Tiger Woods just made the announcement that the world of golf had been waiting to hear. The golfing legend is putting in the work to try and make his Masters return at Augusta.
The five-time Masters winner made the announcement on Twitter on his own personal account.
“I will be heading up to Augusta today to continue my preparation and practice. It will be a game-time decision on whether I compete,” said Tiger Woods on Twitter. “Congratulations to 16-year-old Anna Davis on an amazing win at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur and good luck to all the kids in the Drive, Chip & Putt.”

Tiger Woods would be making his first appearance back since being involved in a single-car crash back in February of 2021. The accident was serious enough that it could have potentially been fatal and nearly resulted in his right leg being amputated.
The fact that he is even in the position to play in the Masters is a feat in of itself. As recently as February, Tiger Woods had spoken out against the likelihood that he could return as early as April. But with the icon making the announcement himself on Twitter, it’s completely on brand for him to push himself to his limits for the love of the game.
