Tiger Woods Will Return to Golf at the Masters
Holy sh*t. Will he play in the Par 3 Tournament because that would be f*cking awesome. TIGER!!!!!!!! Here's his statement:
“The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta.
“The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it's been a while since I last played.
“I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment. Although I'm returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.”
MORE: First two rounds will be broadcast by ESPN. If Tiger doesn't play in the Par 3 tournament, his return will come on Thursday, April 8. It will be ESPN's biggest ratings ever. If he's in the hunt on Sunday, it could get bigger ratings than the Super Bowl for CBS.
MORE: Tiger's return at the Masters makes complete sense. There is no sporting event in the world more controlled than the Masters. Augusta will be on absolute lockdown. TMZ might have to set up their satellite office in Atlanta, it's that locked down. Any rowdy spectators will just be thrown out. Photographers will be on a tight leash. MORE: Will Tiger play the Tavistock Cup next Monday at Isleworth just to get a little competition under his belt? Probably not, if it hasn't been announced yet. It's not like could slip in there: the whole thing is broadcast by the Golf Channel.
