Tiger Now the Second Masters Ace

In combat a fighter with five kills is called an ace
Over the Chinese skies a band of tigers put the Japanese in their place
The Flying Tigers caused the rising Sun to in flames be set
Heroic efforts in the early dark days of the war hard to forget
In the world of golf after five wins at the Masters an ace on the greens
After 14 years of drought the Tiger is back again to wear the green Jacket at the Masters scene
Overcoming injuries, surgeries, and personal problems galore
On a Sunday Tiger Woods at Augusta is back once more
The man who in his prime with long accurate drives turned par fives into par fours
Amazed fans, competitors and golf course designers how well he could score
The leader in Masters wins is Jack Nicklaus with six
Who last won a Masters at the ripe young age of 46
Woods now a young 43
And back and knee pain free
Has now a good chance
To tie and then past him advance
A golfing tiger now caught by the tail
Not to be let go as he claws on the 7 win Masters Trail
