Tiger Woods cites mental rustiness in PGA Tour Return, plans redemption in Hero World Challenge

Posted : 01 December 2023

Tiger Woods expressed his mental rustiness after returning to competitive golf with a three-over-par 75 in the first round of the PGA Tour's Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. The 15-time major winner, absent from play since withdrawing during the Masters in April and subsequent ankle surgery, acknowledged feeling mentally unprepared despite a physically sound performance. Limited competition since a 2021 car crash and a serious leg injury prompted Woods to keep a restricted schedule, emphasizing the toll on the mental aspect of his game.


The former world No 1, currently eight shots behind leaders Brian Harman and Tony Finau, admitted to making mental errors not characteristic of his game. Woods, though satisfied with his physical condition, identified a need for improvement in his mental approach. Reflecting on the day, he noted a lack of adherence to his usual mental routines, recognizing the areas that require refinement for optimal performance.


Despite feeling "sore all over," Woods expressed eagerness for the tournament's second round, hosted for the benefit of his charity. He outlined plans for preparation, acknowledging the need to address mental aspects while looking forward to returning to the gym. Determined to rebound from a challenging mental day, Woods aims to hit better shots in the upcoming rounds and refine his overall performance on the course.
