World Golf Hall of Famer Speaks On His Future In Golf
In an interview with Golf Digest published on Monday, Woods said he finds it realistic to play the tour one day, although “never full time, ever again—but pick and choose” just like Ben Hogan did.
The golfer noted he would instead choose a few events yearly and play around them. He finds the situation an unfortunate reality but one he accepts.
The father-of-two admitted to lowering his expectations as he no longer needs to compete with the best golf players in the world to have a great life.
After a car accident on February 23, Woods suffered comminuted open fractures to his right leg’s fibula and tibia. He began rehabilitating on bed rest, followed by a wheelchair and crutches.
Woods credited his 12-year-old son Charlie for motivating him through the process, adding that he would watch him play at tournaments and be impressed.
The 45-year-old said his son is doing great in the golf world but has a temper problem. He advised his son to remain 100% committed to the next shot he takes.
Woods expressed his gratitude for the influx of love and support, even from the White House, and said that the cost of doing business for sportsmen and sportswomen are injuries.

PGA Tour player Rickie Fowler revealed that his co-player prioritized rehabilitation from his injury each day and put in the work towards full recovery.

Woods is as famous for being a great golf legend as he is notorious for being associated with many scandals.
Per The Blast, former mistress Rachel Uchitel told the New York Times that the athlete’s lawyers were on her neck about violating an NDA she signed during their affair.
The 46-year-old exposed how much Woods paid her to keep quiet and for other favors, but the golfer now requested about 8 million dollars for failing to maintain their contract terms.
Uchitel explained that she signed the 30-page NDA agreement without adequately reading through the fact that she was forbidden from directly or indirectly discussing Woods’ life with anyone.
