Tiger Woods' chances to play the 2017 Masters appear slim

Tiger Woods' chances to play the 2017 Masters appear slim

Tiger Woods said Monday that he is "trying everything" in hopes of being able to return to competition in three weeks at the Masters.

Woods appeared on the show to promote his new book, "The 1997 Masters: My Story", celebrating the 20th anniversary of his infamous performance at the event.

"I love that event".

The 41-year-old has played only seven competitive rounds since making his comeback after nearly 16 months out following back surgery in September 2015, and his latest setback was expected to rule him out of teeing up at the first major of the year.

We're not doctors, but Tiger, who hasn't played since withdrawing from the Dubai Desert Classic on February 3 with back spasms, looked pretty spry. I can tell you this, nobody spoke to him (Wacker); so how he could know something that Tiger and I don't know is comical.

The former world number one only made his return from a long-standing back injury at the end of 2016, but has since only completed one full-field event, when he missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in January. "He's got other things in his life that he's interested in and it's not as if it's just golf".

The grand prize victor will be publicly announced on Rita's social media sites on Friday, April 7. It's the first day of spring, and that means you can get a free frozen treat.

"I'm trying", Woods said. "He's working hard at getting better, he's working hard at progressing". I haven't been able to train like I used to or practice like I used to.

Woods has not been in public since the Dubai withdrawal.

Woods was scheduled to play in the Genesis Open, Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational but wasn't physically ready.

"I think the good thing is mentally he's in a good place,"McIlroy said at the time".

On Saturday, Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, issued a statement to the Golf Channel in which he refuted a report which said the golfer was unlikely to play the Masters. "There's not been a decision one way or another - I couldn't give you a fair assessment, but to say it's doubtful is an absolutely inaccurate statement".
