The American, 46, is on the verge of a stunning comeback on Thursday — just 14 months after the car crash that almost cost him his right foot.

Asked if he thinks he can equal Jack Nicklaus’ six Masters, Woods said: “I do. I don’t show up to an event unless I think I can win. So that’s the attitude I’ve had.


“I love competing and I feel like if I can still compete at the highest level, I’m going to. As of right now, I am going to play.


“And if I feel like I can still win, I’m going to play. But if I feel like I can’t, then you won’t see me out here.”


Woods, who is wearing specially made shoes to support his ankles, will play another nine holes on Wednesday before confirming his decision.
