Masters opens with Woods on the sideline

Posted: Updated:

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The Masters is underway in Augusta with three shots right down the middle of the fairway. Just not terribly far.

Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus hit the ceremonial tee shots Thursday morning with fans already lining both sides of the first fairway. Still competitive even after all these years, Nicklaus went last and hit a drive that went about a yard past Player's shot.

The "Big Three" combined to win 13 green jackets, including seven in a row at the start of the 1960s.

This Masters is far less predictable. Without Tiger Woods or a dominant figure, it's seen as the most wide-open Masters in years.

A bunch of brash Augusta rookies are eager to fill Woods' shoes.
