Tiger Woods is bringing back the mock turtleneck.
Woods sported the style in 1997 when he won the first of his four Masters titles. It may have been considered out of date in the years since. He wore a short-sleeved turtleneck when he last won the Masters in 2005.
Now, Woods will wear a mock turtleneck in all four competitive rounds of this year’s Masters – in blue, gray, lavender and, of course, red.
“I thought it was a pretty neat look back in the day,” Woods said Tuesday. “I was probably in a little better shape back in those days, but I had won events wearing the mock, and I just think that it's ‑ I've always enjoyed wearing them, and you'll see it on Thursday.”
What’s for dinner?
A prime bone-in cowboy ribeye was the main course served in honor of defending champion Patrick Reed at the Masters Club Dinner on Tuesday night. A mountain trout also was available.
The menu also included Caesar salad, wedge salad, macaroni and cheese (with white cheddar and smoked gouda), creamed spinach, corn creme brulee and steamed broccoli. Deserts were tiramisu, vanilla bean crème brulee, chocolate crunch and praline cheesecake.
Quote of the day
Phil Mickelson was asked about his driving game headed into the Masters. An exchange with reporter went like this:
Q. Are you driving it fairly straight right now?
A. I don't know, but I'm hitting it far, and that's all I care about right now.”
The weather is looking better in Augusta – except for the possibility of thunderstorms during Sunday’s final round.
The current forecast for the rest of Masters week at Augusta National calls for:
Wednesday: Sunny, 81/56, 10 percent
Thursday: Partly cloudy, 81/63 degrees, 0 percent
Friday: Cloudy, 85/64, 20 percent
Saturday: Cloudy, 85/66, 20 percent
Sunday: Thunderstorms, 84/58, 80 percent
