Woods still on Masters interview schedule

RSS

With one week until the start of the Masters, Tiger Woods is still listed among the 94-man field. 

Augusta National announced its pre-tournament interview schedule Thursday, and Woods is scheduled to appear at 1 p.m. ET Tuesday – unless he withdraws before then.

Unlike a PGA Tour event, the Masters does not have a commitment deadline, so Woods could simply show up, register and compete in the event.

Woods hasn’t played since Feb. 2, when he withdrew following the opening round in Dubai because of a back injury, and there have been few updates on his progress.

Last week, Woods went on a media tour to promote his new book, about his momentous 1997 Masters victory. He said that he hoped to play in the first major of the year and was “trying everything.”

Woods hasn’t teed it up in the Masters two of the past three years. He has played only seven competitive rounds since August 2015.
