(CNN)Tiger Woods has sparked speculation that he could make a shock return to golf at next week's Masters after it was widely reported that he has played a practice round at Augusta National.

The 15-time major champion has not played an official tournament after suffering serious leg injuries in a car crash in February 2021.

However, earlier this week, Woods was named among the 91 starters for the 2022 Masters, which begins on April 7.

And on Tuesday, Woods' private jet was reportedly spotted landing at an airport near Augusta, which fueled social media into a frenzy that he could feature at the major.

Rumors were heightened when reports emerged that the five-time Masters winner was playing a practice round at Augusta with his son, Charlie,

The PGA Tour even tweeted a photo of Woods swinging a club with the caption: "Tiger Woods is practicing today at Augusta National."

The Augusta course will have provided a stern test for Woods' physical condition due to the distances and elevation changes he'd have had to traverse.
