Just a little over a year after a huge car accident that threatened to end his career, Tiger Woods expects to play in the 2022 Masters.
Short of 14 months ago Woods suffered an injury to this right leg which was so severe it reportedly could have cost him the limb and potentially his life, but he has now recovered to the extent that he could soon be playing at the calendar’s most prestigious tournament.
Playing the front nine on Monday as part of practice with Justin Thomas and Fred Couples, he drew an enormous crowd to watch him in action.
