Tiger Woods turns heads with signs announcing the Master’s return

Tiger Woods appears to be in good shape should he decide to compete in this year’s Masters

Ian O’Connor from the Post Office reported that Woods would train again in Augusta, according to his caddy Joe LaCava. Both LaCava and Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee spoke about how the 46-year-old has looked good on the green and shouldn’t be counted out when he plays.

“LaCava said he expects Tiger to play something this afternoon and likes the way his guy looks,” O’Connor tweeted.

The tournament, which Woods has previously won five times, doesn’t start until Thursday, and the legendary golfer said it’s a “game-time decision” on whether to compete.

Woods, who was badly injured in a car accident last year, wasn’t sure he would lose a leg after the accident. His return, not just to playing golf professionally but simply to practice, has been a long one.

Chamblee tweeted that the high quality of Woods’ swing is particularly noteworthy given the nature of his injuries from the car accident.

“That’s a massive upper body twist for any Tour pro, let alone a 46-year-old recovering from a serious injury and a history of back problems. Looks like it will dissolve and expand nicely too. I heard he smoked it today. Exceptional story when he acts,” wrote Chamblee.

On Sunday, Woods practiced on the grounds of Augusta National and was seen hitting balls, mingling with his potential rivals and playing the back nine.

The Stanford product has not played on the PGA Tour since the Masters in November 2020. Since his accident, Woods has only competed in December’s 36-hole PNC Championship with his 13-year-old son Charlie; the pair finished second. In this case he was allowed to use a cart.
