A day after Golf Digest published an exclusive interview with Tiger Woods about his future, the 15-time major champion addressed the media for the first time since his single-car accident in February on Tuesday morning.
Woods spoke to reporters live from his Hero World Challenge event in the Bahamas and began by praising his TGR Foundation, which recently celebrated a 25th birthday, and the field of players who made the trip to the Bahamas. This week’s field is the strongest in Hero’s history and features eight new players.
“This one’s been much more difficult,” said Woods of this recovery compared to that of his countless others. “It’s hard to explain how difficult it’s been to be immobile for 8 months. I was just looking forward to getting outside, that was a goal of mine, especially for a person who’s spent his whole life outside.
“As far as playing at the Tour level, I don’t know when that’s gonna happen,” Woods said about a timeline for when he may play again. “I’ll play a round here and there, a little hit-and-giggle, I can do something like that.”
“To see some of my shots fall out of the sky a lot shorter than they used to is a little eye opening, but at least I’m able to do it again. That’s something that for a while there didn’t look like I was going to. I’m able to participate in the sport of golf, now, to what level? I do not know,” he continued.
“The clock’s ticking, I’m not getting any younger.”
