WATCH: Tiger Woods is dialled in around the greens at Augusta

Tiger Woods has made so much history at Augusta that his name is forever linked with The Masters.

He was unable to make more happy memories at the 2024 edition of the famous tournament, however, carding the worst round of his major career on Saturday.

But that was after he had posted scores of 73 and 72 to make the cut for a record 24th consecutive time cut at Augusta National, 

He finished the weekend 16 over par and clearly struggled to get through the four rounds, but he still managed to delight the crowds at Augusta.


Some of his approach play might have been considered a little wayward, but Tiger was still prowling when it comes to his play around the green.

Check out the expert control on display during his first round.


This weekend is the first time Woods has played more than 18 holes in a tournament since November 2019, when he played 29 holes over a long Sunday before winning his 82nd PGA Tour title the next day.

Dame Laura Davies was encouraged by what she saw from the 48-year-old, telling Sky Sports after his first round: “It was a fantastic effort.

“We weren’t worried about his golf – he’d been hitting it well on the range all week – but could he walk round the course? He looked really solid. By the end of the day, he was still striding out.

“He only hit seven of 13 greens, but his short game really saved him… it was mustard today. He had some really difficult chips and handled them beautifully on 11 and 12, getting up and down and saving pars.

“If he can get a couple early tomorrow, three under or two under would be a great start for Tiger.”
