There are a host of storylines for this year’s Augusta Masters, plots that have made this tournament arguably the most hyped in its storied history.

But since his runner-up at the Valspar Championship, the Tiger Woods narrative is the only one that’s mattered. It borders on fantasy; some still can’t believe, with all he’s been through, that it’s actually happening.

It’s all been building up to this, Tiger Woods’ latest comeback. It began with a glimmer of hope in December at the Hero World Challenge, albeit soaked in reservation. Yet it—“it” being anticipation, fervor, nostalgia, and every other emotion the man conjures—gained viability at Torrey Pines, took a leap forward at PGA National and came off the rails at Innisbrook and Bay Hill. Tiger was back, and more importantly, would be back at the Masters.

“Can Woods win his fifth green jacket?” It’s been asked ad nauseam the past decade, but for once, an ominous tone isn’t attached.

Personally I always love seeing Freddie “Boom Boom” Couples on the first page of the leaderboard the first few rounds, hopefully he can sustain it for all 4 this yr
