Golf: Who has won the most Masters titles?

Tiger Woods will take part in a practice round in Augusta and raise hopes for the unlikely master Return. The golfing legend has not competed in an official competitive event for 18 months – the 2020 edition of the same event, held in November due to the coronavirus.

The 46-year-old, who last won the Major in 2019, will be based in Georgia after his private jet landed around 9.45am local time today. Sources previously revealed that Woods was planning a trip to Augusta National after he was seen heading to Medalist Golf Club to step up his preparations.

When the first rumors surfaced, there was a feeling that Woods could take part in the tournament, but his appearance only for training is a positive sign. Woods suffered open fractures to his right lower leg and other injuries to his foot and ankle after a car accident last year, which he then underwent extensive rehabilitation to regain full fitness.

At February’s Genesis Invitational, Woods appeared as tournament organizer exactly a year after his life-changing accident, and then refused to rule out his chances of competing at the famed Augusta course in April. When asked if he would compete, he said, “I don’t know.”

However, he confirmed that, playing or not, he would still be attending the annual tournament dinner two days before the start of the tournament. Woods continued, “I’ll be there on Tuesday and it’s going to be a great dinner – I don’t know what kind of sushi we’re going to have!”

Off the course, Woods was inducted into the Golf Hall of Fame earlier this month. His daughter Sam had the honor of presenting her father with his award, recognizing his distinguished career which has widely recognized him as the greatest golfer of all time.

Woods, who has won 82 PGA Tour titles and 15 Major championships, paid tribute to his family for their role in propelling him to become a professional golfer. He said, “Thank you. Heck, I just lost a bet to Stricker that I wouldn’t cry. Thanks Sam

“All the inductees, all the people who are here – all the former Hall of Famers who are here, players, the World Golf Hall of Fame committee, thank you for accepting me and letting me in here. Without the sacrifices of Mom taking me to all those junior golf tournaments and Dad not being here.

“But who taught me this work ethic to fight for what I believe in, chasing after my dreams, nothing is ever given to you, everything will be earned,” he added. “If you don’t go out and put the work in, you don’t go out and put in the effort, firstly you won’t get the results, but secondly, and more importantly, you don’t deserve it. You have to earn it.”
