Tiger Woods has arrived at Augusta National looking as cool as ice ahead of deciding whether to play at The Masters.
Woods turned up at Magnolia Lane at 3.20 pm with his caddie Joe LaCava to hit balls on the driving range and to play a practice round, as he said he would in an official statement earlier in the day.
In his statement, the 46-year-old said he will make a "game-time" decision on playing at the event. It is the 25th anniversary of his first Masters victory in 1997.
"I will be heading up to Augusta today to continue my preparation and practice. It will be a game-time decision on whether I compete. Congratulations to 16-year-old Anna Davis on an amazing win at the @anwagolf and good luck to all the kids in the @DriveChipPutt," Woods tweeted on Sunday.

It was also announced earlier that Woods, who has won The Masters five times in his career, will be addressing the press in Georgia on Tuesday morning.
Golf fans and experts have grown in excitement and anticipation for Woods' participation in this year's Masters tournament. With four days to go, his name is still on the official entry list.

Earlier this week, Woods travelled to Augusta National with Justin Thomas and his son Charlie to play a practice round and test his body on the hilly terrain.
If he was to sensationally return next week, it would be his first appearance on the PGA Tour since the very same tournament that was rescheduled for November 2020.
