Augusta, GA – Tiger Woods arrived at Augusta National on Sunday and went to the practice range at 3:20 a.m. ET — but it is not yet known if he will compete in the Masters.
After a week of vitriolic speculation, Woods posted on social media Sunday morning that he was traveling to Augusta and that it would be a “matchtime decision on whether to compete”.
In the same tweet, Woods also congratulated Anna Davis In her victory Saturday in the Augusta National Amateur Competition And he wished good luck to the Drive, Chip and Putt co-stars.
Woods heated up for 20 minutes and was taken to the golf course in a cart for a clear practice round. The course closed to the public and the media at 1:30 p.m., so the number of holes he played is still unknown. He’s on the pre-tournament interview schedule at 11 a.m. on Tuesday.
Putting Woods in his first major of the year has been an open question since he played an 18-hole practice round earlier this week with his sons Charlie and Justin Thomas. Woods has not played since sustaining a serious injury to his right leg in a car accident in February 2021.
His last official event was the 2020 Masters, when the event was postponed to November due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
