"The feel that you get and the receptions that you get coming to Augusta as a Masters champion is different," Garcia said Tuesday. "... It's just a different feeling, it's a different sensation, and it's unbelievable. It's great. I'm enjoying every minute of it and just hoping that I can go out there and play great again and have a chance of defending a green jacket."
The 82nd Masters Tournament will begin with ceremonial tee shots by former Masters champions Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player at 8:15 a.m. The first tee time is at 8:30 a.m. and features Austin Cook, Ted Potter and Wesley Bryan.
"I think that this year it feels like you probably have, I don't know, eight or 10 guys that are in good form, with really good, solid chance of winning," Garcia said. "So it's kind of interesting to see how the week goes on."
On Friday, Woods plays in the afternoon along with Leishman and Fleetwood at 1:27 p.m.
