Tiger Woods will hit his opening tee shot at the Masters in front of a national television audience.
That could be the only shot we see him hit the rest of the day.
The Masters limits TV coverage of the first two rounds, allowing broadcasts to air only from 4-7 p.m. EST. According to the New York Times, Augusta National is allowing ESPN to broadcast Woods’ tee shot on No. 1, but nothing else until live coverage begins at 4 p.m.
If Woods draws an early tee time, he likely would complete his round before coverage begins.
Tee times will be announced Tuesday.
Only one spot left in field
The Masters field grew by five Wednesday.
K.J. Choi, Louis Ooosthuisen, Charles Schwartzel, Alvaro Quiros and Thongchai Jaide, a 40-year-old ex-Thai Army paratrooper, moved into the top 50 in the World Golf Rankings this week, earning an invitation to tee it up at Augusta National
The only way to get into the field now is to win the week’s Shell Houston Open.
