According to Tiger Woods, Augusta National is a “player’s heaven” as he bids for a 15th major title. It is being a decade; he had bid for Augusta National after his back injury.
Since 2008 US Open triumphs where he won. He was out of the game. Many things came about him in media about which raised the question whether, he would ever come back to surpass the record of Jack Nicklaus of 18 major titles. At present, he has 14 major titles.
Woods has won Masters Titles in the year 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005, and his last top-10 finish at the Augusta National in the year 2013 was a tie for fourth.
According to Woods, he missed the “rush” of competing hard for a Green Jacket when he was sidelined himself from the game because of the back trouble for the year 2016 and 2017.
Now, after playing without pain following the spinal fusion surgery in last April, Woods is enjoying a return to the storied Georgia course.
Woods say “Being out on those greens, being creative and hitting putts is something which cannot be explained. There is no other golf course like Augusta in the world and in-fact there is no other golf tournament like this. It would not be wrong to say that it is the players’ heaven.”
Woods, with a second finish at the Valspar Championship and a tie in the fifth match at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, is now striving to play a match that feat after months.
About this he said “Even after playing so many games, I still feel like I am coming back, I am still getting comfortable with what my body can do. It seems like I am hitting and competing again. However, in all it feels good that I am back in the game after such a tough time.”
Rory: I can join the club.
Rory McIlroy’s bid for Masters Glory will be his fourth try at joining Woods in an elite club of five golfers who have completed a career Grand Slam.
