Tiger Woods drops a hint about his comeback

There weren’t regular updates about Woods’ health condition when he was receiving treatment at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. But Woods recently posted major news about his recovery on Twitter.

“Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery. I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks,” Woods mentioned in his statement. 

“I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day,” he added. 

This message appeared a such a sign of positivity to Woods’ long-time fans. It meant everything to them when the golf legend fought all adversity and won The 2019 Masters. But will the 45-year- old create a similar hype by taking part in The 2021 Masters?

The prestigious tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club will take place from April 8-11, but it is uncertain if Tiger Woods will recover in time. Woods suffered major injuries to his leg and the doctors used a rod to stabilize the screws fitted to his badly injured ankle. 

At this moment, Tiger Woods is willingly working hard to get back on the tour once again. He is a fighter, but The 2021 Masters might be out of his sight for the moment. The first Major of the year starts in about a fortnight, but we might not see Woods gracing the event with his presence.
