Tiger Woods warms up during a practice round prior to the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club on Tuesday in Augusta, Ga.

After weeks of speculation, it seems that Tiger Woods will play in the 86th Masters Tournament this Thursday — less than 14 months after a serious single-car accident.

"As of right now I feel like I am going to play," the golf icon said at a news conference Tuesday.

Fans first noticed that Woods' name was included on the Masters players list. Then there was a tracked flight from Florida. And Monday large crowds gathered to watch the five-time champion practice at Augusta. All begging the question, would he play?

As of Tuesday, it appears the answer is "yes."
