Tiger Woods said Monday that it’s still “too soon” to know about his status for the Masters.

Woods said that he has been receiving treatment for his back injury and that the rehabilitation process has been “very frustrating.”

Woods is off to the worst start of his career. After re-aggravating his back injury during a final-round 78 at Doral, he withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational, an event he has won eight times.

Woods has never missed the Masters as a pro.
