Tiger Woods Return: History Of 2010 US Masters Tournament
Woods Making A Comeback At 2010 US Masters Tournament
Tiger Woods has confirmed his attendance at the 2010 US Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club. The tournament that runs April 8-11 will start off the 2010 season for Woods, who took a leave from golf in the wake of the sex scandal that shook his marriage. On his website, Woods said he felt ready to start his season after taking a "long and necessary time" away from the game.
The History Of US Masters Tournament
Since 1937, the tournament takes place in April of every year at Augusta National Golf Club Course in Georgia. US Masters is the first of the majors to be played each year. The event is invitational and limited to a small field of golfers. The winner of the tournament gets to don the famous Green Jacket, which symbolizes honourary membership to the elite and privately owned Augusta National Golf Club. The jackets have to be returned at the end of the first year after the victory. The champion is helped into the jacket by the previous year's winner. The Silver Cup is presented annually to the lowest-scoring amateur to make the cut. Each year on the Tuesday evening preceding the first round, a dinner is held to honour the past champions of the tournament – the Champion’s Dinner.
Tiger Woods won US Masters four times in his career. The last time Woods played professionally was at JBWere Masters in Melbourne, November 12-15, 2009, which he has won. Golf enthusiasts are eager to see what shape Woods will be in at US Masters and whether the scandal had any toll on his training.
