Five-time champion Tiger Woods is set to compete in next week’s Masters after he was included on the pre-tournament interview schedule.

Woods had previously implied he would be involved at Augusta during February’s Genesis Invitational when he spoke about the potential awkwardness among PGA Tour and LIV Golf players that might await at the Champions Dinner.

It was also noted that week he had been yet to walk 72 holes over four days this calendar year as he continues to manage his fitness in light of the injuries sustained during his life-threatening car crash in 2021.

Woods, who won his fifth Masters title in 2019, has been playing to a truncated tournament schedule as a result of his recovery from the injuries he suffered.
