Tiger Woods remains unsure if he will be able to play at The Masters next month in Augusta, Ga. Woods, a four-time winner of the storied tournament, is dealing with back trouble and said he does not yet know if he will be able to play in the world's most prestigous invitational.
"Too soon," Woods responded when asked if he knows his playing status for April's Masters. He added that now knowing if he can play is "very frustrating."
Woods said he is working hard to get his back into playing shape. The news came during a press conference to announce a new lead sponsor for Woods' annual tournament held in the Washington, D.C. area. Formerly the AT&T National, the Woods tournament will now be called the Quicken Loans National.
PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem spoke first and officially broke the news about the sponsor change. The event this year will be held at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. Congressional members are in the process of voting to extend the tournament at their club, the results should be in by the end of the month. If Congressional decides not to keep the tournament, Woods mentioned the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va. as a possible replacement. Woods said he prefers his tournament stay in the D.C. area.
