and said he plans to return. However, Woods will no longer be on the PGA Tour full-time.
“I think there’s something realistic about doing a one-day tour — never full-time again — but pick and choose, like Mr. [Ben] Hogan did. Pick and choose a few events each year and you play around,” Woods told Golf Digest in a Zoom interview. “You practice around that, and you prepare yourself for that. I think that’s how I’m going to have to play it from now on. It’s an unfortunate fact, but it’s my reality. And I understand that, and I accept it.”
Woods suffered a serious injury to his right leg. While in the hospital, there are talk about amputated leg. “This one is much harder,” Woods said during the Hero World Challenge press conference. “Knees are one thing. It’s a level. Then back. With this right leg. … It’s hard to explain how difficult it is. Immobilized for three months. Just to lie there. I just looking forward to getting out. That’s one of my goals. Especially for someone who spends his life outside, it’s a goal.”
