Yes, he’s said he has no idea when he’s returning. Yes, Augusta National is one of the hardest walks on Tour. Yes, it’s hard to imagine his leg is anywhere close to 100 percent.

Woods and his son, Charlie, almost won the PNC Championship less than a year removed from his single-car crash that left his lower body in shambles.
And before you say it, yes, the PNC Championship is just, as Woods put it, a “hit and giggle.” But they almost won and looked pretty good doing it.
