Masters 2019: A birdie puts Tiger Woods within one stroke of Francesco Molinari


April 14 at 10:15 AMA wave of late-day severe storms forced Masters officials to move up tee times, creating a rare Sunday morning breakfast at the Masters event, with all eyes focused on whether Tiger Woods can win his fifth green jacket and first major in nearly 11 years.


As the leaders approached the fourth hole, the wind began whipping up, coming from multiple directions.


Woods found a bit of trouble early, with his tee shot on the second hole flying wide left and down a hill into pine straw while playing partners Molinari, the leader at 13 under par, and Finau were safely in the fairway.


Woods and Finau — each trailing Molinari by two strokes — teed off at 9:20 a.m. with the three making par on the first hole.


Woods, wearing his signature red mock turtleneck, faced a schedule adjustment as he fights Father Time and Mother Nature simultaneously for another major.


Molinari, the Italian player who won the British Open, was on the practice area two hours before his tee time.
