(SB Nation) – Tiger Woods had the golf world on the edge of its collective seat on Friday as he waited until almost the last possible moment to announce he would skip this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational. But he still remained hopeful of starting at Augusta on April 9.

With the Masters on tap in little more than three weeks, it’s difficult to imagine that Woods will deem his game up to snuff by then. In the meantime, despite — and in many ways, because of — Tiger’s tortuous and really remarkable to-play-or-not-to-play indecision remains the underlying question in the game.

The future of the game appeared to be in fine fettle with Spieth and Reed (and 32-year-old 2005 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Sean O’Hair somehow cast as the third wheel) going at each other, with a suddenly fallible Rory McIlroy waiting in the wings.
