Tiger Woods claimed the PGA Tour is 'heading in the right direction' with LIV Golf after finishing dead last at the 2024 Masters.

Woods, 48, carded a five-over 77 on Sunday in his 100th round at Augusta National. 

NEW: PGA Tour winner makes wild accusation about Tiger Woods after The Masters

It meant he finished dead last at the first major of the year having posted rounds of 73, 72 and 82 earlier in the week. 

An exhausted Woods confirmed to reporters after his 26th Masters appearance that he plans to enter all three remaining majors in 2024.


The PGA Championship will be played over 13-19 May at Valhalla and the U.S. Open heads to Pinehurst over 10-16 June. 

The 152d Open will be played at Royal Troon in July. Woods plans to be at all three. 

"I'm going to do my homework going forward at Pinehurst, Valhalla and Troon," Woods said. 

Asked what his game plan was for next month's major, Woods said: "Just keep lifting, keep the motor going. Keep the body going.

"Hopefully the practice sessions will keep getting longer."

In March, Woods and the PGA Tour's player directors met with LIV chairman and PIF governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan. 

PIF, Saudi Arabia's vast sovereign wealth fund, bankrolls the breakaway tour. 

It was not immediately clear how constructive that meeting was and how close both sides were to consummating last June's framework agreement.

A reporter asked Woods what his impressions of Al-Rumayyan were and how close the sides are to making peace. 

"I don't know if we're closer, but certainly we're headed in the right direction," Woods said.

Woods' comment will draw sighs from those golf fans who are fatigued with the disruption in men's professional golf. 

Although the talk this week has been very much on the golf, the LIV/PGA Tour schism still cast a small shadow over the major. 

Breakaway tour Bryson DeChambeau played his way into contention over the first 54 holes and Jon Rahm was the defending champion. 

And LIV Golf commissioner Greg Norman also turned up to support his players

Legendary golfer Tom Watson reportedly dampened the mood at Rahm's dinner on Tuesday evening.

Woods added: "That was a very positive meeting, and I think both sides came away from the meeting feeling positive."

On Friday, Woods made history by breaking the record of consecutive cuts made at the Masters. 

By playing his way into the weekend, Woods pulled one clear of Gary Player and Fred Couples with 24 consecutive cuts made. 

Asked how he rates his performance this week, Woods said: "It was a good week. It was a good week all around. 

"I think that coming in here, not having played a full tournament in a very long time, it was a good fight on Thursday and Friday. 

"Unfortunately yesterday it didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to."
