Tiger Woods Currently Listed in 2022 Masters Field

The 15-time Major winner has not played in an official PGA Tour event since suffering serious injuries in February 2021.

Tiger Woods Masters

With two weeks until the start of the 2022 Masters at Augusta National, golf fans received another reason to be excited about the first major of the season. Tiger Woods, a five-time Masters champion, is currently still listed as part of the field for the upcoming tournament, which begins on Thursday, April 7.

Phil Mickelson, who was reportedly “either told or strongly encouraged not to come” to Augusta, was listed on The Masters’ website as a past champion that will not be participating. Woods, however, is not part of this list, sending golf fans around the world into a frenzy.

Woods hasn’t played in an official PGA Tour event since his car accident in February 2021. That incident left ‘Big Cat’ with broken bounds and compound fractures in both of his legs. However, Woods has appeared on the course several times over the last few months. Most notably, he was in contention for the 2021 PNC Championship alongside his son, Charlie, back in December.

The golf legend has yet to make a statement on his potential return at The Masters, but he hasn’t ruled it out at this point, either. To be fair, Augusta is known for being one of the toughest walks on Tour, making things a bit more complicated to envision. Will Woods’ legs be able to hold up through a four-day, 12-plus mile walk? Nonetheless, in his first competitive tournament in well over a year? That seems like a hefty ask.

Still, the idea of Tiger Woods returning for The Masters is a beautiful picture to paint in golf fans’ minds. If we have learned anything over the years on the PGA Tour, it’s to never count Tiger out.

For what it’s worth, Woods is currently listed at +5000 to take home his sixth Masters title.
