BREAKING: Tiger Woods Plans to Play The Masters
Tiger Woods is planning to make his return to golf this week at the Masters, he announced in a press conference on Tuesday morning from Augusta National.
“As of right now, I feel like I am going to play,” said Woods.
Asked if he thinks that he can win the tournament, Woods responded “I do.”
Due to inclement weather, Woods is expected to just hit balls and practice on Tuesday. He hopes to play another nine holes on Wednesday.
“The fact I was able to get here is a success. Now that I’m here, the focus is getting to Sunday on the back 9 with a chance,” said Woods.
Assuming that there are no set backs and that he does in fact play, this will be Tiger’s first competitive golf round since the 2020 Masters.
PNC Championships don’t count.
Tiger’s return comes 14 months after a near fatal car crash in which he nearly had his leg amputated.
“That was a tough road. To get out of that wheelchair and crutches. To say that I’d be here playing and talking to you guys again, I would have said that was very unlikely,” said Woods.
Masters tee times should be released within the hour or so.
Look for Tiger to go off early on Thursday and late on Friday, as that will give him the maximum amount of rest.
