Tiger Woods' return to Augusta National attracted massive attention from golf fans, who enthusiastically awaited the comeback of this brilliant golfer. However, his performance didn't go as well as expected, as Woods finished last at the Masters. His ambition was to make the cut for the 24th consecutive time. That was his priority, and he succeeded. Nevertheless, the final round was disappointing for him.

His total score of +16 over 72 holes was the highest he's ever recorded in his career. This notable statistic highlights an unusual performance for him in this tournament, indicating that he faced huge challenges on the course despite his extensive experience in the game.

Tiger Woods spoke to the media about his impressions after his performance at the Masters. Considering he hasn't played a full tournament in a long time, he's happy with the great fight he put up on Wednesday and Friday. Things didn't go ideally for him, but Woods does not doubt that things will look brighter in the future. The priority for this golfer is to recover and be fully prepared, of course, if that's possible. Such performances are not what we're used to seeing from him.

'It was a good week all around. I think that coming in here, not having played a full tournament in a very long time, it was a good fight on Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately, it didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to.'- Woods said, as quoted by Daily Mail!

One of the topics of discussion was the chaotic state of the golf scene and the future of the sport. Woods calmed the passions of fans who are dissatisfied with the current situation. While he couldn't confirm whether an agreement would be reached in the near future, Woods has sparked optimism among fans of this sport.

Although negotiations have dragged on, with decreasing optimism among fans that an agreement will be reached, Woods calls for patience and believes that the process is heading in the right direction.

Woods was seen playing a round with LIV governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan, further fueling rumors that the PGA Tour and LIV could reach a final agreement. Woods is a golfer whose reputation speaks for itself. The successes in his career are sufficient evidence of how important he can be in such negotiations.

'I don't know if we're closer, but certainly we're headed in the right direction.'- Woods said.

A few weeks ago, a meeting took place between player directors and PIF leaders. Woods was also part of the meeting, emphasizing that many positive things happened during the discussion. Both sides are pleased with this meeting, aware that such conversations could indeed change the future of golf. The goal is for the future of golf to change, but in a positive way. Although the influx of money into the golf scene could have initially meant positive outcomes, it seems that LIV has brought conflicts and chaos.

'That was a very positive meeting, and I think both sides came away from the meeting feeling positive'.- Woods continued!

The great golfer has no intention of retiring in the near future. Although there is fear that Woods may never fully recover or be the same as before, he doesn't want to end his career, likely prepared to fight for the top spot in the golf scene. Maintaining dominance in the golf world for so long is one of the reasons why Woods doesn't want to give up. The question is whether we'll have the chance to see the old Woods in the future, but there is hope and optimism that this 48-year-old golfer can remind us of his best days.

PGA Tour Commissioner, Jay Monahan, sent a message to the players ahead of the meeting with PIF leaders, urging them to express their demands and share their opinions regarding this partnership. Each golfer's goal was to learn more about the LIV Golf project and the intentions of the Tour's leaders. When PIF and LIV arrived on the golf scene, it was difficult to understand their true intentions.

Many other aspects also interested them, and this meeting was an opportunity to find out more. Based on the information provided, PGA Tour players seem to be satisfied with what they heard. This meeting, judging by the statements of some of the golfers, did not involve any negotiations but rather an understanding of LIV Golf's intentions and what they aim to change in the world of golf. Players are aware of the financial power of LIV Golf and PIF, and therefore they know very well what PIF can do in the world of golf.
