Tiger Woods (To win a Major in 2022 – 18/1) made a return to competitive golf at the weekend in the PNC Championship and stated that his desire to compete will “never go away”.

The legendary 15-time Major winner suffered potentially life-threatening injuries in a car crash and required extensive treatment to his legs, as well as a shattered ankle.

In November he claimed the extent of his injuries had ended his professional career and he would play in a few events per year.

He made his return to action in this weekend’s PNC Championship, which is a father and son event open to winners of any of golf’s Majors.

Woods, along with his 12-year-old son Charlie, were impressive in the 36-hole event, but just fell short to John Daly and his son John Daly II.

Despite making 11 birdies in a row with his son, it was Team Daly who won the event, while Team Cink rounded out the top three.

Woods, who won his last Major in April 2019 at the Masters – a first major for 11 years – said he thoroughly enjoyed his return to action with his son.

Despite saying just a few weeks ago his professional career was over, the 45-year-old was not as clear cut in his answer this time, though insisting he is still some way off being ready to play at PGA Tour level.

“The competitive juices, they are never going to go away,” Woods said. “This is my environment. This is what I’ve done my entire life. I’m just so thankful to be able to have this opportunity to do it again.

“No, no, no, no,” Woods said when asked if was ready to make a professional comeback now. “I totally disagree. I’m not at that level. I can’t compete again these guys right now, no.

“It’s going to take a lot of work to get to where I feel like I can compete at these guys and be at a high level.”
