Time Marches On – Can Tiger Turn the Clock Back?

Time Marches On – Can Tiger Turn the Clock Back?

Tiger may have returned to form, but can the 36-year-old muster enough to regain the Masters title?

Woods will be the center of attention when he tees off Thursday morning at Augusta National for the 76th Masters, seeking a fifth green jacket.  He has not won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open, and all eyes will be on him to see if he can turn the clock back.

Now on the comeback trail, Woods is fresh off his win at Bay Hill where he snapped a 2 1/2 year PGA drought.

But while Woods possesses 72 career PGA titles, he still considers himself as an underdog compared to a younger generation on his heels.

“Consistently, with this type of control, it has been a few years,” Woods said. “As far as having the speed and the pop in my game, it has been a very long time.”

“I would like the green jacket more,” Woods said. “I know the 73 would be a by-product of it, but I’m here for the green jacket.”

And as he progresses into more of a role model for the younger players coming up, he also comes to Augusta to provide advice to other players when needed. One such player is Sean O’Hair, his playing partner in Tuesday’s practice round.

“I help him as much as I possibly can. I think it’s just the role of being here as a champion and being here a number of years is that you pass knowledge on. It’s not something that we hold and are going to keep sacred. We pass it on from one generation to the next.”
