Fifteen-time major winner Tiger Woods has his eyes set on winning major title No. 16 as he prepares for the 86th The Masters, which is scheduled to take place from April 7–10, 2022, at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.

Woods, who just recovered from a horrific car crash back in February of last year, plans to win the green jacket again after he won The Masters last in 2019.

Fellow pro golfer Bryson DeChambeau is glad to see Woods able to return to a major tournament again.

“It’s great to see his face,” DeChambeau told reporters. “I mean, I was walking down, I was teeing off on 3, and he was walking down 17. He just, like, jumped up and raised up, and we were both kind of air high fiving, like saying, ‘what’s up.’ It’s just great to see him in a positive frame of mind. I haven’t spoken to him much, but I have seen him and it seems likes he’s in a really great frame of mind and he wants to win.”

DeChambeau did not want to underestimate Woods and always sees the 46-year-old as a fierce competitor and athlete.

“Obviously, he’s determined to win,” he added. “He wants to come back here and win. Tiger is Tiger, and you can never count him out. He is one that may shock a lot of people if he does tee it up this week.”

The Masters this year will not be so easy for Tiger Woods since a lot of big names are also playing.

Last year’s champion Hideki Matsuyama is looking forward to retaining his title, alongside former world number one Rory McIlroy and the new world No.1 Scottie Scheffler, who took over from Jon Rahm after his win in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.
