Tiger Woods Won’t Return to Golf Until He’s Perfectly Healthy
Tiger Woods doesn’t know when he will find his way back onto a golf course, but this much he does know: He will be 100 percent when he does.
Woods spoke to reporters Tuesday while attending the AT&T National, a tournament which benefits his foundation, and said he was tired of playing through injuries.
The world’s former top-ranked golfer hasn’t played since May 12, when he was forced to withdraw from The Players Championship due to an ailing left knee and strained Achilles.
Woods said, “I’m going to learn my lesson from what I did at The Players and apply it this time and come back when I’m 100 percent. I don’t know when that’s going to be.”
Woods says he hasn’t swung a golf club in over a month and has been restricted in practice to strictly putting. Still, Woods says he’s improving and doesn’t expect to be out the rest of the year.
It remains unclear if Woods will return in time for the British Open, which begins July 14 at Royal St. George’s.
