Five-time Masters champion Tiger Woods, who is trying to come back from serious leg and foot injuries he suffered in a car wreck about 14 months ago, played 18 holes at Augusta National Golf Club on Tuesday, sources told ESPN.
Woods, 46, played all 18 holes with his son, Charlie, and PGA Tour pro Justin Thomas, his close friend, sources said.
“He played every one of them,” a source told ESPN. “He looked good to me.”
Woods and his team arrived Tuesday morning at Augusta Regional Airport on his Gulfstream private jet, stirring anticipation on social media that he was preparing to play in the Masters. Augusta National, because of its many hills and length, is considered one of the most difficult walks in competitive golf.
This past weekend, a since-deleted video emerged of Woods playing at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida.
Woods is listed among the expected 91 participants for next week’s Masters, the first major championship of the season. But he’s yet to officially say whether he’s playing.
