Tiger Woods Eyes Playing Three Majors In Next Three Months

Tiger Woods plans to play one tournament each month for the rest of the year, despite his physical limitations as a result of a 2021 car accident.

“I have the next three months — three majors — and hopefully that works out,” Woods said in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday.

The 15-time major champion drew large crowds to the Masters last month, but his 16-over par total was the highest 72-hole score of his career, placing him last of the 60 golfers who made the cut at Augusta National.

Nonetheless, Woods stated that he was excited to play the PGA Championship at Valhalla on May 16, the US Open at Pinehurst in June, and the British Open at Royal Troon in Scotland in July.

If Woods succeeds, it will be the first time since 2019 that he has competed in all four major championships.

To do so again will require detailed attention to his physical recovery.

“Cold plunge every day,” Woods said of the treatment for his sore body after the Masters.

To contend, Woods will likely have to reckon with world number one Scottie Scheffler, who followed up his second Masters title with his fourth victory of the season at the RBC Heritage a week later.

“If you just stand back and watch ball flight, there’s something different about his,” Woods said of Scheffler.

“It’s just a matter of if he putts decent, he’s going to win. If he putts great, he blows away fields.

“If he has a bad putting week, he contends,” Woods said. “He’s just that good a ball-striker.”
