Tiger Woods will play his first two rounds in the Masters Tournament at 1:42 p.m. EST Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Woods will be in a group with Matt Kuchar and K.J. Choi of Korea; one face Tiger won't be seeing on the course is that of his wife Elin Nordegren, who he said will not be attending the tournament, his comeback into the golf world after a four-month-plus sabbatical in the wake of his cheating scandal.
Woods was seen practicing Tuesday with fellow golfer Mark O'Meara, and sources said he is looking to be razor-sharp with his swings and putts.
Despite his troubles, Woods is still the favorite, according to Las Vegas odds makers, who have placed the four-time Masters champion as most likely to win this year, as well.
