In an interview with Golf Digest's Henni Koyack, Tiger Woods talked about many topics, and one of them was the accident he had. After being in a bed for a long time, he had a great desire to go outside and feel the grass.
“Sometimes I’d just crutch and lay on the grass for an hour because I want to be outside,” Woods told Golf Digest‘s Henni Koyack, as quoted by vancouversun.
“It’s hard to explain how difficult it has been just to be immobile for the three months, just lay there and I was just looking forward to getting outside,” Woods said.
“That was a goal of mine. Especially for a person who has lived his entire life outside, that was the goal”.
Tiger Woods and return
Tiger Woods gave an interesting comparison. “After my back fusion, I had to climb Mount Everest one more time,” he said.
“I had to do it, and I did. This time around, I don’t think I’ll have the body to climb Mount Everest and that’s OK”. Tiger Woods is ready to return, but apparently he will only play a few tournaments.
His body is currently not fully recovered, and the question is whether it will be. “To ramp up for a few events a year as I alluded to yesterday as Mr. Hogan did, he did a pretty good job of it, and there’s no reason that I can’t do that and feel ready,” he said.
A few weeks ago he talked about the Open Championship at St Andrews and playing, and today it was officially confirmed that he will be part of this tournament. It's a really great moment for him. “I would love to be able to play that Open Championship, there’s no doubt about it,” he said. “Physically, hopefully I can. I’ve got to get there first”.
