‘Golf Emperor’ Tiger Woods (48, USA), who participated in an official tournament after 7 months, expressed his desire to play in all 4 major tournaments this year.
In the final round of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational (total prize money of $20 million) held at the Riviera Country Club (par 71, 7322 yards) in Pacific Palisades, California on the 20th (Korean time), Woods made three birdies and I tied 5 bogeys and wrote a 2 over par 73 strokes.메이저사이트
Woods, who recorded a final total of 1 under par 283, tied for 45th with Kim Joo-hyung (21, Nike Golf) and others.
Woods, who had been in a major car accident two years ago and devoted 2021 only to rehabilitation, returned to the field last year but only participated in some competitions. This tournament drew a lot of attention as it was the first official tournament in 7 months since the Open in July last year. Wherever Woods walked, cloud spectators flocked to form a long line.
Woods, who improved his ranking to 26th by reducing 4 strokes including 1 eagle with a play comparable to his prime in the 3rd round the previous day, lost the number of strokes and slipped to 45th.
Still, for Woods, it was meaningful to finish the fourth round after a long time. It is the first time in 10 months since the Masters in April last year that Woods completed 72 holes in the fourth round.
After the game, Woods said, “(Completing) was definitely difficult.” “I’m focused on playing at the level I’m at right now.”
When asked about his future plans, Woods answered rather cautiously.
He said, “As I said last year, (considering my physical condition), I will go to about two more tournaments besides the majors.” I hope to be able to play in all four majors this year.”
