His comeback in limbo after pulling out of an event in Dubai, Tiger Woods has admitted he will “never feel great again.”
The former world No. 1 withdrew because of back spasms after the first round of the Dubai Desert Classic, prompting speculation over the 41-year-old’s ongoing fitness following 17 months out to recover from multiple back surgeries.
“I feel good, not great. I don’t think I will ever feel great because it’s three back surgeries, four knee operations,” Woods told former R&A chief executive Peter Dawson in a video interview for Dubai’s Vision Magazine at the Burj Al Arab hotel.
“I’m always going to be a little bit sore. As long as I can function, I’m fine with that.”
