Woods announced he will return to competitive golf at the Masters. "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," Woods told his official web site. "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."
Notes: Woods says he will not play in the unofficial Tavistock Cup or the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Several reports had him returning for those events ahead of the Masters. Will Tiger be as dominant as the past at the Masters without playing any warmup events? Will his golf game suffer from his personal turmoil the past four months? All these become the biggest story lines in golf, but at least the golf world now knows Woods will be a part of the competitive golf landscape for the rest of 2010.
