golf tournament in the world, no matter who is playing in it.

Paul Dunne, however, sits just one place behind Lowry in 78th place and the Greystones native had been steadily climbing the rankings, before breaking into the top 100 with victory in last year's British Masters.

For golf fans, there's nothing like watching Tiger Woods in his Sunday red, roaring through the back nine and contending at a golf tournament. From there, 80 winners across the four age divisions earned a trip to Augusta National. "Six months ago, the odds were I wasn't even going to play". "I think that's the thing that's really holding me back". For the most part, he has competed with a smile on his face and also played the game in a manner that has always had the potential to be exciting. But it is unlikely to find favour with McIlroy. In true Tiger fashion, he made birdie. After eventual group victor Tip Price made what turned out to be the clinching putt, the Masters champion offered advice to the lad. "I like my game".

Therein resides the crux for McIlroy next week. Critics will point out he bogeyed two of his last three holes, but that's not the point.

"They haven't made too many changes at Augusta so the players will know the course well and what awaits them".

Dunne secured a PGA Tour career first in being officially credited with the first-round lead when he returned to play four holes of his delayed first round to post an eight-under par 64 to lead the $7m event by a shot.

One year later, he endured another Saturday blow-up, a triple-bogey at 11 and double-bogey at 15 (he was in the water at both) contributing to an ugly 79. But Thomas knows Woods' history at Augusta, where he shares the tournament scoring record of 18-under 270 with Jordan Spieth.

"I'm not that superstitious to try to do everything like I did previous year", said Garcia.

He told Jack Nicklaus at the Champions Dinner previous year how much he was hurting, and Nick Faldo was struck by the negative tone. "If you don't read it with painstaking care, you are in trouble". Katie asks. "Really green".

A year after losing a play-off to Sergio Garcia at the Masters, Justin Rose declared himself ready to finally to claim the coveted green jacket as he prepared for a final tune-up at the Houston Open.

While the odds have been against him for years, they're now in his favor.

So now that Beth is going, there's one consistent message. Watson proved he could reach angles no one else could in 2014 when he hit a 350-yard drive on the par-5 13th hole over the tree line, leaving him with just a wedge onto the green. "He comes alive at Augusta".

According to betting site MyBookie.ag, Woods, who will be making his first appearance at the Masters since 2015, only slightly trails tournament-favorite Rory McIlroy and is even at No. 2 with two other contenders.

The newspaper said that's a 77 percent increase over a year ago; Woods hasn't played the tournament since 2015. "But I appreciate it". Breaking 70 for fun with your buddies is one thing, doing so four times in four days under tournament conditions is something entirely different.

The participants seemed appreciative of what was taking place, from the celebratory dinner on Saturday evening-attended by defending Masters champion Sergio Garcia-to the the pomp and circumstance of parading around Augusta National's practice area and 18th green.
