AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Tiger Woods got off to a brilliant start at the Masters. The defending champion couldn’t keep it going. Woods made a birdie on his 10th hole of the opening round to reach 4-under par. He played the next 44 holes in just 1 under, leaving him 11 shots off the lead heading to the final round. Woods didn’t make a birdie in the third round until the 12th hole, and he finished with a middling 72. After 19 months as the Masters champ, Woods will surely be putting the green jacket on another player Sunday.
