Tiger Woods hasn’t given up hopes of an unlikely comeback win at The Masters after battling his way into the weekend at Augusta National.

Woods, who played his first competitive event since November 2020 after last February’s career-threatening car accident, followed an opening round 71 with a two-over 74 in windy conditions and was nine strokes behind halfway leader Scottie Scheffler.

The 15-time major champion was left behind in a twoball alongside Joaquin Niemann after Louis Oosthuizen withdrew due to injury, with Woods at risk of missing the cut after bogeying four of his first five holes on Friday afternoon.

Woods reversed some of the damage with a tap-in birdie on the par-five eighth and produced a brilliant approach in the par-four tenth to get another shot, only to bogey his next two holes.

The 46-year-old reacted again to pick up back-to-back birdies from the 13th and came close to making a further breakthrough on his final hole, with Woods at one and in the top-20 going into the final two rounds .

“I don’t feel as good as I’d like to feel,” Woods admitted. “It doesn’t matter. Like I said, I have a chance to go into the weekend. Hopefully I’ll have one of those lightbulb moments and turn it on at the weekend and get it done.

“You’ve seen guys do it with a chance to get into the back nine. If you go to the back nine in five or six, anything can happen. I have to get myself there, that’s the key.

“Tomorrow is going to be a big day. It’s going to be cool. It’s going to be tough. Again, the wind has to start blowing again and there will be tough scoring conditions. I have to go out to do my business and in the red and give myself a chance to go into that back nine on Sunday.

“Obviously there are a few people who don’t have a hard time out there. Scottie [Scheffler] and JT [Justin Thomas] do their business out there, but hey, I made the decision. I have a chance to go into the weekend.”
