iger Woods‘ health was updated this week by Justin Thomas, who said the 15-time major champion is “doing well, considering all things considered.”
According to Thomas, when he isn’t on the road, the two of them visit each other several times per week when they are not on the road. There have been just a few public appearances for Tiger Woods since his car accident in February. There have been no significant updates on his health in recent months, other from a few shaky videos of him walking on his own at his son Charlie’s junior tournament.
“I don’t know,” Thomas remarked when questioned about a possible return to competition. I’m sure he’ll give it his all. If he can’t play well, I don’t see him ever playing. I don’t get the impression he’s the type to say, “All right, I’m going to give Augusta a shot this year.” That’s not going to happen to him.
“I think he realizes that there’s a fair probability that’s the only chance he’ll ever have to make another run before that.” At the same time, I am aware of his tenacity. I’m sure he’ll want to contribute something else at least once more. Obviously, I wish him well. But, at the same time, as long as he can resume his role as a regular father, everything else is a plus.”
Over the last few years, Thomas and Woods have become good friends, playing many practice rounds together and even pairing at the 2019 Presidents Cup. Thomas was one of the first players to be interviewed following Tiger Woods’ incident at Concession.
Thomas says he’s “doing good, all things considered” in his interactions with Woods this year.
“”Every day is Groundhog Day for him,” he explained. He can now be a father once more, which is the most important thing. There’s nothing new there; he’s still the same sarcastic jerk. So it makes me happy to know he’s still as happy as ever.”
