According to Brian Biggane of the Palm Beach Post a decision on Tiger Woods' status for the 2014 Masters will be made "very, very shortly."

Woods had said last week he wasn't sure whether or not he would be able to compete because of his nagging back injury.

"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."

I'm not sure what a decision being made "very shortly" implies but I think it leans a little bit towards playing.

If you can't play, don't you wait until the very last minute to announce that just in case something changes?

That's how I would handle it, anyway. Of course, I dont' have five more majors to worry about.

Also: Tuesday is April Fool's Day. I am going to be a mess all day.
