How to watch the Masters on ESPN and ESPN+

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods isn’t just back, he’s in the conversation at the 86th Masters. He opened with a methodical 1-under 71 in the opening round Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club.

He had an early tee time Thursday. He heads out in the late wave Friday, alongside Joaquin Niemann. The third in the group, Louis Oosthuizen, withdrew before the second round began with an injury. Woods left the course Thursday tied for 10th and 4 behind the lead. On Friday, anything can happen. He could make a charge, move to the middle of the pack or be in a fight to make the cut.
