Tiger Remains In Masters Field Until He Says Otherwise

Videos by OutKick

Just days before Masters week, Tiger Woods remains in the field.

Although it’s hard to imagine Woods returning to business as usual given the severity of his one-car crash back in February 2021 — which nearly caused him to have his right leg amputated —the New York Post reports Woods is likely to remain until he says he’s not.

As of Friday, Woods was still listed in the official field to play at Augusta National.

OutKick’s Nick Geddes reported last week that Woods will exhaust every effort to tee off at Augusta National on April 7.

The Masters doesn’t require a Friday afternoon deadline for a qualified participant to commit, so while many waited to hear something definitive from the golfer, Woods didn’t need to announce his intentions.

The 15-time major champion and five-time Masters champion was seen practicing and walking the course at Medalist Golf Club last past weekend, fueling speculation that a return could be near.

The Post reports that Woods appears to have made amazing strides physically in the quiet of his own workouts at home in Florida, and his trip to Augusta for a practice round on Tuesday included seeing how he handled the 18-hole walk.

  1. I know you all want Eldrick to play but he ain’t I was reading here on Outkick a couple months or so ago and he couldn’t even walk a course so anyone thinking he is going to play the Masters and be humiliated nope not happening. In fact his days of top level tournament golf days are behind him old and broken not a good combo

  2. I think Tiger, as great as he was, is a drama queen who gets off on all this speculation about whether he’s playing or not. And, of, course, the media slobbers all over him and this story. To me, if he plays, fine, if he doesn’t, that’s fine as well. If he plays he won’t be in contention anyway.

  3. I am sick of Tiger, sorry just retire. I understand nobody moves the needle like him, but if he truly wants what is best for the sport he needs to start hyping some of these great young players instead of trying to soak up the spotlight before he fades away. He will always be part of the game and can be a huge ambassador but his days of playing at a high level are done.
