Tiger Woods drops new retirement hint at the Masters as golf icon ‘lucky’ just to have leg

Woods was particularly reserved when he spoke to the assembled media on Tuesday. Rather than giving his traditional pre-tournament prediction, the American instead affirmed that teeing up “a small victory in itself” following his single-car rollover crash in February 2021 and he admitted he is ‘lucky’ to still have a leg.

The 47-year-old has had an extremely inactive 2022-2023 season playing in only one major tournament, the Genesis Invitational, in which he placed T45. When asked if this could be his last Masters, he said: “Yes. Last year I didn’t know if I was going to play again at that time. I didn’t win the tournament, but for me to be able to come back and play was a small victory in itself.

“I still would have liked to have gotten the W, but I didn’t, but I think I got my own smaller version of that, to be able to come back and just be able to play. I don’t know how many more I have in me. So just to be able to appreciate the time that I have here and cherish the memories.”

“I’ve been able to recreate a lot of the chip shots at home in my backyard,” he added. “I’ve gone through so many different scenarios in my head.

“You know I don’t sleep very well, so going through it and rummaging through the data bank and how to hit shots from each and every place and rehearsing it; that’s the only way that I can compete here. And hopefully, it will help me this week.”
