Even in a traffic accident, Woods, who returned, “No public relations ambassador, came out to win”
Even though he couldn’t completely shake off the shock of the car accident, even at the age of 1,000, Tiger Woods (48, USA), the ‘Emperor of Golf’, did not lose his desire to win.
According to U.S. Golf Digest, Woods held an official press conference two days before the opening of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational on the 15th (Korean time), and said, “My goal is to win the tournament.”
He returns to the PGA Tour after 7 months since The Open in July of last year. It was said that he was in the process of retiring due to poor performance due to the aftereffects of a traffic accident, but Woods again showed his will to extend his active career.
Standing shoulder to shoulder with Sam Snead (USA) with 82 victories on the PGA Tour, he is trying to win one that will change golf history, but a great ordeal holds him back.
In a 2021 car overturn accident, he seriously injured his leg and had to go through a long rehabilitation. Everyone waited for his comeback, but the result was not satisfactory, as he impressed golf fans with just a video of him practicing a shot with impossibly slimmer legs.

In December of last year, at the PNC Championship, an event competition held with his son Charlie, he honestly confessed about his uncomfortable legs while riding a cart and playing. That there is not enough strength in the legs.
Woods, who returned after 7 months, did not hide his desire to win, just like in his prime. According to Golf Digest, Woods said, “If I play, I will play to win.” “I came to the competition to win,” he said.
Although he still has discomfort in his legs, Woods said, “My legs are in better shape than last year. It’s hard every day, but it’s getting stronger and better. It’s gotten a lot better over the past few months.”
He was motivated by a man called ‘King’ in another sport. The protagonist is LeBron James (39, LA Lakers) of the NBA, who recently broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time record for most points (38,367 points). “I grew up watching Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but I never thought that James would surpass Abdul-Jabbar’s record at the Lakers,” said Woods. I thought about many things while watching.”
Regarding the situation where he had to face young and energetic competitors, Woods said, “My hero, Arnold Palmer, has played in the Masters for 50 years in a row. ’50 years in a row’.
