Tiger Woods Interview: Tiger Woods is done. Fans of the iconic golfer can refuse to swallow the bitter pill, but the man himself has embraced that the end is here.
Woods’ state-of-mind is the giveaway. During a 30-minute press conference on Tuesday, the 39-year-old said he had “nothing to look forward to” in his recovery from back surgery.
Woods hasn’t swung a golf club since his operations in September and October. When asked about his potential return, he said, “I’ve no answer. Neither does my surgeon or physio. There’s no timetable.
“There’s nothing I can look forward to, nothing I can build towards. Where’s the light at the end of the tunnel? I don’t know,” added the 14-time major winner.
Woods, who hasn’t won a major since the 2008 US Open, was once considered a lock to surpass Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 titles. It has been seven years and Wood is stuck on 14. “I think pretty much everything beyond this will be gravy,” conceded Woods. “I’m still shy of Jack’s record (of 18 majors to Woods’s 14) but in my 20 years out here, I think I’ve achieved a lot.”

Woods revealed that instead of doing any rehabilitation work on his back, he spent most of the last two months playing video games. What’s more? Woods also revealed that he mutes the volume so those “he is playing against cannot hear who he is.”
Perhaps the most recognizable competitor of this sporting generation is now trying to remain anonymous.
Woods turns 40 at the end of the month.
