Tiger Woods says he's 'trying everything' to play the 2017 Masters
Will Tiger Woods play in the 2017 Masters? We may not find out for another two weeks
Tiger Woods, who has not played since withdrawing from the Dubai Desert Classic with back spasms, said Monday on “Good Morning America” that he is “trying everything” to be cleared physically to play at Augusta National in two weeks.
“God, I hope so,” Woods told “GMA” host Michael Strahan. “I’m trying. I’m trying everything to be able to get back and play. I love that event. It’s meant so much to me in my life. It was the first major I ever played back in 1995. It has so much history and meaning to me, I’d love to get back.”
Woods appeared on the show to promote his new book, “The 1997 Masters: My Story,” celebrating the 20th anniversary of his infamous performance at the event.

“I need to get back physically,” said Woods. “I know the mind is sharp. I just need to get the body willing to do it. I haven’t been able to train like I used to or practice like I used to. It’s been harder. My priorities have changed a lot. My kids now dominate my life, and I think that’s a good thing.”
Woods went on to compete against Strahan in a putting contest and actually gave an emphatic fist pump at the end. It’s tough to draw conclusions based on a putting contest in an air-conditioned building in New York, but I do have to say Woods looks better than I thought he would.
Woods has until the first day of the Masters on Thursday, April 6 to decide whether he is playing.
