Tiger Watch: Tracking Tiger Woods and his Masters 2022 decision

Tiger Woods wasn't ready to officially say on Sunday that he'll play in the 86th Masters, which is scheduled to begin Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club.

But in a statement on Twitter, Woods did say that he would be arriving here Sunday to continue practicing and preparing to play.

Woods, a five-time Masters champion, said it will be a "game-time decision." It would be his first appearance in a regular PGA Tour event in more than 17 months, 

After getting his prep work in Tuesday morning, Woods came to the interview room and made it (nearly) official.

"As of right now, I feel like I am going to play," he said during a 20-minute question-and-answer session.

Woods has not played a competitive round of golf since the 2020 Masters at Augusta National. 

He has won this event five times, most recently in 2019. He will find out later Tuesday when he will play when the tee times are released.
