Woods finally birdies first hole on a Saturday


AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tiger Woods may own Saturdays at the Masters, but the first hole’s owned him.

Until today.

For the first time since he began playing the Masters in 1995,Woods birdied the first hole in the third round. It’s odd because his best rounds have always come on Saturdays at Augusta National. His lowest scores here are a pair of 65s. They both came on Saturdays.

Woods rolled in a 15-footer for the opening birdie on this Saturday.

The first hole is Woods’ nemesis every round. He’s birdied it just three times over the 61 rounds he has played at the Masters. He’s bogeyed the hole 16 times and double bogeyed it once.
