Tiger Woods faces playing 23 holes at the Masters on Friday with his first round halted at the 13th hole on one-under par – but the five-time winner impresses on day one at Augusta

Tiger Woods ended day one of the Masters on one-under par at the 13th, with  bad weather forcing a two-and-a-half hour delay at Augusta on Thursday.

Woods will be back out at 7:45am local time Friday morning to wrap up the final five holes before embarking on his second round.

Woods opened his 26th Masters with a birdie, igniting huge cheers at Augusta and overall, showed plenty to suggest he can compete this week.

But the weather delay is far from ideal for the 48-year-old and his creaking body, as he now faces playing 23 holes on Friday as the tournament schedule moves to stay on track. 

Woods bogeyed the par-3 fourth after sailing his tee shot over the green, but he got the stroke back at the par-5 eighth with a two-putt birdie.

Woods and playing partners Max Homa and Jason Day of Australia will resume their rounds at 8 a.m. Friday.

It is Woods’ first appearance since withdrawing from the Genesis Invitational in February with flu-like symptoms, and his first major in a year. Woods made the cut at last year’s Masters but withdrew before the end of the rain-interrupted third round, citing plantar fasciitis.

He underwent left ankle surgery later that month and has played very little competitive golf since.
