He shook his head Tuesday when asked if would play in the season's first major April 5-8 at August National.

But Koepka conceded he will not be fit enough to contend at Augusta, where he finished in a tie for 11th previous year, and he does not want to risk causing further damage which could lead to another lengthy absence.

Koepka is also absent from this week's Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin, Texas.

Three-time Masters victor Phil Mickelson broke a winless drought of nearly five years when he claimed the WGC-Mexico Championship earlier in March.

"And with the form that he's shown lately, I didn't expect anything less, to be honest".

Woods is 35th in the FedExCup points list with 450, after earning 105 for his finish at Bay Hill, and the long-time world number one has risen to 105th in the rankings.

And while the 42-year-old undeniably has plenty of pedigree, Thomas knows his fellow American remains fallible to the doubts that affect every member of the field across four demanding days in the spring spotlight in Georgia.

USA Today quoted Koepka as saying: "They said I would be about 80 per cent, but I can't play 80 per cent".

"If anything, it may just add a little bit more pressure because more eyes and more spotlight is on you".
