Week In Sports: From Tiger Woods' Return To NFL's First Female Official
The Masters is underway in Augusta, Georgia. It’s the first major golf tournament of the season and the big news is the appearance of Tiger Woods. He is teeing off in a tournament for the first time since February.
Woods, a four-time Masters champion, has been nagged by injuries and general unhappiness with his play and hasn’t won a major since the U.S. Open in 2008.
Here & Now sports analyst Mike Pesca joins hosts Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson to talk about that story, as well as two others: the NFL’s move to hire its first-ever female official, and the upcoming NBA playoffs.
