'What was he thinking?': Tiger Woods in insane moment with security guard

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods nearly gets taken down by a sliding Augusta National security guard

After a delay of around 30 minutes play was able to resume and Woods missed the birdie attempt, but did pick up a shot on the 14th in extraordinary circumstances a few minutes later. "I know I can play this golf course, just this week I have not played it well enough".

However, the five men sharing the lead have all claimed major titles and will each be confident in their ability to deny Woods his first such success since the 2008 U.S. Open.

Woods has gone 14 years since he last won the green jacket, 11 years since his last major and had five surgeries - four on his back, the other to rebuild his left knee.

Then there's the man lurking one shot behind: four-time tournament victor Tiger Woods.

Day defied crippling back pain to be in contention after the first round - somehow posting a 2-under par 70 to finish day one just four shots from the lead despite aggravating his chronic back injury and needing medical treatment just five shots in.

After an ordinary outward nine featuring three birdies offset by a pair of bogeys, Woods embarked on one of his trademark charges, carding three birdies after the turn to shoot up the leaderboard.

Seventh-ranked Molinari fired a bogey-free 67, the lowest score of his 26 career rounds at Augusta National, where his best finish was a share of 19th in 2012. The shot was pure, hooking around the pines to the green.

Rose suffered a cruel lip-out with a seven-foot putt at the 17th hole and then went from bad to worse, hardly touching the hole with a four-footer at the last.

Sarri: Higuain will succeed
However, Sarri again acknowledged that Higuain "needs to improve" and is not finding the transition to English football easy. However, he has started the majority of Chelsea's Europa League matches and is the competition's top scorer with nine goals.

Woods hopped out of the way, winced and repeatedly flexed his ankle, and then poured in another putt.

"Accidents happen, we move on", Woods said of the incident, confirming he suffered no major damage from the guard's boot. He was particularly happy to finish, especially after storms moved into the area and stopped play right after his tee shot into 5 feet on the unsafe par-3 12th.

"I feel like I played my own way back into the tournament", Woods said.

"Three [majors] in a row, I've been right in the mix", Woods added, building on his second place at last year's PGA Championships.

A birdie on the 10th was immediately cancelled out on the next and another bogey looked on the cards after his drive on the 13th clipped a tree - but after pitching out on to the fairway McIlroy hit his approach to 13 feet and holed for birdie.

"That's what I'm gonna do today, hit bombs and attack the pin here at the Masters" Mickelson said.

Mickelson stumbled to a 73 but still was only three shots behind. DeChambeau faded with a 75.

Justin Hading, who surged to the top of the leaderboard for much of Round 1, was still in the hunt at six-under par. McIlroy played the par 5s in even - two bogeys, one par and an eagle on No. 8 that got him under par, but only briefly. He was only seven shots behind, but he had 35 players in front of him.
