Tiger Woods Placed On Masters Tournament Field List For 2024

The PGA Tour has reported that Hall of Famer Tiger Woods has been listed as active for the current Masters Tournament field list. This listing points to Tiger possibly competing in the Augusta National which starts next month on April 11 with pre-tournament dates of April 8-10.

The 48-year-old golfer injured himself last year during the third round of the 2023 Masters stating he had plantar fasciitis. He had surgery performed on his ankle shortly after pulling out of the tournament. He was able to come back from the surgery and played at the Hero World Challenge and PNC Championship last fall. He did make his first tour start since the surgery last month when he was active for The Genesis Invitational. He opened with a 1-over 72 but withdrew from the tournament on the seventh hole of the second round. The 2023 Masters was the only PGA tournament he played in last year after competing in the Masters, PGA Championship, and Open Championship the previous year in 2022, according to the Bleacher Report.

Tiger hasn’t made a tour start since The Genesis Invitational but there is speculation he will be playing at the Augusta National since his name is on the Masters Tournament list, although he has not confirmed his participation.

Last month, it was announced that Tiger, along with other PGA Tour players are set to become equity holders in PGA Tour Enterprises, a newly established for-profit company, after a $3 billion investment from the Strategic Sports Group, according to MSN. The deal marks a significant moment in sports history now that the players will now own a share of the PGA Tour, a concept unprecedented in professional sports.

Tiger has played in 25 Masters, winning five of them (1997, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2019) – and is one win away from matching Jack Nicklaus’ record of six green jackets (the green jacket goes to the winner of the tournament). He is also tied with Fred Couples and Gary Player for making the cut in 23 consecutive starts at the Augusta National.
