Golfer Woods completes 72 holes in 10 months after ‘Ankle Surgery’

‘Golf Emperor’ Tiger Woods (48, USA), who returned to the field eight months after ankle surgery, completed 72 holes in four rounds, raising expectations for next season’s performance.

Woods recorded even par 72 with 5 birdies, 3 bogeys, and 1 double bogey in the final 4th round of the PGA Tour event ‘Hero World Challenge’ held at the Albany Golf Course (par 72) in New Providence, Bahamas on the 4th. I hit the bat. Woods, who recorded a final total of even par 288 strokes, finished the tournament in 18th place out of 20 participating players. Scotty Scheffler (USA), who hit 20 under par 268, won the championship.

Considering the value of the name ‘Golf Emperor’, it was not a good result. However, Woods completed 4 rounds and 72 holes 10 months after the PGA Tour’s Genesis Invitational in February, raising expectations for his next season. Woods was on the operating table after withdrawing from the third round of the Masters, a major tournament held in April, due to ankle pain.

The most encouraging thing was the drive shot. Woods made long shots of over 300 yards every day in this tournament. The average driver distance was 304.9 yards, ranking 8th out of 20 players. “The best thing this week was my drive shot,” Woods said. “I could feel the ball speed increasing and the ball hitting the front of the driver’s face,” he said. He also expressed confidence, saying, “I need to refine it a bit more, but I don’t think I’m far from the golf I used to play.”

Woods, who successfully made his comeback, jumped 430 places in the world rankings. Due to his inability to participate in the competition, his ranking dropped to 1328th last week, but rose to 898th in the announcement on the 4th. Woods, who has set a goal of participating in one competition a month next year, also plans to participate with his son Charlie in the PNC Championship, an event competition opening on the 16th.
