Will Tiger Woods play at the Masters and when is he returning to golf?

TIGER WOODS is sending golf fans mad after landing in Augusta and is playing a practice round after his horrific injuries.

The Californian born golfer, 46, last won The Masters in 2019 in one of the greatest sporting comebacks of all time.

Woods ended an 11-year drought to win his fifth Green Jacket, overcoming severe injuries and personal demons in the process.

When is Tiger Woods returning to golf?

Woods is currently away from the course and hasn't been seen at a Major tournament since 2020.

In February 2021, Woods shattered his right leg in a horror car crash on Hawthorne Boulevard in Los Angeles.

He was travelling at 87mph, nearly double the speed limit, when he lost control of his car in Los Angeles and smashed into a tree.

Woods needed immediate surgery after fracturing his tibia and fibula with many fearing his golf days were over.

Since his accident, Tiger has not played professional golf and as yet, there is no timetable for him to return.

But he showed real promise and clearly had most of his mobility back as he finished second alongside son Charlie in the 2021 PNC Championship.

The competition involved a line-up of previous major champions playing 36-holes alongside their children or parents.

Tiger and son Charlie, 13, wore matching red outfits on the final Sunday in homage to Woods' famous tradition.

And Woods Jr, alongside his dad, hit a tournament-record ELEVEN birdies in a row on the final day to post an incredible -15 round of 62.

Tiger has now ruled out a return to full-time golf, with the gruelling schedule that brings.

Instead, he's indicated that he will be picking and choosing his tournaments when he finally feels ready to return to competitive action.

He told reporters on February 16: "Will I come back and play a full schedule? No. That will never happen again.

"I can play certain events here and there, but on a full-time level, no, that will never happen again."

"I wish I could tell you when I'm playing again.

"I want to know. But I don't. My golf activity has been very limited. I can chip and putt well but I haven't done any long stuff seriously. I'm still working on the walking part.

What was his role at the Genesis Invitational?

Golf fans were delighted to see Tiger back at the Genesis Invitational in California.

But he wasn't out on the course – instead the golfing great was behind the mic.
