Will Tiger Woods play in the Arnold Palmer Invitational or the Masters?

If anyone other than Tiger Woods knows when he's playing again, they're not saying.

Woods has not yet committed to the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a tournament he's won a record eight times, including back in 2013. He has until 4 p.m. on Friday to decide if he will play, but tournament officials at Bay Hill doubt he'll show.

"Until we hear definitively, the guess is that he's probably not going to come," tournament director Scott Wellington said to WESH-TV in Orlando.

Meanwhile, the Masters is now a mere four weeks from starting. There's still no indication of Woods' intention to play or sit out the year's first major for a second consecutive season.

Woods announced on Feb. 11 that he would not play golf again until his game was "tournament ready." In two 2015 starts, Woods missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open following a career-worst 82 in Round 2 at TPC Scottsdale. He then withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open a week later after 11 holes of the first round, citing back pain.
