It’s still a little bit of a mystery as to when Tiger Woods will have the ability to get back to work on the course, but he did tell reporters Tuesday that his right ankle was pain-free.
Nonetheless, it’s the remainder of the leg that also needs to return along.
“My ankle is advantageous. Where they fused my ankle, I even have absolutely zero issue in anyway,” Woods said, in response to The Associated Press. “That pain is totally gone. It’s the opposite areas which were compensated for.
“But all the encompassing areas is where I had all my problems, and I still do. So that you fix one, others need to grow to be more hypermobile to get around it, and it might result in some issues.”
Woods had fusion surgery on his right ankle back in April, which forged doubt on the star golfer appearing in any further majors for the remainder of 2023.
Woods caddied for his son, Charlie, over the weekend on the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship, and photographs posted by the tournament’s X account showed Woods walking and carrying his son’s golf bag.
“I’m pretty sore after caddying for 4 days,” Woods said. “It was a flat course, thank God.”
Woods hasn’t played since he withdrew from the Masters in April and underwent surgery two weeks later for arthritis that stemmed from a automotive crash outside Los Angeles two years ago.
Woods is ready to host the Hero World Challenge within the Bahamas per week after Thanksgiving, however the golfer isn’t expected to take part in it.
For the reason that event is sanctioned by the PGA Tour, it will mean 72 holes price of walking.
What’s more prone to occur is Woods playing within the PNC Championship, which is a PGA Tour Champions-sanctioned event and allows carts.
Woods has participated within the event the past two years with Charlie, including 10 months after the automotive crash.
On Tuesday, Woods was announced as a part of the ownership group of the sixth and final team, the Jupiter Links Golf Club, within the TGL, which he developed with Rory McIlroy.
Woods can also be set to compete for the team.
