Tiger Woods fist pumps, beats Michael Strahan in putting contest

The 14-time major victor, who has not played since pulling out of the Dubai Desert Classic in February with back pain, is a significant doubt for next month's tournament.

Appearing on "Good Morning America" ahead of a book signing for his new book, co-written with Lorne Rubenstein, about his 1997 Masters win, Woods was asked if he would be competing at Augusta National in search of a fifth green jacket win.

The whirlwind 2017 season for Tiger Woods took him to NY on Monday for an appearance on Good Morning America, where he briefly touched on his desire to play in the Masters in two weeks. "I'm trying. I'm trying everything just to be able and get back and play". I love that event, it's meant so much to me in my life.

However, his agent has now dismissed those claims, insisting that the Florida resident is still working hard to be fit for the first major of the year.

No Arsenal approach for Borussia Dortmund's Thomas Tuchel
However, conflicting reports indicate that Wenger could still stay on at the Emirates Stadium for another season making their so-called interest in Tuchel somewhat futile.

"I need to get back physically", he added. "He's got other things in his life that he's interested in and it's not as if it's just golf".

"I talked to Tiger four hours ago on the phone", said Steinberg. "That's the hard part is getting the prep time in".

Tiger Woods will attend the Champions Dinner the Tuesday night of Masters week. Woods pulled out after the first round and the next three tournaments because of ongoing back problems. "There's not been a decision one way or another - I couldn't give you a fair assessment, but to say it's doubtful is an absolutely inaccurate statement". Woods's abbreviated appearance in Dubai was his second official event since returning from a 15-month layoff, during which he recovered from multiple back surgeries.

In his first start on the PGA Tour since he tied for 10th in the 2015 Wyndham Championship, Woods shot 76-72 and missed the cut in the Farmers Insurance Open the last week of January.
