Tiger Woods will address the media on Tuesday ahead of the Hero World Challenge at the end of the month.
Golf Channel will broadcast Tiger Woods’ press conference live at 9 a.m. ET in the Bahamas during “Golf Today.” It will be the first time since his automobile accident in February that severely damaged his right leg that the 15-time major champion has spoken to the assembled media.
When Woods was involved in a car accident following his son Charlie’s junior tournament, he was rarely seen in public. There have been few official updates on his recovery. “Making progress” was Woods’ caption for a recent swing video he shared on social media.

Tiger Woods recently spoke to Golf Digest twice about his recovery and prospects. In a 30-minute interview posted on the website on Monday, Woods detailed his ailments, including the prospect of losing his right leg, and said he’s “not even halfway” through his recovery. There is a good chance Tiger Woods will never again play full-time on the PGA Tour, he claimed.
Digest quotes him as saying, “I think something that is realistic is playing the Tour one day – never full time, ever again – but pick and choose, exactly like Mr. [Ben] Hogan did. Choose a few events each year, and focus on those. You prepare for that by practicing in that manner. I believe that’s how I’ll have to play it from here on out. An unpleasant fact of life, yet it is mine. It’s clear to me, and I’m ready to accept it.”
