Is Tiger Woods actually going to play in The Masters next month?

For now, that possibility appears to be on the table. Woods is still listed as one of the competitors for The Masters on the major tournament's official website.

Woods, the 2019 Masters champion, is about one year removed from his serious car accident in Southern California.

Augusta National is arguably his favorite course in the world, though, so perhaps he's interested in making his comeback there.

Woods is listed in the field for The Masters on the official website. That doesn't mean he's 100 percent playing, but it does mean he hasn't dropped out yet.

Woods had said in February that he was unsure when he would play again.

“I wish I could tell you when I’m playing again,’’ Woods said in Los Angeles in February. “I want to know, but I don’t. My golf activity has been very limited. I can chip and putt really well and hit short irons very well, but I haven’t done any long stuff seriously.

“I’m still working on the walking part. My foot was a little messed up there about a year ago, so the walking part is something that I’m still working on, working on strength and development in that. It takes time. What’s frustrating is it’s not at my timetable. I want to be at a certain place, but I’m not.’’

Woods is probably still a ways away from seriously competing, but The Masters could be a nice stepping stone for his comeback.

Fans would certainly enjoy it.

The Masters are set to be played in Augusta, Georgia from April 7 through April 10.
