2012 Masters Leaderboard Update: Henrik Stenson Leads Early, Tiger Woods Lurking

This probably isn't how Tiger Woods drew up his start to the 2012 Masters. On his first two holes of competition he put his drives into the trees on the left side after mammoth hooks. He scrambled for a par on the first, and despite actually losing his drive into a hazard on the second, was able to do the same there. He then birdied the third hole on a lengthy attempt before parring the difficult and long par three fourth hole. He sits at -1 through four, two shots behind leader Henrik Stenson.

Stenson got off to a hot start by eagling the second hole, which is a hole that Champions tend to handle fairly easily. He then birdied the fifth hole to build his one stroke lead. Former Major champion Martin Kaymer is at -2, while there are also a handful of golfers tied with Tiger Woods at two shots back. You can find the complete leader board as well as complete coverage of the tournament at Sports Illustrated.
