Masters tournament opens in Ga.
AUGUSTA, Ga. - It's an overcast day at Augusta National as the Masters gets underway.
Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player - with 13 green jackets among them - each struck a ball off the first tee to begin the first major of the year.
Then they stepped aside for the first group.
Four-time Masters champion Tiger Woods comes into the week as the overwhelming favorite. He already has three wins this year and reclaimed the No. 1 spot in the world rankings.
But Woods has gone eight long years since his last win at Augusta.
