In February, we reported that Tiger Woods would be taking some time off the golf course to work on his game. The golf legend last played on Feb. 5 when tightness in his lower back caused him to exit the course only after playing 11 holes.

Now, it looks like the hiatus is over. The 39-year-old has announced he will play next week in the 2015 Masters Tournament! Woods said on his website:

"I'm playing in the Masters. It's obviously very important to me, and I want to be there. I've worked a lot on my game, and I'm looking forward to competing. I'm excited to get to Augusta, and I appreciate everyone's support."

The four-time Masters champion worked on his game on Tuesday at Augusta National, playing an 18-hole practice round.

Woods ended up skipping the Masters last year due to a back surgery to fix a pinched nerve. After a short return, he sat out the final four months of the season when his back pain resurfaced.

The golfer's world ranking has dropped to No. 104, which is his lowest rank since 1996, just a week prior to his first professional victory.

Will this time off before the tourney enhance the champion's game play? We'll find out when the Masters commences on April 9!
