Tiger Woods provides update on Masters return as five-time champion confirms he will travel to Augusta for training

Tiger Woods has given an update on his return to the Masters.

The 15-time Major winner, who nearly lost his leg in a life-threatening car crash in February 2021, hasn’t played a full golf tournament in 17 months.


Woods can still make a return to the competitive scene after suffering an almost life-changing event

However, since that accident, Woods has staged a comeback of sorts which has seen him compete in the 2021 PNC Championship, a 36-hole competition in which he finished second alongside his son, Charlie.

Augusta is a notoriously hilly course and the 46-year-old still struggles to walk for long stretches – which is why many consider the 150th Open in July, in a flat St Andrew’s, a more likely comeback.

But, remarkably, the five-time Masters champion isn’t ruling himself out just yet.

The tournament is scheduled to start on April 7 and will end on April 10.

With days to go, Woods is running out of time to let Augusta officials know his decision to play or not.

But after writing on social media platform Twitter, it looks like he is doing his best to feature in the competition.

He said: “I will be heading to Augusta today to continue my preparation and training.

“It will be a game-time decision whether I compete.”

Woods also congratulated Anna Davis, a 16-year-old who won the Augusta National Women’s Amateur.

“Congratulations to Anna Davis, 16, on her incredible win at @anwagolf and good luck to all the kids at @DriveChipPutt.”
