Tiger Woods plans to play at the Augusta Masters

American golfer Tiger Woods said today that he plans to play at the upcoming Masters in Augusta, Georgia, a little more than a year after a car accident in which he could lose his leg.

The five-time winner of the Masters in Augusta said he would train on Wednesday before making a final decision on participation.

“As things stand, I think I will play. I can hit well. I have no dilemmas what I can physically do from a golf standpoint. Now walking is the hardest part. This is not an easy walk to begin with. Given the condition of my leg, “It’s going to be harder, and 72 holes is a long way. It’s going to be a tough challenge, a challenge I’m ready for,” Woods said.

He added that he is happy to be back and that he likes to compete. Woods will play in the Masters for the 24th time, and in the previous 23 appearances he has been among the top five 12 times.

“I think I can still compete at the highest level and I will do that. If I think I can win, I will play. Also, if I think I won’t be able to win, you won’t see me there,” Woods said.

If the tournament starts on Thursday, it will be the first time since November 15, 2020 that Woods will compete against the best golfers in the world. He underwent back surgery for the fifth time two months later, and was still recovering from it when he had a car accident on February 23 last year, when doctors were considering amputating his leg.

“It’s been a difficult, difficult year, but I’m here,” Woods said.
