AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – In the strongest indication that Tiger Woods might play the Masters, a newspaper reports that his private plane has been spotted at a local airport.
The Augusta Chronicle reported Tuesday that a plane matching the tail number of his Gulfstream G5 was parked at the terminal for private aircraft at Augusta Regional Airport. A spokesman for Woods didn’t immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press.
Woods has not played since he withdrew at Torrey Pines in the first round on Feb. 5. He said a week later that his scores were not acceptable and that he wouldn’t return until his game was tournament ready.
Woods has fallen out of the top 100 in the world for the first time since 1996. The Masters starts April 9.
