Woods, who finished tied for 45th, “My goal is to participate in all four majors”

‘Golf Emperor’ Tiger Woods (48, USA) announced his future schedule, saying, “This year’s goal is to participate in all four major tournaments” after finishing his comeback match after 7 months.

Woods caught 3 birdies in the final 4th round of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational held at the Riviera Country Club (par 71) in Pacific Palisades, California on the 20th (Korean time), but committed 5 bogeys and lost 2 He shot an over par 73.

Woods, who recorded a final total of 1 under par 283 strokes, finished the comeback match with a tie for 45th place.

After the tournament, Woods smiled bitterly, saying, “The winless march on the Riviera continues.” Woods has yet to win in 14 appearances at Riviera Country Club, the site of his PGA Tour debut in 1992 when he was 16 years old. He did not win this place even after winning 82 wins (15 major wins), tying the record for the most wins on the PGA Tour, which means that Woods recorded the most appearances among golf courses that did not win.

However, completing 72 holes is significant. His right leg has always been a big problem for him, having been in a major car accident two years ago that shattered his right knee and ankle bones. After the accident, Woods failed to complete 72 holes except for the Masters in April in the three competitions he participated in. He withdrew after the third round after passing the cut at the PGA Championship in May, and missed the cut at the Open Championship in July. In December, he tried to compete in the Hero World Challenge hosted by his foundation, but developed plantar fasciitis in his right foot and withdrew his participation.

Woods said in an interview with CBS after the game, “It was a little more difficult than expected. I made stupid mistakes here and there,” he said, “It’s unfortunate that I couldn’t figure out the fast green speed, but overall I was able to hit the ball comfortably like I did at home.” 온라인카지노

The US Golf Channel said, “Woods was particularly difficult on the greens and struggled to match his speed. He made 5 bogeys in the 4th round, but just like in the 2nd round, he made mistakes in his putting.”

Woods had averaged more than 300 yards of tee shots in the previous three rounds, but on this day, he was only 285.4 yards, and lost more than 1.5 strokes on the green, missing par putts within 2m in holes 5 and 15.

However, in the 3rd round, there were still moments that showed the appearance of a ‘golf emperor’, such as recording an eagle, a tap-in close to an albatross.
