Ronnie O'Sullivan has told Tiger Woods to take on The Masters as if he has a 10-inch "you know what" and everyone else has a two-inch "you know what" following his miraculous return to Augusta following his brush with death last year.

Woods, one of the greatest golfers in history with 15 major championship victories, has been offered a motivational speech from snooker's greatest showman and six-time world champion O'Sullivan on the eve of his own return to the Crucible.

Woods delighted golf fans this week by announcing that he would be playing at the 2022 Masters this weekend despite not yet fully recovering from the double broken legs he suffered in a single-vehicle collision in February of last year.

"I think it's about having a bit of a perspective on it from his point of view," O'Sullivan told Eurosport following Woods' positive opening round at Augusta.

"Whereas before he was world No 1, winning five or six tournaments every year, obviously pinpointing the majors, he's probably not going to have that latitude now.

"Destiny has probably taken that out of his own hands, but I think he has probably had time to reflect and sit back and go: 'Do you know what? I don't actually have to win tournaments'.

"Put on that red shirt, get my golf club out and stand on that first tee likes he's got a 10-inch, you know what, while the others have a two-inch, you know what.

"They know what's gone on before and they're still gonna go: 'He's the guv'nor over there, mate'. I mean, even if he's standing on one leg, they just know that they're normal people you know?

"They become normalised when they see him. When he's not about they get a little bit of a step in their walk, they start thinking they're something they're not and then all sudden Tiger turns up.

"They are like: 'Oh, Guv'nor here, chill out, pipe down'. When you are Tiger Woods, you can make people feel like that."
