CBS Getting Criticized For Early Masters Coverage On Saturday

Security guard almost takes out Tiger Woods during Masters Tiger takes centre stage at Augusta

Tiger Woods during the third round of the Masters.

If you are inclined to care about an extraordinary performer on an extraordinary stage under extraordinary circumstances, do not miss a minute of this.

Molinari played with Woods on the final day at Carnoustie last summer and outplayed the 14-time major champion amid a crowded leaderboard to win the British Open.

Tiger Woods and Tony Finau were two shots back, while Brooks Koepka was another shot behind. "But that's not going to be the case. We will see if he is able to get out in front and hold them off".

Francesco Molinari was the only player ahead of Woods when the 43-year-old finished, the Italian duly opening up a two-shot lead at 13 under with a birdie at the 15th.

Day, the 2015 US PGA champion, struggled to walk Thursday after suffering a recurrence of a back injury as he kissed his young daughter before the first round.

Be it Greg Norman's meltdown, Phil Mickelson's awkward leap, Tiger Woods' chip on 16 or Jordan Spieth smoking all comers, we have all watched bleary-eyed as that famous green jacket has been claimed.

But at his age, Woods isn't interested in peering too deep into the future.

"As a kid, I always wanted to compete against him and have the opportunity to. you know, I've dreamed of playing in the final group with him in a major championship". Just put the ball in the correct spots so I can have gettable looks and gettable putts. Maybe Tiger needed a dramatic change in the competition to end his drought.

Tiger Woods completed his best round at Augusta since 2011 to ensure he will be firmly in contention heading into the final round of the Masters. He's now one round away from swapping the caddie's jumpsuit for a green jacket. He laid up to 70 yards, then pitched close for his fourth birdie of the day.

But when they get it right, they get it right.

"The Masters announced on Saturday evening that it will move up Sunday's tee times in an effort to avoid storms headed to the Augusta, Ga., area".

Patrick Cantlay of the U.S. hits off the 2nd tee during the second day of practice for the 2019 Masters golf tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, U.S., April 9, 2019.

President Trump and golf fans everywhere, will have to tune-in earlier to catch Sunday's action at the Masters. What this could mean, historically, is worth it.

The 29-year-old from Northern Ireland stumbled to his second consecutive one-under par 71 in Friday's third round at Augusta National, walking off on one-under 215 and eight strokes adrift of leaders after a closing bogey.

Woods said the other day that he proved to himself - with victory No. 80 - that he could win again.
