“The goal is to play just the Major championships and maybe one or two more. That’s it. I mean, that’s - physically that’s all I can do." Woods has had problems with injuries for a long time. However, his love for golf is stronger than anything else.
Woods doesn't want to give up. "I told you that, guys, you know, the beginning of this year, too. I mean, that’s - I don’t have much left in this leg, so gear up for the biggest ones and hopefully, you know, lightning catches in a bottle and I’m up there in contention with a chance to win and hopefully I remember how to do that.
But again, giving myself a chance to get out there again”. - he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com
Tiger Woods and St Andrews
It is still not known if Woods will perform at St Andrews again. Obviously, Woods would like it to happen, but he can't predict anything due to the injury.
“To be honest with you, I don’t know if I’ll be able to make it back one more time as a player in the tournament. You know, maybe I might - I probably will go back and play it at some point with Charlie and have a great time, but I think it’s, what, eight years away, I believe?
That’s a - I don’t know what this leg is going to look like in eight years.
Hopefully it’s still attached, but we’ll see. And I just don’t want to go back and just say farewell, I want to win the damn thing”.
