Tiger Woods IS plays next week at the Masters in Augusta

BREAKING NEWS: Tiger Woods will play at the Masters next week after being included in the pre-tournament press conference schedule

Five-time winner Tiger Woods will compete at the Masters next week after being included in the pre-tournament interview schedule.

Woods has made it clear his competitive career will now be limited to a handful of events a year, a legacy of the February 2021 car accident that left the 15-time major champion fearing his right leg would have to be amputated.

The 47-year-old will prioritize the majors and tournaments he has a personal connection with, with his only competitive appearance before arriving at Augusta National in February coming at the Genesis Invitational, benefiting his foundation.

Woods played just nine rounds in top-flight competition in 2022, finishing 47th at the Masters, busting out after a third round of 79 at the US PGA Championship, and then missing the cut at the 150th Open Championship in St. Andrews.

Cameron Smith is the only LIV Golf League player to be included in the interview schedule thanks to his win at St Andrews before joining the Saudi-funded circuit.

A group representing the families of victims and survivors of the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States had pledged to protest in Augusta because eligible LIV players, including former champions Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Dustin Johnson, competition were invited.

However, 9/11 Families United announced on Friday that they would instead hold a Tuesday news conference in Atlanta to discuss what they described as Augusta’s decision to “restrict the American golfers who, over the past year, have partnered with the (Saudi) Kingdom to embrace Help ‘Sportswash’ his terrible record’.
