“He’s done so much for professional golf. The Tour looks a lot different than it did in 1996 before he came out, so we’re all very grateful and we’re hopeful to have him back.”
2015 champion Jordan Spieth believes having Woods at the Masters is ‘good for the game of golf’. He continued: “I think him playing and playing with being healthy and playing and potentially playing well is just in general, no matter where it is, just so good for the game of golf and all of us. Obviously, no stage is brighter than it is this week.
“He seems to be moving great, in great spirits. It’s amazing if you think about where he was at a year ago to now, I don’t know how many people, if anybody, could be out here – and this is not an easy walk. So to be out here and not to throw his age in the mix, but I don’t think that helps much for that recovery, but is anybody surprised?”
