Tiger rushed his return at the Players Championship and quickly withdrew from the event. This week, Tiger is playing host the the AT&T National, where he won in 2009 . Tiger returns to this event (hosted at Aronimink Golf Club outside of Philadelphia due to Congressional hosted the US Open), but still not healthy enough to play. Here’s what Tiger had to say;
Both the knee and achilles are getting better. I haven’t hit any golf balls yet. I have putted … In retrospect, it was a borderline call whether I should have played the Players…. I wasn’t quite 100% . I unfortunately hurt myself there.
I’m sitting (with) no time-table. Usually I set a timetable when I want to come back and play… This one’s different…I’ll be back when I’m 100%. I don’t know when that’s gonna be.
I feel bad for Tiger. It’s pretty much out of his hands. He continued to say he’s getting strong, but that just sounds like therapy to me. Get well soon, Tiger. It would be great if he was back for The Open Championship, but I don’t have my hopes up.
