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

Tiger Woods has given an update on whether he will return to The Masters.

The 15-time Major winner, who nearly lost his leg in a fatal car accident in February 2021, has not played a full-fledged golf tournament in 17 months.

Woods could still return to the competitive scene after suffering an almost life-changing event

Since that crash, however, Woods has made a comeback of sorts that saw him compete in the 2021 PNC Championship, a 36-hole competition where he finished second alongside his son Charlie.

Augusta is a notoriously hilly course and the 46-year-old is still struggling to walk for extended periods – which is why many believe July’s 150th Open at a dead St Andrew’s a more likely return.

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

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

With a few days left, Woods is running out of time to update Augusta officials on his decision to play or not.

But after writing on the social media platform Twitter, he appears to be doing his best to enter the competition.


He said: “I will leave for Augusta today to continue my preparation and training.

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

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

“Congratulations to 16 year old Anna Davis on a fantastic win at @anwagolf and good luck to all the kids at @DriveChipPutt.”
