Tiger Woods Confirms Participation at Augusta National Months after Accident
Tiger Woods has confirmed that he will be participating in his 86th Masters after he suffered a horrific accident in February 2021.
The American golfer has not played golf at the top level since November 2021 when the 2020 Masters was organised. Woods was speaking at a press conference ahead of the Masters and said he was ready to compete and there is a possibility he will win his 16th Masters Open.
As of right now I feel like I am going to play, Very, very thankful for everyone’s support, everyone who has been involved in my process and the work I have put in each and every day. The amount of texts and FaceTimes and calls I have gotten has meant a lot.
He also said he has a good shot at winning this year's Master's, the only reason he decided to compete was that he believes he will win.
I feel like if I can still compete at the highest level I am going to, but if I feel like I can’t, you won’t see me out here. I don’t show up to an event unless I think I can win it.
Woods won the Masters title in 2019 just two years after he suffered a spinal fusion surgery in 2017. He finished in 38th position in 2020.
