Tiger Woods: "I can play but I still have pain"

Tiger Woods, after the exclusive interview with GolfDigest, talking in a a press conference organized on the eve of the Hero World Challenge, an unofficial tournament of the highest American Tour scheduled from 2 to 5 December in the Bahamas.

Tiger revealed his conditions: "I still have pain in my leg and back this rehabilitation on my right leg was certainly one of the most complicated I have faced. So hard even to explain and there is still a long way to go."

Tiger now can play golf. He explained: "I am able to play golf, but I still don't know on what level. For this reason it is still difficult to determine when I will be able to play a tournament on the Pga Tour."

Woods concluded talking about the 50th edition of The Open scheduled for next July in Scotland. He said: "I would really like to play at Saint Andrews, there is no doubt. That is the most beautiful field in the world, I hope to be able to be on the pitch for that occasion."

Considered among the best golfers of all time, as well as the best of the modern era, Woods has won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, in his multi-decade career, making him the most successful player in history.

He held the top position in the world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, including 281 consecutive weeks (from 12 June 2005 to 30 October 2010), and is the only golfer to have won all four major tournaments of the modern era in the 'span of a single year (between 2000 and 2001).

In 2014, he became the first sportsman in the world to have exceeded a billion dollars in earnings from various sponsors. In 2019 Tiger was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States of America.

Wynn Golf Club will host The Match

The challenge between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka is ready to turn into a show: the fifth edition of The Match, which on November 26 in Las Vegas will see the two Americans as protagonists, will be played at the Wynn Golf Course over a distance of 12 holes in an event match play format.

They will do so on a course designed by architect Tom Fazio, reopened in 2019 after a restyling, where the cost of the green fee is equal to $ 550. It is the fifth edition of what has now become a sort of 'golf show in the USA, to be held as part of the Thanksgiving holidays.

Years ago, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson kicked off this show. Now it's up to DeChambeau and Koepka. The Wynn Golf Course was the only golf course on the Las Vegas Strip, built on the site of the former Desert Inn course.

It was designed by Steve Wynn and Tom Fazio, who previously worked together on the Shadow Creek Golf Club, in an exclusive neighborhood in nearby North Las Vegas. It closed in December 2017 to make way for a new development on the land into the resort's proposed $ 1.5 billion Paradise Park. The course was re-opened in October 2019.
