Tiger Woods before PGA: I don't know how much range of motion I'll ever get back

Tiger Woods seems ready for the PGA tour and expects the most from himself: "There was a huge lull, Monday [smiling] that was it," Tiger Woods said on his post-Masters rehabilitation for skysports. "That was it.

Monday, it was not fun. It hurt. Ice baths and just trying to get the swelling out of there. Then we went back at it, leg day on Tuesday and we kept going from there. "Figured the first mountain you climbed was Everest. That's the steepest golf course you're going to play and that was the first one you climbed.

It's going to get flatter and better. But still, I still have tough days, and things aren't going to be as easy as people might think. "I feel like I'm doing better. I'm having more days which are better, more positive.

Able to practice a little bit longer. I'm able to do activities and things that I was hoping to do, and I'm finally able to do them."

Tiger Woods on his readiness

It is clear that he is not at his maximum, but he will try to do everything to reach his goal.

Woods is aware that it will not be easy. "There's a lot of hardware in there and there's going to be limitations to what I'm going to be able to do, but I'm going to get stronger," Woods added. "I don't know how much that is or how much range of motion I'll ever get back, but sure is a hell of a lot better than it was 12 months ago.

"I didn't have the endurance [at The Masters] that I wanted. I shouldn't expect it because I didn't earn it. I didn't go out there and I hadn't done the work, but we were able to put in a little bit more work and it's going to get better as time goes on. As the months pass, it's going to get better."
