Masters Preview Golf

Rory McIlroy needs a Masters victory to complete the career Grand Slam. He’ll tee it up at Augusta National this week for the 15th time.

Tiger Woods returns to the Masters, no longer a surprise as it was a year ago but no less a rare appearance. The event, which begins Thursday, will be only his third tournament against elite competition since he remarkably hobbled his way through 72 holes at Augusta National last April.
