Tiger unsure of Masters

WASHINGTON - World number one Tiger Woods says he remains uncertain if he will be able to play in the Masters despite two weeks of rest and treatment for back spasms.

Woods, a 14-time major champion chasing the all-time record 18 majors won by Jack Nicklaus, withdrew from last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, where he has won eight times including last year, due to nagging back pain.

A year after he won five tournaments and appeared set for a solid run in the majors in 2014, his status for the Masters on April 10-13 remains in doubt even with a potential four weeks of rest for his aching back.

"For Augusta, it's actually still a little too soon," Woods said. "That's the frustrating thing about this.

"I've had a couple of weeks off and getting treatment and working on trying to get it ready for Augusta.

"As of right now, still too soon, which is very frustrating."

The 38-year-old American struggled to a 78 in the final round of the World Golf Championships event at Doral earlier this month.
