Tiger Woods has just announced he’ll return to professional golf at The Masters.  I would have thought he’d try to get one competitive round in before that to warm himself up, likely Bay Hill.

The Masters is a perfect place for Tiger to return because of the high level of security and the strict rules enforced on the grounds at Augusta National.

Will Tiger win or contend?  I sort of doubt it, but he is Tiger Woods.

Tiger’s Press Release Below

Tiger Woods announced Tuesday that he will begin his 2010 season at the Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in April.

“The Masters is where I won my first major, and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.

“The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it’s been awhile since I last played.

“I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy, and I am continuing my treatment. Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.

“When I finally got into a position to think about competitive golf again, it became apparent to me that the Masters would be the earliest I could play. I called both Joe Lewis and Arnold Palmer and expressed my regrets for not attending the Tavistock Cup and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. I again want to thank them both for their support and their understanding. Those are fantastic tournaments, and I look forward to competing in them again.

“I would also like to thank the Augusta National members and staff for their support. I have deep appreciation for everything that they do to create a wonderful event for the benefit of the game.”

    At this point Tiger needs to do what’s best for Tiger. What happens now will depend for the most part on Tiger’s performance and personal behavior.
