- RELATED What’s in Tiger Woods’ bag?
Will he play again?
In his first media engagement since his car accident in February, Woods told Golf Digest that “getting all the way to the top” is not a realistic expectation and that he will “pick and choose a few events a year and play around that”.
He added: “It’s an unfortunate reality, but it’s my reality. And I understand it, and I accept it.”
So when might Woods return? At a press conference ahead of the Hero World Challenge, the year-end hit and giggle in the Bahamas that he and his foundation have hosted for a number of years, he said: “Internally, I haven’t reached that point. I haven’t proven it to myself that I can do it. I can show up here and I can host an event, I can play a par-three course, I can hit a few shots, I can chip and putt.
“If we’re talking about going out there and playing against the world’s best on the most difficult golf courses under the most difficult conditions, I’m so far from that. I have a long way to go to get to that point.”
Though he does have a certain 150th edition of a tournament in mind.
“I would love to play at St Andrews, no doubt about it,” Woods, who won The Open at the Old Course in 2000 and 2005, explained. “It’s my favourite golf course in the world.
“I’d love to be able to play that Open Championship and hopefully I can.”
And if you’re worried about Woods defecting to a breakaway tour, then worry no more.
“I have decided for myself that I’m supporting the PGA Tour,” he said. “That’s where my legacy is. I have an allegiance to the PGA Tour.”
