Before his withdrawal from the Dubai Desert Classic last week in Dubai, Tiger Woods sat down with former R&A CEO Peter Dawson to discuss his rehab, his injury history and his future.
“It was more than brutal,” said Woods of his 17 months between PGA Tour events. “There were times where I physically didn’t know if I could get out of bed. There were times when I needed help just to get out of bed. Two of the most important people in my life kept my spirits up every day, my kids.”
“There were plenty of times when I never thought I would play the game at an elite level. Playing once every three or four weeks, that’s not going to cut it. There were a lot of times when I thought I wasn’t going to make it back.”
