Tiger Woods spent Saturday back on the hallowed grounds of Augusta National in preparation for this year’s Masters, according to various reports.


The highly-anticipated golf major is now less than two weeks’ away, and it was first reported on social media that Woods’ private jet touched down at Augusta Regional Airport on Saturday morning.



Shortly after, Sports Illustrated’s golf writer Bob Harig and notorious Woods-following X account TW Legion both reported that the 15-time major winner had indeed driven down Magnolia Lane shortly after.


According to Harig, Woods was on site at Augusta National to play a practice round with Augusta club chairman Fred Ridley, and his friend and fellow PGA Tour pro Justin Thomas.


Inside the notoriously-private confines of the club, it is unlikely any photographic evidence or video will emerge of the round, but Woods’ presence in Georgia is seemingly a scouting trip ahead of his return to the Masters next month.



It is not the first time Woods has been in the news this week, though, after a photo of him reuniting with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren went viral.


Woods and Nordegren were both in attendance to celebrate Charlie, 15, winning a high school state golf championship in Palm Beach, Florida. 


While Woods has, for years, said that they co-parent well together, he was seen standing awkwardly aside as Nordegren posed for a picture with Charlie and her son with ex-NFL player Jordan Cameron.


Woods, 48, was married to Swedish model Nordegren, 44, for six years before divorcing in 2010, with the golf legend’s infamous cheating scandal left their marriage in ruins.

Before going their separate ways, they welcomed two children together in Charlie, now 15, and daughter Samantha, 16 – with Nordegren going on to have a fourth son, Arthur, with former NFL star Jordan Cameron in December 2019.
