Tiger Woods "trying everything" to be fit in time for MastersFormer world No1 Tiger Woods insists he still hopes to be fit for next month’s Masters, despite scrapping plans to make his latest comeback at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Woods, 41, has completed just one tournament since 2015 due to persistent back problems and was last seen in competition six weeks ago when pulling out of the Dubai Desert Classic after a 77 in the first round.

“The mind is sharp, I just need to get the body willing to do it,” he added. “That’s the hard part – getting the prep time. I haven’t been able to train like I used to, practise like I used to. So it’s been hard.”
