Tiger Woods had his first news conference since suffering catastrophic leg injuries in a single-vehicle rollover accident in February on Tuesday. This week, Woods is hosting the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.
The 15-time major winner said he doesn’t know when he’ll play again but is grateful for the opportunity.
In the interview this is some of what he said:
“As far as playing at the Tour level, I don’t know when that is going to happen,”. I’ll play a round here and there, a little hit and giggle, I can do something like that. The USGA (United States Golf Association) suggests play forward, I really like that idea now. I don’t like that the tees are on back.”
He went on to say: “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 that.”
