Tiger Woods is planning to make his triumphant return to golf as part of the 2022 Masters field. Woods said as much Tuesday during his official press conference at Augusta National with just two days to go until the first round begins — this after several days of practice at Augusta, including a trip with his son, Charlie, and Justin Thomas last week.
“As of right now, I feel like I am going to play. As of right now. I’m going to play nine more holes [Wednesday],” said Woods, who noted that he will make his final evaluation at that time.
Woods has looked fit and healthy all week, both in the practice area and on the course. Every report — including those from his peers — has been encouraging in terms of the way he is carrying himself on the course he has owned for the last 25 years.
