The Spanish golf legend Seve Ballesteros says Tiger Woods' decision to return at the Masters is the best thing to have happened to golf for some time.

Woods announced last week that he'll return from a self-imposed exile, following revelations over numerous extra-marital affairs, to play in the first Major of the year.

Ballesteros, a two time winner at Augusta, says Woods can win his fifth green jacket next month and he knows the long course well..

Seve Ballesteros suffered his own personal crisis two years ago when he collapsed at Madrid airport and had surgery on a brain tumour.
