All signs pointed to this being a Masters for the ages.
This wasn’t what anyone had in mind — 52-year-old Fred Couples, silver hair and still cool as ever, drawing the loudest cheers Friday on his way to becoming the oldest player atop the leaderboard going into the weekend at Augusta National.
With his words and then his play, Lee Westwood shot down the notion Thursday that this Masters was a two-horse race.
On a busy opening day at Augusta National that featured mud, a little rain and a snowman on the final hole for Henrik Stenson, Westwood provided a steady hand Thursday with seven birdies for a 5-under 67 that gave him a one-shot lead.
Tiger Woods couldn’t see the green through the trees, though that was only a minor obstacle. He choked up on a 5-wood and played a sweeping draw around the pines, over the water and onto the back of the green.

The finishing touch of a most amazing Masters was Charl Schwartzel slipping into a green jacket. Until that moment late Sunday afternoon, everything else at Augusta National was up for grabs.
The roars came from everywhere, for everyone, and never stopped.

Phil Mickelson’s Masters win, with Tiger Woods lurking but never really in contention, drew much higher television ratings than last year but fell far short of the record set by Woods’ first title at Augusta.
Sunday’s final round on CBS earned a 12.0 overnight rating and 25 share, up 36 percent from last year’s 8.8/21 for Angel Cabrera’s win in a two-hole playoff. But it didn’t come close to matching the 15.8/32 for Woods’ first Masters victory in 1997.
Phil Mickelson soaked up a scene he knows all too well as he climbed the steep hill toward the 18th green at Augusta National to claim another green jacket.
Only when he rapped in one last birdie for a three-shot victory did this Masters get even better.
The shots. The fist pumps. The roaring galleries at Augusta National.
Tiger Woods played as though he’d never been away.
Returning from a five-month layoff and trying to rebuild his reputation after a sex scandal, Woods quickly showed his game was still in good shape Thursday at the Masters.
