Tiger Woods Returns

Tiger Woods made PGA golf cool. His broken leg left it limp.

After winning the 2008 [kwlink1195]US Open Championship[/kwlink] in a playoff against Rocco Mediate in June 2008, the world’s No. 1 golfer had surgery to repair a broken leg. He’d played the entire tournament with the injury, gutting out one of the most incredible PGA wins of all time.

Woods’ return to golf in the Accenture Match Play Championship means the most famous athlete on the planet is back in action. But will Tiger be the same as when he left?


“I am as curious as you,” says Woods.”I haven’t done [this] in a while. Hopefully I can get into a flow quickly.”

During his time off Tiger had plenty of time to play his own video game as well as play with his daughter Sam and newborn son Charlie. He says he might have returned to golf sooner but wanted to be a good father.


“More than anything, it was about making sure my family was all good,” says Woods.”After that, I could start focusing on playing [golf] again. Everyone is happy and healthy.”


Now, however, it’s back to business. Woods will be keen to get off to a good start as he prepares for the biggest tournament in golf: The Masters.


The Masters starts in just over a month (April 9) and you know Tiger wants to make sure he’s in the hunt for another green jacket. And now that he is healthy, the rest of the golfers better watch out because this guy is tough.


"One of the great things coming back," says Tiger "is my bones aren't moving anymore."


"It's a very comforting feeling hitting a golf ball without your bones sliding all over the place. That's been very exciting to play that way, and I'm looking forward to the season."


Needless to say we here in the kidzworld sports room can’t wait to see the big cat back.
