AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Five-time Masters champion Tiger Woods will put his surgically repaired right leg to the test as he begins his pursuit of a sixth green jacket.
The 46-year-old Woods is competing for the first time since severely injuring his leg in a car accident in February 2021.
The rolling hills at Augusta National provide a challenge.
The elevation changes are unlike any golfers see regularly on the PGA Tour.
Woods says he feels he can be competitive despite not playing competitively for 18 months and that a lot of it will depend on how his leg holds up.
