Masters first round tee times CONFIRMED with Tiger Woods in group with Louis Oosthuizen and Joaquin Niemann

April 5, 2022

TIGER WOODS has been grouped with Louis Oosthuizen and Joaquin Niemann with tee times now confirmed for his big return on Thursday.

The 46-year-old legend has confirmed he IS in the Masters field.

That is unless the five-time winner suffers another injury setback over the next 48 hours.

Now fans have been provided with the exact time they can tune in to witness his remarkable comeback in two days’ time.

Woods will tee off at 3:34pm (GMT) after he was grouped with 39-year-old South African Oosthuizen and Chile’s Niemann, 23, in the first round of The Masters.

Confirming his planned participation, just 14 months after nearly having his leg amputated following a horrific car crash, the American said: “As of right now, I feel like I am going to play. I'm going to play nine more holes tomorrow.

“My recovery has been good. I've been very excited about how I've recovered each and every day, and that's been the challenge. 

“That's why I came up here and tested it out for 27 holes because we played the par-3 course as well. But it's about the recovery. 

“How am I going to get all the swelling out and recover for the next day? 

“My team has been fantastic and worked very hard. So we've got another day of nine more holes and then come game time.”

Woods added: “It's just a matter of what my body is able to do the next day and the recovery. That's the hard part. 

“Yes, we push it and try and recover the best we possibly can that night and see how it is the next morning. 

“Then all the activations and going through that whole process again, and you warm it up, and then you warm it back down, or test it out, and then you've got to cool it back down. “You've got to do that day-in and day-out.

“It gets agonising and teasing because of simple things that I would normally just go do that would take now a couple hours here and a couple hours there to prep and then wind down. So it adds more time on both sides of it.”
