AUGUSTA, GEORGIA | As an addendum to the extraordinary list of achievements in Tiger Woods’ remarkable career, there could be another list, a literal compilation of how his personal pieces have been put back together, Humpty Dumpty-like.
Knees. Legs. Backs.
Now this piece, teeing it up in the Masters on Thursday, 14 months after being pulled from the mangled wreckage of his SUV off the side of a southern California road, the pieces of his ravaged right leg put back together by surgeons, therapists and a braveheart will.
“As of right now, I feel like I am going to play,” Woods said late Tuesday morning, sitting in the Augusta National interview room where every seat was filled, awaiting those words.
