|Tiger Hits the Links for Masters Practice
|AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Tiger Woods wasted no time getting some practice in for his return to golf, teeing off shortly after the course opened as fans streamed in by the thousands to get a look.
Woods and Fred Couples were off in the second group just after 8 a.m. Monday on a pristine day at Augusta National. The two played down the first fairway before most fans even got into position to see the world's best player preparing for the start of the Masters.
Woods also practiced the day before, getting a big hug from an old friend, along with some encouraging words for his return to competition at the Masters.
