Tiger Woods opening round of 70 at the 2013 Masters is a familiar score for the world’s No. 1 golfer, he’s won three of his four titles at Augusta National when starting 2-under-par 70 in 1997, 2001 and 2002. Woods other Masters win came after he shot a 74 for his opening round in 2005. “I thought it was a good day, a solid day,” Woods said.  ”I’m only four back and I’m there.” Woods hit nine of 14 fairways and 13 of 18 greens in regulation, his putting wasn’t too bad either, he had just 30, but three-puted the 14th for bogey. “I thought the greens were a little bit tough in the sense that they just didn’t have the sheen to them, they just didn’t roll out,” he said. “A couple of putts, we were just talking about it in our group, that they weren’t that fast.” Woods said his lag putt on the 13th hole wasn’t as difficult as it had been in the past. “Normally that putt, it’s hard to get it inside 10-12 feet because as soon as it gets toward the front of the hole, there’s a little lip there, a little ledge, and it just runs right off of it. And there wasn’t even any fear of that today.” Woods played with Luke Donald, who shot 71, and Scott Piercy, who shat a 75. “I’m very pleased,” he said.  “It was a good, solid day. I hit the ball very solid and lag-putted pretty good and I made a few here and there.”
