Tiger Woods may be back in the masters this year as he looked perfectly fit and happy in his first practice round for the tournament at the Augusta National on Monday.

His past personal life scandals did not seem to bother him too much that day.

Once a golf legend and now, the 111th-ranked golfer, Tiger Woods seemed poised for the challenge.

"I felt like I had to get my game into a spot where I felt I could compete to win a golf tournament, and it's finally there," Woods said.

He arrived a bit late and headed straight for the chipping area. The chipping is a problematic area of the renowned golfer.

Woods hooked his first tee shot far left, almost into the ninth fairway. He followed that hook by hitting a shot with a nearly 6 feet and rolled in the putt for birdie, according to the Seattle Times.

Playing 11 holes, he attempted playing the front nine with Mark O'Meara. He did not lose the opportunity of playing the 10th and 18th holes until he finished the day.

Totally relaxed, Woods looked carefree himself. He joked with anyone he came across and hugged former swing coach Sean Foley.

In his first couple of events of 2015 Woods was a bit careless to hit the flopper. On Monday, he did time and again. He even holed a couple, New York Daily News reported.

The first athlete to earn $1 billion, Woods was dragged into a private sexual affair with a few girls, in 2009. This led to his loss of form and then the status he enjoyed as a golf star.

Woods' last win at the Augusta National was 10 years ago, achieved with a playoff a chip shot for the ages on the 16th hole, against Chris DiMarco. His last major win was the U.S. Open in 2008.

Woods has been actively involved in regaining his form back, but that still looks to be a long shot. The billionaire has lost his golfing charm, which all of his fans wish he gets back.

The best part of the story is that Woods looks positive and if he succeeds in deriving the form back, it will be the greatest success story in golf's history.

Woods may be playing in the Masters and the golf's top-notch can only pay attention to the warning Woods's friend Mark O'Meara sounded the round.

 "Don't ever underestimate Tiger Woods," O'Meara said.
