His sixth effort found the green and he holed the putt for the octuple-bogey 13, the joint worst score on any hole at the Masters and the highest on the 15th, his title defense in ruins after a nine-over 81. But he drained a sweeping, super-fast, downhill putt for another birdie.

Woods turned 42 at the end of a year ago. After spinal fusion surgery to stabilize his back, it is Tiger's time once again. It was a frustrating start for the 2015 Masters champion and opened the door for everyone else on the leaderboard.
