Tiger Woods is set to compete in The Masters for the first time since 2015, and fans will be able to watch him play the first round Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia via live stream.

The Masters announced Tuesday that Woods will be part of a featured group for Round 1, which will be the subject of “18-hole, spotlight coverage” on Masters.com. He’ll tee off at 10:42 a.m. ET alongside playing partners Marc Leishman and Tommy Fleetwood.

Tiger finished tied for 17th when he last played the season’s first major three years ago. He hasn’t won a Green Jacket since 2005, when he captured his fourth in a nine-year span.

Although prolonged back problems threatened to end his days as a serious contender on golf’s biggest stages, he’s made a remarkable turnaround in recent months. He finished second in the Valspar Championship and fifth in the Arnold Palmer Invitational during his final two warm-up events.

OddsShark noted the betting line for him to win the 2018 Masters has dropped to 14-1 following the run of improved form. That’s tied with Justin Rose for the fifth-best odds behind only Jordan Spieth (9-1), Rory McIlroy (10-1), Justin Thomas (11-1) and Dustin Johnson (11-1).
