Friday at Augusta, defending Masters champion Tiger Woods failed to score a single birdie while shooting a first-round 76. It was his first birdie-less round since 1999, and his worst Masters' start ever. Today, the tournament promises to be marred by protests over the policies of the Augusta National Golf Club, which refuses to admit women. NPR's Scott Simon talks with Weekend Edition sports commentator Ron Rapoport.
