Tiger reveals future doubts
Following his victory at Augusta, Tiger Woods has revealed he had doubts over whether he would ever play again.
The 43-year-old's fall from grace is well documented and his back issues are also well known but he has now admitted that at one point just a couple of years ago he was actually struggling to walk let alone hit a golf ball.
After earning his fifth Green Jacket at Augusta, Woods revealed he has found a way of playing which is not the same as it used to be but is very effective and he still has the touch needed round a green.
"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple years ago. I could barely walk. I couldn't sit, couldn't lay down. I really couldn't do much of anything," Woods said.
"Luckily, I had the procedure on my back, which gave me a chance at having a normal life. But then all of a sudden, I realised I could actually swing a golf club again.
"I felt if I could somehow piece this together that I still had the hands to do it.
"The body's not the same as it was a long time ago, but I still have good hands."
