Golf’s troubled former World number one Tiger Woods says he is not sure when – or if ever – he can return to golf following two back surgeries in a span of 18 months.
The American 14 time major winner was addressing the media at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas as the tournament host and not one of the players.
Woods, the world No. 400, his lowest as a professional, said: “There is not a timetable for this and that’s been the hardest mindset adjustment – I just don’t know. So where is the light at the end of the tunnel? I just don’t know. So that’s been hard, but also I’ve got to reset the clock each and every day and say ‘ok here we go, this is a new day, just take it for what it is.’ I listen to my surgeon, I listen to my physios and we just take it day by day.”
The 39-year old had two operations to alleviate pain from a pinched nerve this year.
He missed the cut at three of this years four majors, while his last victory came in Aug 2013 at the Bridgestone Invitational.
