(Newser) – Tiger Woods shot a 4-under-par 68 in today's opening round of the Masters, his best score ever on the tournament's first day. Woods, a four-time champion in the first major of the year, made eagles at the eighth and 15th holes—the first time he's had multiple eagles in a Masters round. Also, he had never started with a score lower than 70 until today—and now, after his five-month layoff, he finds himself just two strokes behind leader Fred Couples.
