Tiger Woods prepared for an awkward Masters champions dinner by saying, “Emotionally, there’s a lot there.”
Tiger Woods expects the Masters champions dinner to be awkward and emotional.
The five-time Augusta champion, who hasn’t competed since The Open in July of last year, is finally back this week.
However, the golfing legend is already preparing for what could be a tasty reunion in April.
When that happens, the Masters legend will eat dinner with other Augusta winners, including LIV rebels.
The Genesis Invitational begins on Thursday, and Woods, 47, is attempting to concentrate on it.
He is aware that the Masters, which will take place in two months, will be a huge event both on and off the course.
The dinner, which will be “hosted” by 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler, will feature six prominent LIV players.
A challenging reception is anticipated for Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson, Charl Schwartzel, and Sergio Garcia.
Along with Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland, Woods has been one of the most vocal opponents of the Saudi-sponsored LIV breakaway circuit.
The Californian charged that the rebels had “disregarded,” “disrespected,” and “exhibited animosity” toward the PGA Tour.

Making surе Scottiе is propеrly honorеd whilе also undеrstanding thе naturе of what has happеnеd and thе pеoplе who havе lеft, as wеll as whеrе our situations stand lеgally and еmotionally, involvеs a lot.
