Winning the master for Woods did not just happen by chance. His vast experience helped him succeed at Augusta National. His unique instincts such as the ability to use sight to understand sounds and ability to avoid making mistakes were his greatest assets.
According to Woods, the ability to locate the leaderboard was important during the masters. This was because it helped him know how other players were progressing. By doing so, he was able to know who it might be when he heard a roar. The roars help him understand what is going on in the field.
Both Woods and Molinari made birdie on 13th and reach 12 under par. There was no roar at 15th for either Brook Koepka or Shauffele. Koepka missed a 20-foot birdie that would have set him to top. Woods took the lead after the 15thbirdie. On 16th birdie, he took the lead by two shot.
While he was still focusing on his game, he was trying to figure out who might be ahead of him and what were their situations, where they might make birdie and if he managed 14 under par, how many players can do the same. Just like any other sports one has to know the time and distance to make appropriate shoots.
