Tiger and the Golfing Stars Ready For Augusta

All the stars are ready to tee off in the Masters on Thursday, including Tiger Woods.
He missed last year’s tournament following back surgery.
And he returns to Augusta having played only 47 holes this season on tour.
 Augusta is excited to have Tiger back, and Tiger is excited to be back.
He was in full Freddie Freeman hug mode when he showed up on Monday.
"There is no other tournament in the world like this. To come back to a place that I have had so many great memories at. We all know what happened in ’97 with my dad’s health. He was pronounced. Well, he was dead at one point earlier that year. He came back, and he came here, and I won the Masters. Now I have come full circle. Having a chance to have my kids out there and be able to share that with them. It’s special."
   Tiger’s game used to be special. But he enters the Masters not having played a pro event in over two months.
"People would never understand how much work I put into it to come back and do this again. It was sun-up to sundown."
    Tiger hopes Augusta will bring out his best, and veteran Phil Mickelson also has the same wish.
"This last year-and-a-half has not been my best. It has been terrible. I think driving down Magnolia Lane is rejuvenating. It gives me a new energy. It’s exciting."
   Rory McIroy is one of the favorites having won the last two majors.
And he’s going to try and overpower Augusta.
"If you look at the previous winners here, they have all played the par five’s well. Bubba (Watson) last year played them at eight-under-par. I played them at even par, and he beat me by eight shots."
