Everything is good: Woods

Everything is good: Woods

World No. 1 Tiger Woods arrived at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday to begin a challenging week that he hopes will culminate in a fifth Masters title and a 15th major championship victory.

Fifty years to the day since Jack Nicklaus won his first Masters title, the man trying to break Nicklaus’ record of 18 major crowns spent about 20 minutes on the practice range and played a practice round with pal Steve Stricker.

‘I feel great,’ Woods said. ‘Everything is good.’  Woods is the only three-time winner on tour this season after triumphs at Torrey Pines, Doral and Bay Hill and tops the money list with $3.8 million ahead of his 19th Masters start.  Woods, 37, has not won a major since the 2008 US Open and last won the Masters in 2005. His other Masters titles came in 1997, 2001 and 2002.

On the day before the first public practice session ahead of Thursday’s start of the 77th Masters, ticket brokers were already lined along the highway leading to the course hoping the cash in on the event’s popularity.
