Report: Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau in Masters practice round mix-up!

Tiger Woods was reportedly accidentally scheduled to play in a practice round with Bryson DeChambeau at Augusta National ahead of the 2023 Masters. 

In case you haven't heard by now, Woods arrived on the property on Sunday to begin his preparations for the forthcoming major. 

Woods, 47, touched down on his private jet and by late afternoon he was meeting Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley and posing for pictures with Augusta National Women's Amateur champion Rose Zhang. 

He clipped balls for around half an hour or so and apparently dazzled Jason Day with the sound he still makes when hitting a crisp, clean iron

Woods took to the course again on Monday - this time with Rory McIlroy, Fred Couples and Tom Kim

That's hardly surprising, given how close the big cat and McIlroy are. 

Woods played a practice round with Couples at the 86th Masters and Justin Thomas

No tampons were handed over. 

As for Kim, that's understandable, given he also wears the swoosh now. 

Woods was also originally scheduled to have DeChambeau in his group. 

Well, the two aren't exactly on the greatest of terms, given that DeChambeau is one of the golfers involved in the antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour. 

DeChambeau was pictured laughing and joking with Woods at the PGA Tour event he hosts annually in the Bahamas a little more than a year ago. 

But since then DeChambeau has upped sticks and is now plying his trade in the LIV Golf League

Still, he's apparently angered the big cat. 

So much so, Woods ghosted DeChambeau when the latter wished the iconic golfer a happy 47th birthday. 

DeChambeau previously explained: 

 "Yeah, I'm not going to throw anyone under the bus. He's been a great friend. I texted him on his birthday. It is what it is.
"He has his viewpoints on it and thinks we're potentially hurting his record. If anything, nobody is ever going to touch his record.
"That's just it, that's the bottom line. There's a chance to grow the game even more and I hope one day he'll see the vision that we all have out here."

Well, controversy narrowly avoided!
