Tiger Woods' playing days are almost done. But his influence on the game will clearly continue long after he's holed his last putt.
Woods spoke Tuesday morning in advance of the Hero World Challenge, his own tiny-field tournament in the Bahamas, and as has become the norm at this event, he was unusually open and forthright, both about his own game and the state of the sport in general.
Woods has never fully recovered from the injuries suffered in a catastrophic one-car accident in February 2021. Combine that with the litany of surgeries he's had over the last decade-plus as his once-indomitable body began to break down, and he's at the point now where he's planning to play the bare minimum.
"The goal is to play just the major championships and maybe one or two more. That's it," he said. "I mean, that's physically, that's all I can do."
Woods played in three majors this past season, finishing 47th at the Masters, withdrawing from the PGA Championship and missing the cut at St. Andrews in the Open Championship. If there's a positive in announcing such a reduced schedule, Woods allowed, it's that last season went better than he'd anticipated.
