Woods included on list of players for Masters

Five-time winner Tiger Woods is in line to play at The Masters next month after being included on the entry list for this year’s tournament.

The 48-year-old had been due to compete in last week’s Players Championship but withdrew prior to the start of the tournament at TPC Sawgrass.

However, Woods is listed on the prestigious invitation event’s website among the players taking part at Augusta National from April 11-14, live on Sky Sports. He is yet to publicly confirm his intention to play.

Only Jack Nicklaus, with six titles, has won The Masters on more occasions than Woods, who last pulled on the iconic green jacket awarded to the winner in 2019.

Although his tournament appearances have been sporadic following his car accident in 2021, the 15-time major winner has a lifetime exemption to play at The Masters – as do all former champions.

Since that accident, he has competed twice in the event, finishing 47th in 2022 and then being forced to withdraw midway through the third round last year due to reaggravating his plantar fasciitis.

Prior to withdrawing from The Players, Woods’ only PGA Tour appearance of 2024 so far came at The Genesis Invitational where he withdrew after seven holes of the second round due to illness.

Highlights from Tiger Woods’ first round at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Golf Course.

He posted on social media later in the day stating he was already on the road to recovery and spoke of his disappointment at not being able to continue his round.

At present, he is one of 83 players set to tee up at Augusta National in three weeks’ time for the first major of the year.

There are still opportunities for players to earn a spot at The Masters by winning either the upcoming Valspar Championship, Houston Open or the Valero Texas Open. Other routes in are to be handed an exemption from tournament organisers, or to be inside the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking on Monday April 1.
