Tiger Woods to Return at Masters
Tiger Woods will end his self-imposed hiatus from golf this April, when he competes at the Masters in Augusta. World number one Woods said in a statement that it is only fitting that he makes his return at Augusta because it is where he won his first major. “After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.”
The announcement finally ended the guessing game about when and where Woods will resume his golf career, which hit a bump after he admitted to having several mistresses. Woods last played a tournament in November, just a few days before he figured in a car crash near his Orlando home. The crash would later be attributed to a fight between Woods and his wife Elin. Woods would subsequently admit that he has been unfaithful to his wife.
The U.S. PGA welcomed Woods’ decision to choose the Masters as his comeback tournament. Woods has won at Augusta four times, the first in 1997, when at age 21, he became the youngest player-ever to wear the green jacket.
