Tiger Woods says he will 'Never' Play Golf Full Time ever again

In an exclusive interview with Golf Digest, Tiger Woods spoke publicly for the first time since his car accident earlier this year regarding his future in golf.

Speaking to interviewer Henni Koyack, Woods said, "I think something that is realistic is playing the tour one day, never full time, ever again, but pick and choose, just like Mr. (Ben) Hogan did. Pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that. You practice around that, and you gear yourself up for that. And you play. I think that's how I'm going to have to play it from now on. It's an unfortunate reality, but it's my reality. And I understand it, and I accept it."

Woods had the interview at his South Florida home, and he was seen walking into the room with what he called a slight "hitch" in his stride, an indication of the serious leg injuries he suffered in a car crash near Los Angeles in February. The 45-year-old golf pro fractured the tibia and fibula in his right leg.

Woods says during his arduous rehabilitation, simple things like listening to birds sing or watching his son play have taken on a greater meaning.

"I have so far to go ... I'm not even at the halfway point. I have so much more muscle development and nerve development that I have to do in my leg. At the same time, as you know, I've had five back operations. So I'm having to deal with that. So as the leg gets stronger, sometimes the back may act up ... It's a tough road.

"I'm just happy to be able to go out there and watch Charlie play, or go in the backyard and have an hour or two by myself with no one talking, no music, no nothing. I just hear the birds chirping. That part I've sorely missed."

Last week, Woods posted a video of him flushing a short iron, which fueled significant hype and speculation on a comeback.

Woods, however, suggested he is nowhere near ready to compete on the PGA Tour.

He told Golf Digest that he will "never" be a full-time player on the PGA tour ever again, but he still hopes to "click off a tournament here or there."

On his first press conference since the car crash, Woods also revealed that he almost lost a leg and that amputation "was on the table."

He said, "I'm lucky to be alive, but also to still have the limb."

Woods will be attending the charity tournament Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas this week. The 20-player tournament benefits Woods' foundation.

As they said, when you name golf, it is impossible not to name Tiger Woods first. One of the best in history in his field.
A shame what happened to him, and with all that he has won, it seems to be the right decision. But also, as he mentions it, it could have been worse. He is alive, he did not lose his leg, and he can enjoy his family.
In addition, he always training to improve. A true professional
 dule-vu01/12/2021 19:54:20 GMT
He is no 1 in history,but its enough now!he have to many scandals!
 ligador3701/12/2021 20:01:49 GMT
The scandal thing is personal. The same can be said of Diego Maradona. When he passed away, his fans took to the streets, as well as his haters and what people don't understand is that one is a fan (or idolized) because of how he played (or in the case of Tiger Woods, because of what he did in golf) . It does not mean that you idolize him in general, that he is a role model, etc. We are only referring to sports. Nothing more.
The rest is the personal life of each one
 dule-vu01/12/2021 20:01:54 GMT
Yes,but because of his life he los lot of sponsors and money ofcourse and on latest he had that car crash!just too much that isnt golf!
 geseco1202/12/2021 01:31:47 GMT
He is a great professional in what he does, but now he is not at 100% to play full time, unfortunately the accident truncated his professional career, but to move forward nomas, as he says is a reality what is happening and wants to return but everything in time.
 CALICUL02/12/2021 01:31:54 GMT
It's sad that Tiger Woods had that accident, but maybe it was his fault...
 geseco1203/12/2021 02:33:35 GMT
that friend already happened, there are always consequences, but we must continue, this player has to get up emotionally to not fall into depression, he is a great player and what he loves most is to play golft, but now he can not do it at 100%, it is very difficult, but at least he will try to play.
 dule-vu03/12/2021 05:51:24 GMT
Yeah,he isnt clear in had,he have problems and best is that he finish with everything!
 geseco1204/12/2021 03:43:38 GMT
It is difficult to recover from this situation that he is living, he wants to play, it is his desire, but his body does not allow it, it is a tremendous pain what he is going through, it would be best to take counseling to live peacefully without worries because it would be more serious for him.
 dule-vu04/12/2021 04:00:36 GMT
Its like with player in any other sport!you need to know when to stop playing!

today I got prize that I can use and it was 4 free spins on mega bars slot!even slot have winning from both sides,its hard to get something from it and I got only 0,10 e on end!ofcourse you cant do much with that and had another spin on same slot,because lowest bet is 0,10 e!we will see what will give tomorrow!

my mistake,sorry!dont have edit option!
 geseco1205/12/2021 04:05:53 GMT
hahahaaj usually happens friend do not worry, but if there is an option to edit it, sometimes it happens when we do it fast, take your time so you do not happen again, luck to all users.
 dule-vu05/12/2021 04:15:59 GMT
Yeah,sometimes it happen!didnt had edit option because I made post already in this thread in less then 24 hours!didnt look where I type!
 geseco1206/12/2021 17:54:03 GMT
I also had the same thing happen to me once, my head was somewhere else when I wrote in the wrong forum, then I realized it because they told me in the forum, it usually happens, greetings to all the forum members.
 CALICUL06/12/2021 17:55:05 GMT
each of the regular members wrote incorrectly at a time. That is not a problem
 Rocio2507/12/2021 22:10:17 GMT
He is an excellent professional now it is unfortunate that he cannot play at full time and he is understood why it is very hard sometimes when certain situations happen to us but that does not mean that he is a good professional we encourage to continue forward in everything
 dule-vu07/12/2021 22:20:44 GMT
he is over with everything!
 dule-vu08/12/2021 22:22:04 GMT
for him best thing would be that he retire from everything,that he dont go in public and that he enjoy in money that he have on account and there is lot of money for sure!he is still in good years,not old years and he can enjoy in things that he love and nobody need to know!just that he stay normal!
 geseco1209/12/2021 03:23:38 GMT
you are very right my friend, better that he retires and can be quiet enjoying his money that he has earned for several years, but I think that when one has money what matters is the competibidad, and that affects this great player.
 dule-vu09/12/2021 05:51:28 GMT
He have money for several lives,so just stay out of public!
 Rocio2509/12/2021 20:44:59 GMT
He is an excellent competitor and it remains his decision whether to continue or not because if the decision not to play full time is his decision and we must respect despite what happened, he continues it is very good.
 dule-vu09/12/2021 20:45:09 GMT
so you found one new thread!thank god Worship ,its xmas miracle!
 antonis32112/12/2021 23:59:20 GMT
Never say Never !!!

I think I ve just said it , lol
 dule-vu13/12/2021 00:00:29 GMT
dont know what happend to her!we will see in next days is this only one day miracle...
 geseco1218/12/2021 21:47:39 GMT
what this player should be thankful for is that life gave him another chance, and that he is alive, even if he can't do what he likes the most, we should always be thankful because we are alive in this world.
 CALICUL18/12/2021 21:47:46 GMT
