Woods Falls Short at 2010 Masters

Tiger Woods made his much anticipated return to golf at the 2010 Masters Tournament. Woods came to Augusta National in an attempt to win his 5th Green Jacket and his 15th major Championship. Despite shooting his lowest opening round of his career at the Masters, woods inconsistent play over the weekend coast him the championship.

Woods did have some high notes at the 2010 Masters. He set the masters record for eagles with four, he recorded his best 72-hole score at the Masters in his career and he never dropped out of the top 10 during the entire tournament. Overall Woods played very well considering he had a 144 day layoff from the game. Tigers top 4 finish was of little consolation to the 4-time masters Champion “I entered this event and I only enter events to win and I didn’t get it done,” he told reporters. “I’m going to take a little time off and kind of reevaluate things.”

Speculation mounted as to where and when Woods will play his next tournament following the Masters. On April 13th Woods officially entered the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach where Woods won the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in record fashion by posting a 15 shot victory to win his 3rd major championship. Woods also entered the 2010 Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte North Carolina where woods is a 2-Time Champion.

Television ratings show that the golf fans missed Tiger Woods. Despite his off the course struggles the mainstream golf fan is happy to see that he is back on the course and competing again. Tiger Woods is the face of the game of golf and as he works to rebuild his family and address the issues and challenges in his personal life, the more events he plays the better off the world of golf will be. Welcome back Tiger. Good Luck as your 2010 season moves forward.
