Golf pro Tiger Woods says that he’s looking forward to returning to the U.S. PGA Tour, but that “a lot depends on the baby, which is due pretty soon. That takes precedent over anything I do golf-wise.”
Woods hasn’t played competitive golf since undergoing knee surgery in June, but said in a newsletter on his website that he is practicing “full-bore” and that he is excited about returning to golf.
“Early on, I didn’t miss golf because I enjoyed staying home with Elin and daughter Sam(pictured), and I knew I wasn’t physically able to play,” Woods said. “The truth is, I would have embarrassed myself. Now, I’m getting my feel and practice back. It’s just a matter of playing more on the course.”
But Woods is not certain when he will return.
“The perfect scenario is I come back without a hitch and play a full schedule,” said Woods, who took part in 16 PGA Tour events in 2007 and 15 in 2006. “At this point, especially with the baby coming, I’m taking it tournament to tournament. With our new addition, it’s going to be a hectic spring.”
Tiger Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren , will give birth to the couple’s second child this month.
