Tiger Watch 2015 continues.
According to a report by the Augusta Chronicle, Tiger Woods’ plane was parked at the Augusta Regional Airport Tuesday morning. A plane matching the tail numbers of Woods’ Gulfstream G5 reportedly sat in the private aircraft terminal.
It’s common for Tour players to visit Augusta National and play practice rounds in the weeks before the first major of the season, which begins next week.
The 14-time major champ has not revealed if he will play the 2015 Masters. He does not have a deadline to announce one way or the other.
Woods, who sat out the 2014 Masters due to back surgery, has dominated the Masters like no other player since Jack Nicklaus. In 19 events, Woods has four victories, two runner-ups and seven top-5 finishes, including a period from 2001-05 where Woods won three out of five Masters. In his third appearance at Augusta in 1997, Woods romped the field to the tune of 18-under final mark and a 12-stroke victory for his first career major. Overall, Nicklaus is the only player with more green jackets hanging in his closet. Woods and Arnold Palmer own four each. Only eight players all-time have more than two Masters victories.
The last time Woods – who has not played since withdrawing from the Farmers Insurance Open on February 8th – was this inactive before a major was 2010, when he returned from a five-month layoff and finished tied for fourth in the 2010 Masters.
