Tiger Woods won't be at the Champions Dinner in Augusta on Tuesday. But in the spirit of the event, the golf legend sent his regards via Twitter.

I’ll miss running up @DJohnsonPGA’s bill at the Champions Dinner tonight. It’s still one of my favorite nights of the year.

Woods is at his home in Florida, where he is recovering from injuries he sustained when he was involved in a single-car crash near Los Angeles on Feb. 23. 

As the rest of the top players on the PGA Tour readied to tee off in Augusta, they shared stories about Woods and honored him with face masks decorated with tigers.

Rory McIlroy told reporters he visited Woods at home at the end of March and that the star was "in decent spirits," per ESPN's Mark Schlabach

Johnson, who won the Masters in 2020, will serve a menu that includes pigs in a blanket, filet mignon and miso-marinated sea bass before dessert courses of peach cobbler and apple pie.
