The PGA Tour Golf Schedule for 2014 is getting close to the Masters and that could be the next tournament for Tiger Woods despite his recent back injury and the major at Augusta National is still up in the air for the number one ranked golfer in the world and as it gets closer to the April date he will decide whether he is healthy enough to play.

Woods first had the back injury crop up at the end of the Honda Classic and he was forced to pull out of that and now he could be off his game until the Masters and that comes after the Shell Houston Open and that starts up on April 3. Woods was forced to drop out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and that is a tournament that he previously won last year and was one of three that he won ahead of the Masters last year.

Woods won five times on tour last season and this year he has been off to a very rough start, flaming out at the Farmers Insurance Open, another tournament he won last year and also at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, which he also won last season. Woods has not been sharp apart from a few rounds on tour and that has been due to the back injury and now Woods is hoping to be healed up in time to play the Masters, as he has not won a major in years. Last season he was looking like he would be in contention before his unfortunate strike on the flag that went into the water and that led to a drop shot controversy that was called in by a viewer.

The Masters begins on April 10 and Woods is now off to his worst start of the season heading into the major in 18 years on Tour and he is hoping to turn things around once he gets his back in order. Woods got some extra rest after sitting out of the Palmer tournament and now he is trying to get back into things for the Masters, which he has never missed in his career. Woods last won is back in 2005 and he has won 14 majors and he has not won a major in multiple years and this could be another chance for him.
