Former world number one Tiger Woods has not given up hope of competing in next month’s U.S. masters and is trying everything he can to overcome back problems.
Woods returned to the PGA tour in January after a 17-month absence but has struggled with a nagging back problem.
Since returning this year woods missed the cut at the farmers insurance open and shot an opening-round 77 a week later in Dubai before withdrawing due to a back spasm. ………….he has not played a tournament since.
Woods, now ranked 742nd in the world, was speaking in new York where he is promoting his new book: “the 1997 masters: my story” about the first major title he won in record-breaking style.
Should the four-time master’s champion be unable to compete at Augusta national it would be the third time in four years that he has missed the tournament.
