Tiger Woods is set to play The Masters at Augusta, with the tournament added to the 15-time major champion’s schedule.

The five-time Masters champion was included on the list of players set to compete at the first men’s major of the year, with the news confirmed on his website on Friday.

Woods will speak to the media as part of pre-tournament press conferences on Tuesday.

The 48-year-old is scheduled to talk at 4pm UK and Irish time, in between reigning champion Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy.

Woods last played competitively at the Genesis Invitational in February where he was forced to withdraw midway through the second round due to influenza.

Woods has not spoken publicly since the withdrawal, where he had made his first appearance of 2024 and just his seventh at an official PGA Tour event since The Masters in November 2020, with Woods playing a limited schedule due to injuries in recent seasons.

But the American is now set for a 26th appearance at The Masters. He made the cut at Augusta last year to tie the tournament record for consecutive cuts made, but had to withdraw before the third round because of plantar fasciitis.
