When Tiger Woods tees off on Thursday it will be the 19th time he has competed at The Masters and 17th as a professional.
Tiger has come a long way since 1995, when he shot 5-over par and finished tied for 41st as the low amateur. Since then, he has won four green jackets and finished in the top 10 an incredible 12 times.
