GOLF fans are still hopeful that Tiger Woods makes a shock appearance at this year’s Masters.
The five-time Green Jacket winner, 46, has been away from the game since February 2021 following a devastating car accident in California.
Woods sustained serious leg injuries in the horror smash, which came just two months after he underwent back surgery to fix a long-term injury.
He suffered open fractures to his lower right leg and further injuries to his foot and ankle, with months of rehab required to get him back on his feet.
Woods is automatically included on the Augusta National’s invite list as a former winner, with his last Masters triumph in 2019.
And despite having not swung a club competitively in more than a year, he has yet to rule out the possibility of playing in the iconic Major.
Speaking at the Genesis Invitational in late February, Woods was coy on his chances of playing but confirmed he will be in attendance for the annual champions dinner on April 5.
He said: “I don’t know [if I’ll play].
“I’ll be there Tuesday and it will be a great dinner – I don’t know what kind of sushi we are going to have!”
With his name still included on the Invitees list with just over a fortnight before the tournament begins, speculation is rife that Tiger could make yet more history on the iconic Augusta greens.
During his stint as host at the Genesis, Tiger outlined how he was preparing to return to the course after such a long lay-off.
