Nicklaus on Woods return to Golf…….

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Jack Nicklaus was not exactly shocked to hear that Tiger Woods has picked up his golf clubs and is chipping away the rust from a three-month layoff.

What would astonish the 18-time major championship winner is if Woods fails to show up at the Masters.

“It would surprise me if he didn’t,” Nicklaus said Wednesday. “Oh yeah, I can’t imagine in a hundred years he’s going to miss Augusta.”

Nicklaus, who played in the pro-am at the Honda Classic near his home in West Palm Beach, said golf is in Woods’ DNA and it would be hard to envision him skipping a chance to play in a major. Woods has never missed the Masters since he became eligible to play.

However, that was before his personal life became the stuff of supermarket tabloid fodder. Woods has been seen practicing at his hime course in Orlando, though the world No. 1 has not indicated when he will return to the PGA Tour.

Nicklaus had no real insight on that front. But his gut instinct as a competitor was telling him that Woods would play once before the Masters, then tee it up at the season’s first major in April.

“I don’t know, I’ve been very non-commital about everything because it’s none of my business,” the 70-year-old said. “ As it relates to him playing golf, my guess is as a golfer he’s going to want to try and play Augusta if he has his other things in order.”
