In the lineup for the 2024 Masters Tournament, scheduled from April 11th to 14th at Augusta, Georgia (USA), Tiger Woods is also listed. The 15-time Major champion, who was forced to withdraw from the prestigious Major during the third round in 2023 due to yet another injury, will return to competition for the first time since last February when he withdrew after six holes of the second round due to illness.

Subsequently, the Californian skipped both the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players, but now he is gearing up for a comeback at the pinnacle tournament.

Not to forget other prominent figures from the Arab Super League such as Bryson DeChambeau, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Joaquin Niemann, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, and Adrian Meronk.

Eldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods, born on December 30, 1975, is an American professional golfer whose achievements have solidified his status as one of the sport's all-time greats. With a remarkable career spanning decades, Woods has left an indelible mark on the world of golf.

Woods's ascent to professional golf stardom began in 1996 when he turned pro at the age of 20 after an illustrious junior, college, and amateur career. By April 1997, he had already secured three PGA Tour victories, including his first major triumph at the 1997 Masters, where he set a record by winning by a staggering 12 strokes.

Shortly thereafter, Woods claimed the number one spot in the Official World Golf Ranking, marking the beginning of his dominance in the sport. Throughout the early 2000s, Woods reigned supreme in golf, holding the top world ranking for extended periods, including an impressive stretch from August 1999 to September 2004 and again from June 2005 to October 2010.

During this time, he amassed an impressive collection of 13 major championships. However, the latter part of Woods's career was marred by personal struggles and injuries. Following a hiatus in 2009 to address marital issues, Woods faced setbacks both on and off the course.

Despite enduring multiple back surgeries and a significant drop in world rankings, Woods persevered. He made a triumphant return to competitive golf, culminating in notable victories at the Tour Championship in 2018 and the Masters Tournament in 2019, marking his first major win in 11 years.

Woods's resilience, talent, and enduring impact on the sport have earned him a place among the greatest athletes in modern history. Inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, his legacy continues to inspire generations of golfers worldwide.
