    Tiger Woods should not miss the Masters at Augusta. Here's why.

    He hasn’t been seen since limping off at the Farmers, and he just bailed on an event he’s won eight times, but it’s still hard to believe Tiger Woods could miss his second consecutive Masters. He hasn't closed the door on playing Augusta, but merely has said he “hope[s] to be ready for the Masters.”

    Regardless of what Hank Haney has to say on the matter, it’s unclear what Woods could care about at this stage – in golf – other than major championships.

    At 39, Woods has only so many more chances to win No. 15 – let alone Nos. 16-18 – so why let another opportunity slip by? What’s the down side? We’ve already seen him butcher TPC Scottsdale and Torrey Pines. Two miserable rounds at Augusta wouldn’t be any kind of shock.

    At this rate, Tiger playing poorly is the status quo. If he’s healthy, Woods has little to lose and everything to gain.
