A few weeks, the 15-time major champion announced he is back home and continuing his recovery. “Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery,” he said in a short message for fans. “I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks.”
Unfortunately, the accident meant Tiger won’t be competing at the Master this weekend. However, fans are just happy he will completely recover from his injuries and get the chance to watch from home.
Meanwhile, those at the course will pay tribute to the five-time Masters champion. According to Bleacher Report, the PGA announced a seat will be left open at the Champions Dinner on Tuesday night.

Can he finally cash in at a major again?
