Tiger Woods hopes he can put the pieces together quickly enough to successfully defend his Masters title and in doing so equal Jack Nicklaus’ record of six wins.
The 15-times major winner will play with Ireland’s Shane Lowry and American amateur Andy Ogletree on day one at Augusta on Thursday, November 12.
The 15-time Major champion is in no mood to accept the glory days are behind him.
We all belong. Such wonderful news to hear from Augusta National in celebration of Lee Elder. https://t.co/OAIKQGvmt6

On April 13, 1997, 21-year-old Tiger Woods won the prestigious Masters Tournament by a record 12 strokes in Augusta, Georgia.
It was Woods’ first victory in one of golf’s four major championships—the U.S. Open, the British Open, the PGA Championship, and the Masters—and the greatest performance by a professional golfer in more than a century.
It also made him the youngest golfer by two years to win the Masters and the first person of Asian or African heritage to win a major.
Eldrick “Tiger” Woods was born in a suburb of Los Angeles, California, on December 30, 1975.
The only child of an African American father and a Thai mother, Woods was encouraged from infancy by his father for a career in golf.
