Once Tiger Woods was finished at the 1997 Masters, golf would never be the same. The Golf Channel reports that he didn’t just win the tournament, he crushed the competition; the then-21-year-old Woods made one of the toughest golf courses in the world look like his own personal playground, winning by 12 strokes, the largest margin since 1862. It would be the first of five Masters titles for Tiger, and the first of 15 majors in his career.

In men's play, Scotland's Bruce Mouat leads Pool A at 3-0.

Mouat won the first of two Grand Slam events last week when he beat reigning Canadian champ Brendan Bottcher in the final of the Humpty's Champions Cup.

Brad Gushue of St. John's and Switzerland's Yannick Schwaller are tied for first in Pool B at 2-0.

Two more draws were scheduled for later Thursday.

After play Friday, the top six women's and men's teams qualify for the playoffs.
