20 Masters champions: Sergio Garcia (2017); Danny Willett (2016); Jordan Spieth (2015); Bubba Watson (2012, 2014); Adam Scott (2013); Charl Schwartzel (2011); Phil Mickelson (2004, 2006, 2010); Angel Cabrera (2009); Trevor Immelman (2008); Zach Johnson (2007); Tiger Woods (1997, 2001, 2002, 2005); Mike Weir (2003); Vijay Singh (2000); Mark O'Meara (1998); Jose Maria Olazabal (1994); Bernhard Langer (1993); Fred Couples (1992); Ian Woosnam (1991); Sandy Lyle (1988); and Larry Mize (1987).
"A few years on and I get to play with him and I don't think you can get a better draw than Tiger at the Masters". Woods ranks No. 36 for driving distance and his tee shots average 304 yards, well above the tour average of 295 yards. Unlike that failed foursomes match they played at Oakland Hills in the 2004 Ryder Cup, Mickelson had to play the next shot, too.
The slippage started when Woods pushed his drive at the par-4 11th way right.
"I've had great practice rounds here", he said. "We had a five-hole stretch".
And no target is more tantalizing than Woods once again playing at his best.
This year's U.S. Open will be held at Shinnecock Hills, the breathtaking course in the Hamptons, and the golf historians among us will remember that's where, 14 years ago, the greens rolled like marble and Retief Goosen issued Mickelson a hard defeat.
Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy, who could complete a career Grand Slam with a first Masters victory, tees it up at 1:38 p.m. alongside Rahm and former Masters champion Adam Scott of Australia.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: 'Alexandre Lacazette is ready to start'
The Gunners won 3-0 at the Emirates against Stoke and all the goals came late in the match. I have not decided he will start but he is available and ready to start".
Woods, who missed the last two Masters because of back issues, was followed by hordes of supporters all day but he was unable to deliver the type of roar-inspiring shots he once did easily at Augusta National. Dustin Johnson is the world's top-ranked player.
You can watch live coverage and interviews from Augusta National each morning. While it's impossible to predict the outcome, I do believe it will be exciting.
But it's not just with Mickelson. Jason Day won the week after that.
Long hitters, strong putters and aggressive players. Padraig Harrington hardly recognized Woods at Torrey Pines earlier this year when he saw him walk onto the range, exchange a few high-fives and stop to chat. Thomas Pieters finished fourth in his Masters debut a year ago.
"I might be as competitive as him, in some ways more so".
It's the first time since 2015 - the last time Woods played - that prices have gone over $6,000.
Perhaps, as Harrington suggested, he simply has mellowed.
That it took Woods until he was in his 40s to be able to relate to most of his fellow players - and some of his fans - isn't all that surprising for anyone who has read the exhaustive new biography "Tiger Woods" that details his great successes and biggest lows. "This is just like a fraternity". "I've got to go play and then let the chips fall where they may". So that obviously includes all the countries from which the players come from, so: US, UK, Canada, Australia, Spain, Japan, South Korea, China, India, South Africa, Thailand, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela and Fiji.
