Tiger Woods announces return at the Masters

It's over. The four month long hiatus of Tiger Woods is officially complete. This morning, Tiger Woods posted on his blog that he will return to the PGA Tour at the Masters next month.

"I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta," Woods said.

He said that he already told Arnold Palmer that he will not be attending the King's tournament in Orlando.

Any way you slice it, this is going to be a very memorable Masters.

"I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it's been awhile since I last played," Woods said.

Golf blogger Trailing Tiger retrieved this statement from Augusta National chairman Billy Payne on Tiger's return:

"We support Tiger's decision to return to competitive golf beginning at this year's Masters tournament. Additionally, we support and encourage his stated commitment to continue the significant work required to rebuild his personal and professional life."

UPDATE: PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem has now weighed in on Tiger's return.
We were pleased to learn that Tiger Woods will be playing the Masters in a few weeks. He has invested a lot of time taking steps, both in his personal and professional life, in order to prepare for his return. We all wish him and his family the best as he rejoins the Tour.
To be honest, I was expecting champagne and confetti from Finchem. Maybe he missed the memo?
