2022 Masters: Tiger Woods Shoots Under Par in First Round

In his first professional outing since the devastating car accident last year, Tiger Woods has come out swinging in the 2022 Masters.

The 46-year-old golf star shot a 1-under-par 71 in the first round at Augusta National today. He was three strokes behind Australian golfer Cameron Smith. Smith gained the early lead on Woods by shooting a 4-under-par 68.

After much speculation about whether or not Woods would return to the Masters this year following his accident, which stemmed from his sudden appearance at Augusta National in Georgia a couple of weeks ago, it has now been confirmed. The golf legend seeks to add another Masters championship to his resume.

Throughout the first round, Woods birdied three holes and bogeyed two. It was not his best performance, however, as he went over par following five consecutive pars in the first round. Whether Woods was shaky after taking the course for the first time in 100 weeks or not, is open to interpretation.

The 2022 Masters is scheduled to continue until Saturday, April 10, when the final results will be known. If Woods performs his magic which golf fans have seen him do for a quarter-century, his sixth Masters championship will be under his belt.
