With The Masters only a week away, the anticipation is building in more ways than one. The first Major of the year is always a special occasion, but this year expectations are reaching a fever pitch thanks to the possible appearance of Tiger Woods.

The 46-year-old, who has won the event five times, is still named in the field to go to Augusta National, although he hasn’t played competitively since being involved in an accident car over a year ago. Recently, Woods played down suggestions that he might make a surprise comeback at the event. Speaking at February’s Genesis Invitational, which he hosted, Woods said: “I can still play, but I’m in a cart. Being a weekend warrior is easy, it’s not that hard. Hit your ball, jump in a cart, roll, barely get out of the cart, grab your club and hit the next one And the longest walk you have is probably from, what, the cart to the green and back. doing is not that hard, but walking on a golf course is of course a totally different matter I have a long way to go.

However, more recently, speculation has grown that the 15-time Major winner could use Augusta National to launch a sensational comeback. Rumors began to swirl last weekend that Woods had been seen walking a medalist, while Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis reported that Woods would exhaust all efforts to make his return to the Masters.

Now, Eureka Earth has posted an image on Twitter of Woods’ plane landing at Augusta Regional Airport. Predictably, this news sent social media into a frenzy, with many speculating that maybe – just maybe – one of the most incredible comebacks to the sport of all time could be underway. Tweets including flight trackers, video footage of the plane and speculation Woods is on a reconnaissance mission to Augusta National – fresh from a similar visit apparently by Rory McIlroy – abound, as we await further news. Here are a few:

As we await confirmation of why Woods arrived at Augusta, one thing is certain – with such interest, if he announces his involvement in the tournament, it will surely cause a social media rash like we have not. never seen before. For now, it’s all about “watching this space”.
