Tiger Woods live score: Updated Masters leaderboard, results, highlights from Thursday’s Round 1

Tiger Woods is seeing green.

The five-time champion returns to Augusta National for his 26th appearance in the Masters, hoping to leave with a sixth green jacket — a feat that only Jack Nicklaus has accomplished thus far. 

Woods’ road back to the course hasn’t been easy. He’s been plagued by injuries, which nearly cost him his leg following a car accident in 2021. Despite the many challenges, Woods is going to play through the pain in an effort to continue being part of a game he loves. 

“I hurt every day,” Woods said in a press conference on Tuesday. “I ache every day. I prefer warm, humid, and hot [weather].”

We haven’t seen Woods on the course since he withdrew from the Genesis Invitational in February. Regardless, Woods’ quest to win the Masters for a sixth time begins at 1:24 p.m. ET, when he’ll tee off alongside Jason Day and Max Homa at Augusta National.

With storms expected to impact the opening round, Woods’ status will be something everyone has eyes on. The Sporting News is tracking Tiger’s scores, highlights, and placements from the first round of the 2024 Masters.

Tiger Woods live updates, highlights from Round 1 at 2024 Masters

(All times Eastern.)

Hole 4, Par 3

Shot 4: He settles for bogey, bringing his scorecard back to even through four. 

Shot 3: NEARLY! Woods just barely misses and should be able to tap in for bogey.

Shot 2: He can’t get that one to check up either, as the ball breezes by the hole and ends up four yards away.

Shot 1: While Max Homa went for the hole and Jason Day went for the trees — twice — Woods opted to play it safer off to the left. Unfortunately for him, that ball also missed the green.

Hole 3, Par 4

Shot 4: He taps it in, securing the par. While Woods might feel he’s missed some opportunities thus far, it’s hard to not be encouraged by the start. 

Shot 3: Woods leaves it a little high and will have to settle for another par.

Shot 2: The ball waves at the hole as it goes by, refusing to check up next to the flag. That leaves some more work to do, with a 12-foot putt coming up for birdie. 

Shot 1: He drops in another beauty off the tee, with just 23 yards left to go at the third hole. Woods avoided danger at the bunker, giving him a great chance to post a good number here.  

Hole 2, Par 5

Shot 5: SAVE! Woods knocks down the par with ease, keeping him at 1 under through the first two holes. 

Shot 4: Or maybe not. The fourth shot gives Woods a good chance to save par after landing the shot five feet from the hole. This would be a big save for him after taking one shot left handed.

Shot 3: His third shot lands beyond the green, landing amongst the paying fans in attendance. It might be tough to save par here at the second. 

Shot 2: Tiger found his ball hugging a tree after that rough tee shot. That’s no challenge for this golfing legend, however, who casually chips it back to the fairway with a left handed shot. Nicely done. 

Shot 1: Woods has, fittingly, found the woods after his second tee shot goes wayward. He’ll have plenty of work to do in order to continue this storybook beginning.

Hole 1, Par 4

The birdie on the opening hole was just the second time Woods has accomplished that feat at the Masters. The only other time he managed to do that was in 1999.

Shot 3: Back like he never left! Three perfect shots to open the day for Woods gets him a birdie to start his week at Augusta. 

Shot 2: Woods is coming out firing, landing his second shot to within eight feet of the pin.

Shot 1: A beautiful 272-yard drive off the tee sees Woods’ first shot land safely in the fairway. As he said on Tuesday, anything off the tee box is where he struggles. That’s where we’ll get a true gauge of how Tiger’s doing. 

3:53 p.m. — Woods is on the tee and we are ready to go. Let the show begin!

3:40 p.m. — Just 14 minutes separate us from the much anticipated drive off the tee from Woods. Here’s how it looked as he wrapped up some final preparations ahead of today’s round. 

3:15 p.m. — Tiger will be teeing off in about 40 minutes, but the weather delay from earlier will complicate matters for him. Because they’ll run out of daylight, Woods will have to finish his first round on Friday morning before teeing off for another 18 holes afterwards. With the injury complications, it remains to be seen how his body will hold up.
