Tiger Woods reportedly visits Augusta National before the Masters

Tiger Woods is recovering from back ailments and has said he will not return until his game improves

The clues are starting to add up -- it looks like Tiger Woods is planning to play in the Masters.

News reports have been leaking out about Woods looking impressive on his home course in Florida. Now comes word that he may be practicing at Augusta National.

A plane with a tail number that matched his Gulfstream G5 was spotted at an airport near the course, the Augusta Chronicle reported on Tuesday.

Woods has been on hiatus from the PGA Tour since withdrawing from the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in early February.

The former No. 1 player is recovering from back ailments and has said he will not return until his game improves and he can be competitive.

On Monday, he fell out of the Top 100 in the world rankings for the first time since 1996.

The Masters begins April 9.
