Tiger Woods, who trained on Sunday in Southern Hills, Arizona, for the PGA Championship, the second round of the Grand Slam which will begin on Thursday, said he felt “much stronger” than he was when he returned. in April at the Masters Tournament, reports Sports Illustrated.
“I have become much stronger since Augusta,” assured the winner of 15 Major tournaments after nine holes of training.
He had surprised the world of golf, making his return to the greens more than thirteen months after his serious car accident which occurred near Los Angeles and which nearly cost him his right leg. Overcoming the pain, he had passed the cut and finished in 47th place in the Masters, believing that this performance was one of the greatest of his career, however punctuated with titles.
Woods said the Monday after that ordeal “was horrible” but on Tuesday he was back in the gym to strengthen his leg. And “everything is better,” said the 46-year-old star.
Two weeks ago, he had already come to measure himself on the Southern Hills course, where he won the PGA Championship in 2007, to see the changes made after a major overhaul of the premises in 2019.
