During his first round at The Masters on Thursday, Tiger Woods acknowledged that he was experiencing "constant" pain.

Despite this, the 47-year-old golfer persevered through a turbulent round, ultimately finishing with a score of two-over 74, which was nine shots behind Norwegian player Viktor Hovland, who finished the round tied for the lead with a score of seven-under.

This marked Woods' 25th appearance at Augusta National, where he has won the tournament five times in the past.

Tiger Woods expressed uncertainty on Tuesday about whether this week's appearance at The Masters will be his last.

The golfer, who has won fifteen major championships in his career, has had limited opportunities to compete since he sustained severe leg injuries in a serious car accident last year

His participation at Augusta National this year marks a sporadic return to competitive play.

At the 2022 Masters, Tiger Woods made a dramatic comeback by making the cut, but his physical struggles were evident as he navigated the hilly terrain of Augusta.

This was compounded by the fact that he had undergone surgery that required a rod and pins to be placed in his right leg.
