Mark O'Meara, the 1998 Masters champion, withdrew with a rib injury before his first round at Augusta National.

The PGA Tour said O'Meara was forced out when he pulled a muscle. He had played a practice round with good friend Tiger Woods the day before, and then took part in the Par 3 contest.

He has not made the cut at Augusta National since 2005, when he finished tied for 31st. He is a two-time major champion, also winning the British Open in 1998.

She's still working towards it, within three years

It may be longer than we think, within five years

The expectation might be too much, maybe never
