Woods misses Masters 20 years after ‘Slam’

(Agence France-Presse) - April 4, 2021 - 12:00am

Augusta – Severe leg injuries in a February car crash ensured Tiger Woods won’t be playing in this year’s Masters on the 20th anniversary of his “Tiger Slam” victory at Augusta National.

But the 45-year-old superstar, whose 15 major titles include five Masters green jackets, will have his legacy felt across the famed layout.

Woods is recovering at home in Florida after suffering serious injuries when his car flew off the road and flipped several times during the Southern California accident.

Hours of surgery were required to repair his shattered lower right leg and ankle, including a rod inserted into his tibia and the use of screws and pins to stabilize the joint.
