Tiger Woods didn't seem to have much rust in the early going today at the Masters. He got a nice ovation from the gallery before teeing off on the first hole, which he acknowledged with a smile and tip of his cap. He began with a pair of pars before a birdie on the third hole. He even managed to ignore a small plane towing a banner reading, “Tiger: Did you mean bootyism?” notes the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The current leader is 60-year-old Tom Watson at 5-under.
