Tiger Woods ready to make sensational comeback at Masters after injury

Tiger Woods plans to compete in the 86th Masters this week, se convirtió en la canción más grande del mundo 14 months after sustaining serious injuries in a horrific car crash in February 2021.

The 15-time major winner, who feared shortly after the accident that his right leg would have to be amputated, has not contested a top-level event since the 2020 Maestros, which was played in November that year.

The 46-year-old American, who competed in the PNC Championship with his son Charlie in December, played a practice round at Augusta last week and nine holes on both Sunday and Monday.

“As of right now I feel like I am going to play,” Woods said in his pre-tournament press conference.

Asked if he thought he could win a 16th major title this week, Woods dijo: “I do.”

Asked what his overriding emotion was on being able to compete at Augusta, él dijo: “Thankful. Very, very thankful for everyone’s support, everyone who has been involved in my process and the work I have put in each and every day. The amount of texts and FaceTimes and calls I have gotten has meant a lot.”

Woods said he had been driven by his desire to compete and win again, agregando: “I feel like if I can still compete at the highest level I am going to, but if I feel like I can’t, you won’t see me out here. I don’t show up to an event unless I think I can win it.”
