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.

Tiger Woods announced on Friday via Twitter that he will make his next start at The Players Championship, the PGA Tour’s flagship event, which is held May 7-10 at TPC Sawgrass.

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.

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.

Another day, another scoring record set by Jordan Spieth. The 21-year-old Texan fired a two-under 70 to post a total of 16-under, 200, for the lowest 54-hole score in Masters history, breaking the previous record held by none other than Tiger Woods in 1997 and Raymond Floyd in 1976.

Halt the obituaries and farewell tour columns — Tiger Woods showed on Friday at the Masters that he’s not “done.” In fact, he can still play golf pretty well. Woods, who posted a one-over 73 in the first round, shot a three-under 69 for his first sub-70 score at Augusta National since 2011.

Coming into the season’s first major at Augusta National, Jordan Spieth was the hottest player with two runner-up finishes and a win in his last three starts on the PGA Tour. He kept his strong form going in the opening round of the Masters, firing an impressive eight-under 64 to take a three-shot lead over Charley Hoffman, Justin Rose, Ernie Els and Jason Day.

Tiger Woods and his Olympic skier girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, along with his adorable children Sam and Charlie, who were in his caddies in the Masters Par-3 Contest, stole the spotlight for most of the festivities on Wednesday afternoon. It was the first time Woods decided to be a regular human being like his fellow competitors and play in the fun and lighthearted event since 2004.

While all eyes were on Woods and his family, Jack Nicklaus took center stage when he aced the 123-yard fourth hole, with his shot landing past the pin and spinning back into the cup. At 75 years young, Nicklaus showed he’s still got game. Interesting enough, it was Nicklaus’ first hole-in-one at Augusta National — on either course — in 56 years of playing here.
