Will Tiger Woods play in the Masters Tournament this year? Who knows! There are rumors flying that he will play in the Shell Houston Open this week in an effort to prepare for the Masters… But who knows.He did say in a recent interview that he would love to play in that event. An event he’s never played in before…
There is no deadline to commit to the Masters, unlike other PGA TOUR events, so he has another week to “make up his mind.” If he does come back, he better be ready. He is too old and has missed too many chances to play a few tournaments only to get hurt again.
Last October Tiger underwent a follow-up back surgery to “relieve discomfort” following a back surgery he had in September. If Tiger does come back, it will shake things up and he will be the story of the tournament. Heck, even if he doesn’t play he will be the story of the week! He’s on the cover of Sport Illustrated this month. Guy hasn’t won a major since 2008 but you can’t turn your head and not see him. Moral of the story, until the day he retires, and maybe even after that, he will be the headline for the Masters.
I digress… What do you think? Do you think Tiger plays in the Masters this year? Let us know in the comment section below. #TheMasters
