Injuries have plagued Tiger Woods in recent years, but he is playing well and it would be unwise to rule him out at Augusta National.
Never Write Tiger Woods Off At Augusta National
Many believed Tiger Woods was finished. He simply couldn’t play anymore let alone compete thanks to several ravaging back injuries and off-course issues. But if there is one golfer to never bet against it is Tiger Woods.
Since coming back he pulled off a miraculous victory at the season-ending Tour Championship and could have had victories at the Valspar Championship, Open Championship and US PGA.
Currently he is also showing form too with a tied-5th at the WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay and tied-10th at the WGC-Mexico Championship.
So Tiger is on some sort of form which should make any golfer or fan take notice. And what is clear, is Woods has a love affair with Augusta National like no other.
Since making his Masters debut in 1995 as an amateur, the 43-year old has featured twenty-one times in golf’s most prestigious event putting together 11 top-5 finishes.
It did not take long for Tiger to get accustomed to Augusta National. It took him just three events to record his record-breaking win there in 1997 where he won by 12 shots. He was only 21-years old.

He has missed the cut just once; in 1996 at his second Masters tournament. That disappointment clearly did not effect his confidence as he would blitz the field a year later.
Let’s not forget what he has achieved in the game. Tiger Woods is a 14-time Major Champion. He has won 107 times around the world in his professional career. It would be unwise to rule out someone with that pedigree; regardless of his injury woes.

As alluded to above, many people think Tiger is done and will not win another Major, but Woods has defied expectations his whole life.
The 14-time Major Champion may not be the same player that dominated world golf for prolonged periods, but he is still Tiger Woods and as long as Tiger Woods is competing, you simply cannot write him off. Especially at Augusta.
