Tiger Woods hopes to return to golf, won’t be full-time

TIGER Woods spoke in-depth about his future in golf for the first time since a single-car accident in February resulted in injuries to his right leg and foot.

Woods said on Monday during an interview with Golf Digest that he is accepting the “unfortunate reality” that he will no longer be a full-time player on the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) Tour.

“I think something that is realistic is playing the Tour one day — never full-time ever again — but pick and choose, just like Mr. (Ben) Hogan did,” Woods said.

“Pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that. “You practice around that, and you gear yourself up for that. I think that’s how I’m going to have to play it from now on. It’s an unfortunate reality, but it’s my reality. And I understand it, and I accept it.”

Woods has not played since the Feb. 23 crash in Southern California, which he said left him wondering if he’d need the leg amputated.

“There was a point in time when — I wouldn’t say it was 50/50, but it was damn near there if I was going to walk out of that hospital with one leg,” Woods said.

The 14-time major champion fought through several injuries during his heyday and needed time to recover from four back surgeries he underwent between 2014 and 2017.

His most recent major title was the 2019 Masters, which marked his first in 11 years. Woods recently posted a video of himself hitting a ball on a driving range with the caption, “Making progress.” — Reuters
