Golfing legend Tiger Woods returns to the PGA Tour at the Masters Tournament. It is the first major of 2022. Also, it is the first time in 14 months Woods has played in any Tour events. His last one was the Masters Open in 2020.

Woods won the Masters five times. Also, he won PGA Tour events 82 times. However, he missed the Masters in 2021 after breaking his right leg during a fatal car crash in February 2021.

After the accident, his only public golfing appearance was during the PNC Father-Son event with his son Charlie in December 2021. He required a cart to go around the course during the 2-day tournament. However, the PGA Tour doesn’t allow the use of carts during their events.

Tiger Woods Returns to Competitive Golf

Tiger Woods Returns to PGA Tour at the MastersSports betting fans are happy to see Woods’ comeback. He played a practice run with Justin Thomas last week in Augusta National. However, he is not the favorite to win the Masters this year.

Woods fell to world number 973 after the accident. Despite that, Korea sports news insiders expect Woods to compete to win. Therefore, his appearance would not be a ceremonial one. However, Augusta National is a hilly golf course. Thus, people who bet on baseball and golf are concerned about Woods’ injuries. Also, the weather would play a factor in whether he could complete the four-day tournament until the end.

Woods said he could hit the ball fine. However, walking will be difficult for him. Some of Woods’ best performances in his career were in Augusta National. In 1997, he won with a lead of 12 strokes. Also, he won his fifth Masters title in 2019 despite a back injury.

It would be Woods’ 21st time to play at the Masters this year. He placed in the top ten 14 times.
