Tiger mixes with fans after Masters practiceAUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods mingled with fans after his practice round at Augusta National, actually stopping to sign autographs on his way to take a few extra swings at the range.
Sporting the makings of a goatee and wearing sunglasses, Woods rolled a couple of balls to kids sitting along the ropes at the 18th green, then caught the fans off guard when he paused on his way to the new practice range. He stopped briefly to sign caps and Masters flags before heading on to the new practice facility.
Woods normally avoids any contact with the fans when he's on the course, but this is a tournament unlike any other. The world's greatest golfer is playing for the first time since a Thanksgiving night crash outside his home cracked open his sordid private life.
