Tiger Woods won the Masters four times in his first nine starts as a professional. It appeared he might surpass 10 green jackets, as Jack Nicklaus had suggested in 1995. But then an odd drought set in, and Woods hasn’t won at Augusta National since 2005. Woods hadn't won anywhere on the PGA Tour in almost three and a half years until last week. Does that mean he is back? Will you be rooting for him at the Masters this week? 

The numbers that matter to Woods, though, are 5 and 18. He’s eager to win his fifth Masters title. Stuck on 14 majors for almost four years, he can again see Nicklaus’ record 18 with clear eyes.

If he were to succeed this week, he would tie Nicklaus for second most Tour victories, 73. But that’s not what’s in the front of his mind.

“I’d like the green jacket more,” he said. “I know the 73 would be a byproduct of it, but I’m here for the green jacket.”
