The 2022 Masters is here with the first round starting on Thursday, April 7th. Golf’s biggest weekend is held at Augusta National in Augusta, Georgia. One of the main stories heading into Masters weekend is whether or not Tiger Woods will compete in the tournament.
On Tuesday, Woods said in a press conference that he is planning on playing in the tournament, but will test out nine more practice holes on Wednesday, April 6th. He could still withdraw, but his day-to-day status has him currently on track to play.
