Masters suspension couldn't have come at a worse time for Tiger Woods

The big cat is starting to purr.

After an opening round of 70, Tiger Woods started to heat up on day two of The Masters at Augusta with birdies on holes four, six, nine and 11 before play was suspended on Friday due to inclement weather in the area.

Tiger said that he was feeling good after his opening round on Thursday but that the course was still proving quite tricky in parts.

"I feel very good," he said. "I feel like I played well and I controlled my golf ball all day. I've shot this number and won four coats, so hopefully I can do it again.

"I did all the things I needed to do to post a good number. I drove it well, hit some good iron shots, and my speed was good on the greens.

"And it was tricky, the wind puffs up, it goes down, it switches directions, and it's typical of this golf course, it just kind of swirls out there and it's hard to get a read on the exactly what it's doing at all times.

"The whole idea is to try and peak for four times a year, I feel like my body's good and my game's good, it's sharp. So I've just got to go out there and execute and I've got to do the proper things and, if I do miss, I miss in a proper spot."
