Woods has blistered back nine before


AUGUSTA, Ga. – With his birdie at the ninth hole Sunday at the Masters, Tiger Woods made the turn to the back nine just three shots off the lead.

Remember that 30 Woods shot on the back nine in the first round of 1997? Can he do that again? If he does, he’ll post a 65 today, equaling his lowest score at the Masters.

In '97, Woods turned his fortunes around on the back nine. He started even worse than he did today. He shot 40 on his first nine of the opening round of '97. His 30 on the back nine ignited a run that led to his 12-shot romp.
