AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Thousands of fans are following Tiger Woods around Augusta National during practice rounds. Millions more around the world will be able to watch when he officially makes his return to golf at the Masters on Thursday.
Woods was put in the next-to-last group for the opening round -- his first meaningful shot since his private life unraveled in sordid tales of infidelity five months ago. His 1:42 p.m. tee time fits perfectly into ESPN's live television coverage.
Joining the world's No. 1 player will be K.J. Choi and Matt Kuchar.
