He’s already making some noise through two rounds at Augusta National, but when does Tiger tee off Saturday? Tiger Woods’ tee time for the third round of the Masters is 2:05 p.m. ET. He’ll play alongside Ian Poulter and begin the day one shot off the lead.
Woods came into the week at the 2019 Masters feeling positive about his game. He was ranked No. 12 in the world, and many betting outlets had his Masters odds pegged at 12/1, good enough for third-best in the field.
Tiger teed off Thursday morning at 11:04 a.m. ET, opening his Masters campaign with a powerful drive down the middle of the fairway of Augusta National’s 1st hole. He then made birdie at the par-5 2nd to get into red numbers quickly in Thursday’s first round. After a disappointing bogey at the recently-lengthened 5th hole, Tiger charged back with birdies at 9, 13, and 14 to reach three under and tie for the early Masters lead.
He came back to earth with a late bogey at 17. In the end, Woods fired a two-under 70 in the opening round. That left him four shots behind first-round co-leaders Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka.
He often has a tough time in opening rounds at majors, so Woods had to feel good about his position on the leaderboard after Round 1. He also opened with a 70 in his first three Masters victories.
Tiger teed off for the second round at 1:49 p.m ET on Friday. He traded birdies and bogeys over the front nine in Round 2, before making the first birdie of the week on the difficult 11th hole. That moved Woods to four under for the tournament. Then rain and lightning got in the way, suspending play at one point Friday evening. But Woods rallied with back-to-back birdies at 14 and 15 to finish the round with a 68, leaving him one shot off the lead through 36 holes.
Woods has captured four Masters titles in his long and storied career. The first came in 1997, when a skinny 21-year-old Tiger Woods demolished Augusta National, winning by 12 shots to earn his first major victory. His second and third Masters titles came back-to-back in 2001 and 2002. He won his fourth and most recent green jacket at the 2005 Masters.
