The question of when Tiger Woods will return to golf is one of the biggest talking points in sports right now. However, in a tweet posted by ‘The Fried Egg’, it could be sooner rather than later, with the tweet stating: “I heard several people in South Florida saying that Tiger Woods was a multiple medalist this week. . Joey (his caddy) was also in town to walk.”
Recently, the field was announced for the Masters, which will begin the week of April 4-10. Although Phil Mickelson will miss the tournament for the first time in 28 years, the American is still taking a break from the game. Woods is still around, with the inclusion causing Golf to have a slight meltdown on Twitter.
I’ve heard several people in South Florida say that Tiger Woods has medaled multiple times this week. Joey was also in town to walk.March 27, 2022
In February 2021, Woods was involved in a serious car accident which nearly resulted in the amputation of his right leg. However, since the accident, Woods has made an incredible recovery, with the 46-year-old runner-up alongside his son, Charlie, to the 2021 PNC Championship, as well as being inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
One thing that has been kept under wraps is when Woods will return to competitive golf, with the 15-time Major winner constantly saying he still has a long way to go before he returns to competitive golf.
Earlier this month, a spokesperson close to Woods said it was still too early for Tiger to decide if he would attend this year’s Masters, but Woods said he would be in Augusta for the event next month and that he would be present at the Dinner of Champions on Tuesday of Masters week. He also didn’t rule out the possibility of playing Wednesday’s Par-3 contest.
Speaking at the Genesis Invitational, which he hosted but did not play last month, Woods did not make a commitment to participate in the Par-3 contest, saying: “It’s the competitive nature , how much it takes you mentally, physically, emotionally. I haven’t prepared for any of this. Going for a walk, I can do that. Am I going to hurt? Shit, yes, but I can do that. Whether I do that or not, I don’t know.
Tiger also added, “I can still play, but I’m in a cart. Being a weekend warrior is easy, it’s not that hard. Hit your ball, jump in a cart, roll, barely get out of the cart, grab your club and hit the next one. And probably the longest walk you have is from, what, the cart to the green and back. I can do it, it’s not that hard, but walking on a golf course is a whole different matter. I have a long way to go.
However, if ‘The Fried Egg’ tweet is true then maybe Tiger will play more than the par 3 contest, but for now we can only hope we see the five-time Masters winner play at Augusta National in two weeks…
