Tiger Woods Admits His Career As A Full-Time Golfer Is Practically Over

It's the news we were all dreading hearing.

Tiger Woods has confirmed that his career as a full-time professional golfer is practically over, as he continues to battle with injuries sustained during a car crash last year.

The golf legend was rushed to hospital after flipping his SUV when he hit a tree at high speed.

At the time, people were fearing for his life, but it was later confirmed that he was in a stable condition, only suffered from fractures to his tibia and fibula.

While he has made the odd cameo appearance here and there, golf fans have been counting down the days for Woods to make a full comeback on the PGA Tour.

But Woods admits he's still struggling to walk since the accident, meaning a biblical second coming is probably out of the picture for good.

"Will I come back and play a full schedule? No. That will never happen again," Woods told reporters ahead of the Genesis Open

"I can play certain events here and there, but on a full-time level, no, that will never happen again."

"I wish I could tell you when I'm playing again.

"I want to know. But I don't. My golf activity has been very limited. I can chip and putt well but I haven't done any long stuff seriously. I'm still working on the walking part.

"Being in a cart, I can do that. But walking a golf course, that's a totally different deal. I've got a long way to go.

"At this age, you just don't heal as fast, which is frustrating.

"To be out here and play six rounds of golf, I'm not able to do that yet. I'm still working on getting to that point."

Woods, widely regarded as the greatest golfer of all-time, hasn't played in a Major tournament since 2020.
