우즈는 골프에서 과거의 사고나 미래에 대해 거의 제안할 수 없습니다.

“여기에 표시할 수 있고 이벤트를 주최할 수 있습니다., 파3 코스를 할 수 있어요, 나는 몇 발을 쏠 수 있다, 나는 칩과 퍼팅을 할 수 있다,” 그는 화요일에 말했다. “But we’re talking about going out there and playing against the world’s best on the most difficult golf courses under the most difficult conditions.

I’m so far from that.

Woods addressed the media for the first time since his Feb. 23 crash on a winding road in the Los Angeles coastal suburbs. Police said he was driving at least 84 mph when he crossed a median and his SUV tumbled down a hill.

Doctors said he shattered tibia and fibula bones in his right leg in multiple locations. Those were stabilized by a rod in the tibia. A combination of screws and pins were used to stabilize additional injuries in the ankle and foot.

Asked his recollection of the accident, Woods said curtly, “All those answers have been answered in the investigation, so you can read about all that there in the police report.When asked if he had any flashbacks to the trauma, he replied: “나는하지 않는다, 아니. Very lucky in that way.

Woods said he felt fortunate to be alive and to still have his right leg — he said the possibility of amputation wason the table— and to be able to walk into the press center at Albany Golf Club without a noticeable limp. From the waist up, with biceps bulging through a black-and-gray shirt, he looked like he did a year ago.

Woods is the host of the Hero World Challenge, which starts Thursday for 20 elite players.

He said he spent three months immobilized — a makeshift hospital bed was set up in his Florida home — before he could start moving around on crutches and eventually walk on his own. Two weeks ago, he posted a 비디오 of his smooth swing with a short iron.

That raised hopes that he was on his way back. 화요일에, he hit the brakes on any notion that a comeback was near. Still to be determined is whether he even wants to go through the work required to compete at a high level.

I have a long way to go to get to that point,” 그는 말했다. “지금, I haven’t decided whether or not I want to get to that point. I’ve got to get my leg to a point where that decision can be made, and we’ll see what happens when I get to that point.

What was clear was that any golf in his future would be limited, and it already was headed in that direction before the car crash. He played only nine times during the pandemic-shortened 2020, ending the year with a fifth surgery on his lower back.

비록 그렇다 하더라도, he could see a scenario of picking and choosing where to play, presumably around the majors, much like Ben Hogan did after his near-fatal car accident in 1949. Woods won the Masters in 2019 after back fusion surgery, and just two years after he could barely walk and feared his career was over.

I got that last major, and I ticked off two more events along the way,” 그는 말했다.

The other two were the Tour Championship in 2018, when he outplayed Rory McIlroy in the final round at East Lake, and the Zozo Championship in Japan in fall 2019 for his 82nd career PGA Tour victory to tie Sam Snead’s record.

Can he win again?

I’ve got to be good enough to do it, 확인? So I’ve got to prove to myself in practice that I’m good enough,” 그는 말했다.

His right leg will never be what it once was. Ditto for his left knee, which has gone through five surgeries, one of them a week after he won the 2008 우리. Open despite having shredded ligaments and a double stress fracture. He said his back won’t be the same either, and it still ached even as he sat at a table for his news conference.

Woods turns 46 12 월. 30.

All that combined means that a full schedule and a full practice schedule and the recovery that it would take to do that, 아니, I don’t have any desire to do that,” 그는 말했다. “But to ramp up for a few events a yearthere’s no reason that I can’t do that and feel ready.

I’ve come off long layoffs and I’ve won or come close to winning before,” 그는 말했다. “So I know the recipe for it. I’ve just got to get to a point where I feel comfortable enough where I can do that again.

Since the accident, Woods gave an interview to Golf Digest (with which he has a financial deal) in May and a video interview with the Discovery-owned outlet that was published Monday. He also was in touch with U.S. players at the Ryder Cup and says the players with whom he’s close have kept in touch. But he hasn’t lost his intense desire for privacy, including what exactly happened when he was speeding along that suburban LA road.

He said friends kept him from what was being said and written about him, and he refused to watch anything on TV except for sports.

I didn’t want to go down that road. I wasn’t mentally ready for that road yet,” 그는 말했다. “A lot of things in my body hurt at that time, and whether I was on medication or not, it still hurt. … I didn’t want to have my mind go there yet. It wasn’t ready.

그 동안에, the Masters is four months away, and to hear Woods speak about the long road ahead, anything but the Masters Club dinner for champions seemed unlikely. Woods said everything was a short-term goal.

This year’s been a year I would like to turn the page on,” 그는 말했다.
