Will Tiger Woods Play In The Master’s This Year? Hear What Tiger Said To Jim Nantz About It
Many of you probably know the incredible story by now, the epic comeback Tiger Woods made in winning the Master’s in 2019, his first time winning the tourney since 2005. It’d cap off his second PGA Tour victory in 2018-19 with 2018 being his first PGA Tour win since 2013.
Woods has faced injury after injury through the years (as detailed by the Golf Channel) through the years which seemingly made this Master’s win that much sweeter.
Could he make a run at another green jacket this year?
“God, I hope so,” Woods said to Jim Nantz on CBS during round four at the Genesis Open where Woods was the host of the tourney. “I got to get there first. A lot of it’s based on my surgeons, my doctors, and my therapists, and making sure that I do it correctly and this is the only back I got so I don’t have much more wiggle room left here.”
In the meantime, here’s a look back at Tiger playing in Augusta:
Another incredible Tiger Woods Master’s moment: According to the Golf Channel, “In 1997, Tiger Woods became the first Black golfer to win the Masters as well as the youngest winner; his 12-stroke margin of victory set a new Masters record.”
In that tournament Tiger hosted, the Genesis Open, Max Homa won in a playoff between Homa and Tony Finau. Woods congratulated Homa after the tournament.
