Tiger Woods has posted an official update on his social media channels ahead of his decision to play at The Masters.
Woods has informed his fans that he will travel to Augusta National today to continue his preparation for the event he sensationally won in 2019.
"I will be heading up to Augusta today to continue my preparation and practice," said Woods.
"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."

The 15-time major champion described it as a "game-time" decision which would suggest he could leave it until the last minute before he potentially tees off on April 7.
The 46-year-old travelled to Augusta earlier in the week with Justin Thomas and his son Charlie. He played a practice round and tested his body on the hilly terrain.
Golf fans and experts have grown increasingly confident that Woods will return to the event that he has won five times before. The last time he played on the PGA Tour was at the rescheduled Masters tournament in November 2020.
This is the first official update that Woods himself has posted during what has been a period of keen speculation and anticipation. The 15-time major champion is still on the official entry list.
Woods was recently recorded hitting shots at Medalist Golf Club in Florida alongside his caddie Joe LaCava. This is the most encouraging sign yet that he could tee it up on Thursday.
