On Golf: our Pop-Up Masters newsletter


Welcome to the golf newsletter, which kicks off during Masters week as Tiger Woods has once again returned to the spotlight.

Anyone who watched Tiger in his early years knew he would dominate both on the golf course and as the game’s pre-eminent personality. But I’m not sure anyone thought that at age 46, 15 major championships later and just over a year after suffering devastating leg injuries in a single-vehicle crash, Tiger would still have such a grip on golf. .

But this week, at a Masters that already had compelling stories like the rise of a vibrant young breed of golfers exemplified by Collin Morikawa, Viktor Hovland and Jon Rahm, the mere suggestion that Tiger might be on the course drowned out conversations about everything else.

Masters Week is a rite of spring, especially in many colder parts of the United States and Canada, where Augusta National’s shimmering green grass and blooming azaleas portend the warm, sunny days to come for golfers and golf enthusiasts. But this week, the Masters is about something bigger.

Tiger Woods, the first golfer of this era who seemed destined to be kicked out of golf’s biggest stage, is apparently going to play at the elite level again – at the Masters, where he won his first major title 25 years ago. Enjoy!
