(PatrioticPost.com)- In an interview last week, golfer Tiger Woods admitted that he wouldn’t be competing much longer.
Woods told Yahoo Sports last Tuesday that he is only able to do a few tournaments a year, explaining that it was all he could physically handle.
Woods has never fully recovered from his February 2021 car crash that nearly cost him a leg. Between that accident and the other surgeries he’s undergone over the last decade, Woods has reached the point where he is only doing the bare minimum.
He told Yahoo Sports that while he still likes competing and can still hit a golf ball, “I just can’t walk.”
This past season, Woods only played in three majors, finishing in 47th place at the Masters, withdrawing from the PGA Championship, and failing to make the cut at the British Open at St. Andrews.
But even that was more than Woods had expected. He told Yahoo Sports that all he had hoped to do was the British Open, “But I was able to get two more in there, so that was a big positive,” he said.
Woods withdrew from last weekend’s Hero World Challenge due to plantar fasciitis. He hopes to play in the upcoming installment of The Match and the PNC Classic.
When asked about the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Tour, Woods said the PGA Tour can’t co-exist with LIV so long as Greg Norman remains in its leadership given Norman’s “animosity” toward the PGA Tour.
Both the PGA Tour and the LIV Golf tour claim that they are the proper vehicle for the sport moving forward. But Woods believes the animosity between the two tours is preventing that.
He said that animosity is not the best way “for our game to grow.” He said the two tours have to come together, but when there is “so much animosity” from one side, that is impossible.
