Around every corner at Augusta National is another reminder that Tiger Woods isn't getting any younger.

He played a practice round with a teenager from China who wasn't even born when Woods won his first Masters. He was introduced at his news conference Tuesday as playing the Masters for the 19th time, which caused Woods to bow his head and cover his eyes.

Among dozens of photographs on the walls of the club is one of defending champion Phil Mickelson helping Woods — with a much fuller head of hair — into the green jacket after Woods won the Masters in a playoff.

That was from 2005. And that was the last time Woods won the Masters.

Woods says at least he's contending, so he's not about to panic.
