Tiger Woods has announced today that he will return to tournament play at the very proper and well-behaved August Masters, April 8th through April 11th. Woods has 4 Masters wins on his scorecards, and holds the record for the youngest Masters winner at the age of 21 with a 12-stroke lead:
"The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect...After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta. The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think August is where I need to be, even though it's been a while since I last played...I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment. Although I'm returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life. When I finally got into a position to think about competitive golf again it became apparent to me that the Masters would be the earliest I could play," said Woods.
