Tiger Woods is being pretty active on Twitter today. For Tiger Woods, that is. First, he sent out a tweet announcing that he will be playing in The Players Championship. A few hours later, he tweeted the above photo of him and Yao Ming.

Woods won the event two years ago and missed competing in it last year following his back surgery a few months prior. This time, he’s hoping for a repeat of 2013.

While Tiger Woods has been playing his cards close to his chest as to when he’ll make his next start after finishing T17 at the Masters, one place he’ll apparently be playing is the Memorial Tournament, which Jack Nicklaus hosts at the end of May

Nicklaus, who spoke Wednesday during a fundraising event at Ohio State, said that he and Woods had a “long, long talk” at Augusta National, where they discussed various topics.

Great work by Bloomberg’s Mike Buteau and Janet Paskin on putting together a list of 111 members of Augusta National Golf Club. As the sub-headline of the story reads, “Membership in the world’s most exclusive golf club remains one of the most sought after affirmations of corporate success.”

Augusta National goes to great lengths to conceal the identity of its membership, which consists of approximately 300 people, who are some of the most affluent and powerful businessmen — and women since 2012 — in the world.

Letterman quipped, “At one point, you were 19-under, is that even legal?” Jordan cracked back, “I think you have to be 21…”

In his Masters debut, Jordan Spieth entered the final round tied for the lead with Bubba Watson, but the then-20-year-old Texan wasn’t able to close out and let his first green jacket slip through his fingers. Just a year later, Spieth, who held a four-shot lead heading into Sunday, got his redemption and closed the deal at Augusta National, completing a wire-to-wire victory — the first since Raymond Floyd in 1976 — to capture his first green jacket as well as his first major championship. And, it was one for the ages as Spieth tied, set and broke various records.

Before Tiger Woods teed off on Sunday, a colleague asked me to predict the 14-time major champion’s final-round score. I said, with much optimism, “66.” Unfortunately for Woods, I correctly called what Rory McIlroy shot — the other guy wearing Nike that played alongside Tiger on Sunday at the Masters.

Woods, who has won four green jackets, posted a lackluster one-over 73 to finish at five-under for the championship, dropping him down the leaderboard 12 spots from T5 to T17.
