AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tiger Woods arrived at Augusta National on Sunday and went to the practice range at 3:20 am ET – but it is not yet known whether he will compete in the Masters.
After a week of breathless speculation, Woods posted on social media on Sunday morning that he is traveling to Augusta and that it will be a “game-time decision on whether I compete.”
In the same tweet, Woods also congratulated Anna Davis on her victory Saturday in the Augusta National Women’s Amateur and wished good luck to the participants in the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship.
Woods warmed up for 20 minutes and was driven to the golf course in a cart for a practice round, in which he set out on the second nine. The course was closed to the public and media at 1:30 pm He is on the pre-tournament interview schedule at 11 am on Tuesday.
Woods’ status for the first major of the year has been an open question since he played an 18-hole practice round earlier this week with son Charlie and Justin Thomas. Woods has not played since suffering serious injuries to his right leg in a car accident in February 2021.
His last official event was the 2020 Masters, when the event was pushed to November because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
