Tiger Woods says it's still too soon to know about the Masters
Tiger Woods does not sound optimistic about his 2014 Masters chances.
In a press conference on Monday introducing a new sponsor for Woods' tournament in Maryland the man of the hour was asked about whether his balky back will allow him to play in the Masters.
His response was less-than-enthusiastic.
"For Augusta, it’s still a little too soon (to know), to be honest with you," he said. "That’s kind of the frustrating thing about this.
"I had a couple weeks off, was getting treatment and trying to get ready for Augusta. As of right now, it’s still too soon. As I said, that’s very frustrating."
As you can see in the graphic at the top, we're just 17 days from Augusta and Tiger Woods seems like he's more out of the tournament than in it.
And even if he does tee it up in 17 days, who thinks he'll be full strength?
[Nobody but these people raise their hands]
With my life on the line I still say he plays because I think if he can walk he will play (and from all reports he's still able to walk at this point).
But we're kind of coming down to it here on time and Woods still sounds pretty indecisive.
