Here’s the latest sign Tiger Woods will attempt to play next week’s Masters at Augusta National. According to the PGA Tour, Woods is listed on the pre-tournament interview schedule.Woods last played on the PGA Tour in the Genesis Invitational in February, withdrawing with flu-like symptoms after having suffered back spasms a day earlier. The 48-year-old, who has been the subject of much speculation regarding this year’s Masters, played at Augusta National last weekend, according to a Sports Illustrated report.On a call with reporters earlier this week, Notah Begay, a commentator for NBC Sports, said Woods’ left ankle “doesn’t move.”Tiger Woods, shown during the PNC Championship at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, withdrew from the Genesis in February.”He’s trying to formulate a strategy and approach that he can work within given the constraints that he’s presented with. And he’s got some constraints,” Begay said on a conference call Wednesday. “He’s got zero mobility in that left ankle and really has low-back challenges now, which he knew he was going to have.”He made his 23rd consecutive cut at Augusta last year but did not finish the tournament because he withdrew with plantar fasciitis.
