Tiger Woods drops Masters 2022 hint as fans notice field inclusion

Date:


Golf fans have been given the biggest hint yet that Tiger Woods will be playing at the Augusta Masters in April after the American was included in the provisional field for the tournament. Woods, 46, has won five of his 15 major titles at the venue in Georgia, most famously in 2019 when he ended a 14-year wait to reclaim the green jacket.

Woods spectacularly burst onto the scene in 1997 when he won his first Major at Augusta, finishing a record 12 shots clear of runner-up Tom Kite. He went on to win 13 more majors before in 2009, his career derailed following allegations of infidelity, before serious back issues put his future in doubt.

And less than a year after his incredible win in 2019, Woods suffered a high-speed car crash in California which left him with broken bones and compound fractures in both of his legs. He’s admitted to his rehabilitation being frustratingly slow, but has been frequently spotted on courses of late with son Charlie, albeit using a buggy between shots.

But in a shock development, the golf legend has been included in the 2022 entry list on the US Masters website. And it’s a notion that hasn’t gone unnoticed by fans, with the breezygolf account confirming his inclusion via Instagram.

“Better call Augusta animal control. Because there’s about to be a Big Cat loose on the course!” replied @craig_forbus, while @royalsglass added “Winner by 5 shots.” @arlinmcdaniel40 argued his mere presence would boost the event, posting: “Even if he wasn’t up to par if he plays the masters shatters viewing records.”

Speaking at the Genesis Invitational in February, an event Woods hosted, the man himself refused to rule out another tilt at the Masters as he confirmed he’d be at the champions dinner: “I don’t know,” he said, when asked by reporters if he’d play. “I’ll be there Tuesday and it will be a great dinner – I don’t know what kind of sushi we are going to have!”
