Tiger Woods is making headlines for his play at The Masters in Augusta, Georgia this weekend. The 14-time major champion entered the weekend one stroke back of the leaders. Woods is now more than nine holes into his third round and he's at 8-under par, two back of Tony Finau at -10.

The headlines for Woods aren't limited to his play, though. They're also discussing his wardrobe.

Woods has brought a throwback look to Augusta National this weekend.

The four-time Masters champion is wearing mock turtlenecks during each round. He wore a blue one on Day 1, a white one on Day 2 and has a soft pink one on today.

Woods said prior to the tournament that he enjoys wearing them and he's won in them before, so why not bring them back at The Masters.

“I thought it was a pretty neat look back in the day,” Woods said on Tuesday. “I was probably in a little better shape back in those days, but I had won events wearing the mock, and I’ve always enjoyed wearing them.”

It's certainly working for Woods so far.

The 43-year-old golfer is right in the mix on Saturday and, assuming a solid finish to his round today, should be teeing off late on Sunday.
