Tiger Woods had to wait four months for this opportunity? Big deal, Fred Couples and Tom Watson had to wait a combined 110 years. Tiger's opening-round 68 stole most of the headlines at Augusta on Thursday, at least those not occupied by his somewhat creepy commercial and spoofs of his commercial. But Couples has the lead at 50 years old, and Tom Watson came close to shooting his age with an opening-round 67.
All the same, SportsNation bloggers weren't piling up words talking about Couples and Watson. But they were sounding off on Woods' fresh start. Predict Tiger's second-round scorecard.
I am waiting for the imbeciles who wished he would miss the cut spew hate after an incredible round. He did, however, look a little awkward restraining himself, but it's to be expected. And what a job by the Augusta crew setting up the course for a stacked leaderboard, it should be a great weekend.” -- goldenboy1n3
I can only wonder what happened to all the Tiger bashers that thought he was done and his golf game would never return...where did they all go? Must be hard to sit and stew for 5 months about Tiger being done and all when he just got done playing his best opening round at the Master's. No better way to shut up the perfect-living whiners that post here. Thank you Tiger.” -- MauiFaka
