Tiger Mania has gripped the Masters in a way that may make even his breakout 1997 victory, his 2001 Tiger Slam triumph and his 2010 return from personal scandal seem quaint. At 42, Woods appears healthy for the first time in years. He even came in second in a tournament last month. After years of being derailed with injuries, he’s a contender again.
This is the most anticipated Masters in a long time and while the storylines are everywhere, Woods is the main event. Part nostalgia, part hope, no one wants to miss a single bit of it.
