Tiger Woods has a long way to go in his recovery from a horrific car accident

Tiger Woods has refused to rule out a shock appearance next month master despite his horrific car accident in Los Angeles a little over a year ago. The five-time green jacket winner has not appeared on the PGA Tour since suffering a serious injury last February.

Lots golf Fans feared they would never see arguably the sport’s greatest player perform professionally again after the crash. However, they received a boost this week when his name was on the event’s invite list for next month’s event.

Woods suffered open fractures to his right lower leg and further injuries to his foot and ankle in the 2021 fall, after which he underwent extensive rehabilitation to regain full fitness.

The 15-time Major champion’s final appearance was actually in Augusta at the rescheduled 2020 event, held in November this year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. And his return may well come in the historical setting in which he’s proven so prolific throughout his career.

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 two days before the start of the tournament, he would still attend the annual tournament dinner whether he would play or not. 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!”

Although the golfing great could return next month, he has already confirmed his comeback on the PGA Tour will not be a full-time comeback due to the impact of his injuries. The 2019 Masters champion reiterated at last month’s Genesis Invitational that his future schedule would only ever be a part-time schedule.

He commented: “Will I come back and play a full schedule? No. That will never happen again. I can play certain events here and there, but at a full-time level, no, that’s never going to happen again.”

Since the crash, Woods has actually made public appearances on the golf course again, having competed in the PNC Championship father-son competition in late 2021. While the event wasn’t a competitive event, the 82 former PGA Tour winner appeared to be finding himself again, proving to be the star of the show alongside his prodigy son, Charlie.

One man confirmed absent from next month’s major is Woods’ longtime rival Phil Mickelson. As a result, ‘Lefty’ was embroiled in a saga involving the controversial Saudi Golf League last month, and following the episode he confirmed he was taking ‘a break’ from the professional stage.

Many had speculated that Mickelson would return to Augusta next month, but his name made this week’s list of past winners. His no-show means it’s the first time he’s missed the Masters since 1994.
