Tiger Woods is ready to start swinging again. The exiled golfer announced today that he will take part in April’s Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Woods discussed his decision to return to the game on his website:
The Masters is where I won my first major, and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta…
I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy, and I am continuing my treatment. Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.
Underlining that last sentiment is Tiger’s wife Elin Nordegren, who still isn’t wearing her wedding ring despite the couple’s apparent reunion. While countless tabs have reported her continued disenfranchisement from her husband, she has yet to comment publicly since the Thanksgiving car accident and discoveries of infidelity that derailed their marriage and his career.
