It was one of the most anticipated Masters ever. And, at the tournament's conclusion the lofty expectations were justified.
Tiger Woods, a Masters winner in 1997, drove down Magnolia Lane with one mission in mind: become the first golfer ever to win four consecutive professional majors. Standing in Woods's way were the world's greatest golfers, and at the end two of those players met Tiger on Augusta National's fabled second-nine for a memorable battle. Join Tiger, David Duval, and Phil Mickelson on Sunday as they play Amen Corner and the course's pivotal finishing holes. Join the patrons as they cheer each birdie, and groan at each missed opportunity.
Start your Masters week Wednesday with the Par 3 Contest and witness a record-tying four holes-in-one. Thursday means the Honorary Starters ceremony and a chance to say goodbye to Byron Nelson as he hits his final ball to begin the Masters. Later that day you'll see first-year player Chris DiMarco as he grabs the opening round lead, becoming the third consecutive Masters rookie to top the leader board after the initial 18 holes. On Friday it's DiMarco on top again, but those that believe in fate take note of Woods' opening rounds of 70-66--the identical scores he posted during the first two rounds in 1997. Then it's on to Saturday where Tiger moves atop the field in preparation for Sunday's fireworks.
