58% of golf fans believe that Tiger Woods will make a sensational return to golf at The Masters in just over a week.
GolfMagic ran a poll earlier today that asked golf fans if they believed Woods would make his first official appearance on the PGA Tour since The Masters in November 2020.

The reaction to our poll represents the growing optimism amongst golf fans and writers that Woods could defy the odds and tee it up.
The five-time holder of the Green Jacket is due to walk the course at Augusta National later today to test his body on the terrain and to see if he could play 72 holes.

One golf fan even took the time to track the legendary golfer's flight to Georgia earlier today. The golf world is waiting and holding its breath to hear of Woods' final decision.
On the Official Masters website, Woods is still in the field alongside the best players in the world which is an encouraging sign with just nine days until the first tee shots are hit on April 7.

The 46-year-old told Jim Nantz and Sir Nick Faldo in the commentary booth at the Genesis Invitational in February that he still wasn't sure if he could play at the famous event, but he will attend the Champions Dinner.
He mentioned that he could be capable of playing in the par-3 contest on Wednesday before the first championship day. In a press conference at this event in Lox Angeles, he said his age was holding back the speed of his recovery.
However, it seems his rehab has accelerated. The 15-time major champion was recently filmed hitting drives at Medalist Golf Club in Florida. It is fair to say that all the signs are there.
