tiger woods reveals the easiest course he's played this year

Tiger Woods was asked by the media what's been the most "score-able" golf course he's played this season, and he pointed straight in the direction of Augusta National, home of the Masters. 

Following an opening level-par 71 at the Wells Fargo Championship, Woods answered: “Probably Augusta, seriously."

"Most of the golf courses I've played have been really difficult setups, whether it's Torrey, LA., Honda, no one went low. Valspar, no one went low. Bay Hill was open and the guys just went low on Sunday only, but for the first three days they were almost kind of just jockeying. Augusta was more wide open than pretty much any event I've played in so far this year.”

Despite labelling it as the easiest course he's played this season, Woods finished tied 32nd in the season's first major.

Looking at the course stats so far this season, both PGA National (Honda Classic) and Innisbrook Resort (Valspar Championship) played to a higher stroke average than Augusta National, while Torrey Pines (Farmers Insurance Open), Riviera (Genesis Open) and Bay Hill (Arnold Palmer Invitational) were only slightly easier according to stroke averages.
