You know what time it is just by clicking the video. The Masters, the year's first major and signpost that spring has arrived, starts Thursday. Tiger comes in off an impressive win at Bay Hill where he finally found his putting stroke, sinking an incredible 90% of his putts from 10 feet and in. Other intriguing numbers are that he lead the field in par 5 scoring, a stat he long dominated because of his ability to move the ball down the fairway and leave himself excellent eagle/birdie opportunities. For Tiger to come up successful this weekend he will need to maintain that consistent putting form (his feel and lag putting was reminiscent of when he was playing incredibly well in the early to mid 2000s) and limit his wayward driving by maintaining a still head through impact. I see -8 to -10 being the winning range this year at Augusta.
