IT’S GOOD TO BE BACK ONCE AGAIN – TIGER WOODS

Tiger Woods is apparently still pleased with his return to competitive action, which saw him feature at the Hero World Challenge, even despite his inconsistent play on Sunday.


However, he is yet to decide on a specific tournament to continue his comeback.

Woods had been off the game for a 16 month period following series of necessary back surgeries he had to undergo. Nat the Albany Golf Club in Bahamas, he struggled to a four-over par 76, thus finishing at 15th with 18 players on the field.

Woods finished 72 holes on four-under 284, making a total of five birdies, three bogeys and three double bogeys, to see 14 shots behind the winner, Hideki Matsuyama, Japanese star.

“Big picture, it feels good to be back out here playing again, competing and trying to beat the best players in the world,” Woods said.

“I missed it. I love it. I’m just so thankful to be back here playing again.”

Woods will turn 41 later this month and was the oldest player on the field but made the most birdies for the week at 24. The final round, however saw him make the worst 18 holes that was shot by anyone in the tournament.

“This week was pretty cool because I made some birdies this week, I felt like I did really well in that regard, but I also made just some really silly mistakes. I played the par-4s quite frankly awful.”

Woods however noted that the feeling of playing on a golf course was sort of new to him once again and it was kind of tough to do all that.

He also talked about next year, where he said he wouldn’t mind playing a full schedule after he was asked about his plans for 2017.
