Why is Tiger Woods wearing red on final day of the Masters? Reason revealed


Woods, who has won 14 majors, wears red on the final round of tournaments and it has become synonymous with the American.

The 43-year-old could win his first major title since lifting his third US Open in 2008.

He will tee off alongside overnight leader Francesco Molinari and Tony Finau at 2.20pm UK time.

Tiger Woods begins Sunday two shots behind Molinari on 11 under par and will be wearing red again after advice from his mother, Kultida.

“I wear red on Sundays because my mom thinks that that’s my power colour,” he said.

“And you know you should always listen to your mom.”

Woods is in contention at Augusta after a five-under 67 on Saturday.

He hasn’t won the Masters since 2005 and will get up “around 03:45 or 04:00” local time after the tee times were brought forward due to forecasted severe weather.

“Usually the reward for playing hard and doing all the things correctly, you get a nice little sleep-in come Sunday, but that’s not the case,” Woods said.

“It’s been a while since I’ve been in contention here, but then again the last two majors counts for something.”

Woods briefly led on the final day of the 2018 Open and finished runner-up to Koepka in the 2018 US PGA Championship.

It comes after a tough couple of years for Woods, who struggled with injuries and personal issues.

Asked about his desire to win at Augusta, Woods recently said: “I don’t really need to win again. I really want to.


“There were a couple of events over the course of my career, major championship-wise, I needed to win. One, don’t blow the lead I had in ’97, because of what just happened the previous year.

“Greg (Norman) lost a six-shot lead. I didn’t want to lose a nine-shot lead, so I was able to win that one.

“And then to win here in ’01 to complete all four in a row, that’s never been done. So I don’t know how many more chances I’m ever going to get to do that again.

“Probably not many, if at all, ever again in my career, and the build-up going into that event, that’s nine months of just getting asked the same question. Yeah, I needed to win that one to get all four.”
