Tiger Woods has announced he will play the 86th Master at the Augusta National course starting Friday local time

Tiger woods is set to stun fans with a 14-month comeback on the green after enduring a horrific car crash in Los Angeles in February 2021.

The 15-time major champion will make a stellar return after the crash left him hospitalised for months. The 46- year old injured his right leg, which took months for him to resume walking like normal again.

However, it’s official, he’s back!

 “As of right now I am going to Play”

Woods has already played a nine-hole practice round, with thousands of spectators turning up to show their excitement.

He will play a further practice round a few days before the Masters kicks off to see how his body responds.

“It’s a matter of how my body is going to recover and what my body is able to do the next day”

TIGER WOODS- PRESS CONFERENCE

The world will be waiting with bated breath to see Woods play again, but as far as winning the competition Woods is not lacking in confidence.

Woods told the Press Conference he thinks he can take the Masters title and that there are no questions about what he can do golf-wise.

However, the focus will be on the strength and endurance of his once injured leg.

“I can hit it just fine,” Woods said. “I don’t have any qualms about what I can do golf-wise. Walking is the hard part.”

Stellar comeback

This return announcement has shocked the golfing world, with many surprised to see Woods in such good condition given the crash just over a year ago.

Woods was involved in a single-car accident in California on February 23, leaving him wheel-chair bound and his future unknown.

He spent three weeks in the hospital, then three months in a hospital bed at home.

There are very few details surrounding the finer details of the incident other than that speed was a factor.

The police report revealed Woods had been traveling at almost twice the legal speed limit when he crashed. But he was later cleared of being impaired by drugs or alcohol.

He needed surgery on open fractures to his lower right leg and injuries to his foot and ankle and feared that his right leg might be amputated.
