Woods “confident of winning”

“If I thought I couldn’t win, I wouldn’t have come to the competition.”

Tiger Woods (47, USA), the “golf emperor,” who is returning to the US Professional Golf (PGA) tour after 7 months since the Open in July last year, showed a strong will to win. Woods participated in an official press conference on the 15th, two days before the opening of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars) held at Riviera Country Club (par 71) in Pacific Palisades near Los Angeles, California. Woods, who was initially expected to return through the Masters in April, suddenly participated in the tournament, sparking interest from fans and media.

Entering the conference room, Woods’ gait still looked uncomfortable. He, who is also the host of the tournament, said, “The time will come sooner or later when I can no longer compete for the championship, but it is too early to act as an ambassador for the tournament. It’s not in my DNA.” The event is sponsored by Korea’s Hyundai Motor Company and hosted and operated by the Tiger Woods Foundation. 카지노사이트

He said, “There was a lot of rust, but the rust was removed.” Woods suffered a car accident two years ago right after this tournament that almost cost him his life, and after undergoing treatment and rehabilitation, he made his comeback at the Masters last year. He subsequently withdrew after three rounds at the PGA Championship and missed the cut at The Open.

It is still a question mark whether Woods, who has set the goal of winning the championship, will be able to properly play 72 holes. He has been out of regular tour events for the past seven months due to leg pain and plantar fasciitis. He participated in the PNC Championship, a two-day event competition, last December with his son Charlie, but he couldn’t walk properly, so he rode around in a cart.

Woods explained, “My leg has gotten much better over the past few months,” but “The problem is my ankle, but I will play the game with a close check every round.” He also mentioned that he was inspired by the performance of LeBron James (LA Lakers), who recently set a new record for the most points scored in the NBA (US professional basketball). With 82 wins, Woods tied Sam Snead (USA) for the most wins on the PGA Tour.

Woods will play with his close friends Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Justin Thomas (USA) in the first and second rounds.
