Tiger Woods lets the F-bomb fly on a hot mic in a super return to the masters

The golfing legend, who returns to major competition for the first time since nearly losing his leg in a car crash last year, had a promising first round at Augusta. He shot a one-under-par 71 to tie for 10th place, four shots behind leader Sungjae Im. The tournament continues until Sunday.

Woods also had his moments of frustration. After his shot on the ninth hole went off the green, Woods exclaimed over a hot mic, “Fuck you!”

For many fans, swearing was another indicator that the five-time Masters champion has been really back.

“I can swing a golf club,” Woods told reporters afterward. “The walk is not easy, it is difficult. Like I said, with all the hard work, my leg is going to be tough for the rest of my life. It’s like that, but I’m able to do it. I am very lucky to have this opportunity to be able to play, and not only, to play in the Masters and to have this type of welcome. I mean, the place was electric.
