Golf Legend Pours Cold Water On Tiger Woods Playing At The Masters

Tiger Woods would “struggle” to cope with the demands of the Augusta course at The Masters next week, according to a former winner.

Ian Woosnam, who earned his green jacket in 1991, has reminded people just how hard the course is as the pace gathers ahead of the grand showpiece.

Woods has fuelled rumours of a comeback by jetting into the Georgia venue this week for a practice round.

He sustained serious injuries to his leg in a car accident in 2021 and his only competitive appearance since came at the 36-hole PNC Championship alongside son Charlie in December a few months ago.

“I haven’t seen his name withdrawn from it,” Woosnam told BoyleSports.

“But after watching the tournament with his son, he still looked like he was struggling a little bit.

“People have to remember how difficult it is to walk around Augusta – even if you’re feeling fit, it’s a hard walk.”

Bryson DeChambeau can make Augusta look ordinary if he gets it right just like Woods did in 2019, adds Woosnam.

“Bryson hasn’t played much golf. He played last week in the matchplay and I don’t know if he’s playing this week,” said Woosnam.

“If he can go as far as he hits the ball and gets it right he can actually make Augusta look very ordinary.

“When Tiger came on he hit four over par then all of a sudden he won the tournament. It just shows that length is a massive benefactor if you can hit it far, because you can go in with shorter irons the whole time.”

Meanwhile, Woosnam has sent a warning to a major player ahead of The Masters, HERE.
