Tiger Woods has revealed that he expects to be fit for the US Open next month after suffering knee, Achilles, calf and back problems over the last few weeks.
The most famous individual tournament of all gets under way on 16th June and Woods is confident he can get himself back to fitness in time despite struggling to walk the last time he played.
The American has been wearing a protective boot on his left foot though and sports betting pundits note how this should speed up the recovery as well as show how determined he is not to miss the event.
Speaking about his progress, Woods said: “I feel that, in the next week or so, I can start practising pain free. That’s where I’m at.”
His doctors have then said that there is no need for further surgery, something Woods is clearly relieved about. He can now focus on getting himself ready for the US Open.
It has certainly been a frustrating time for him and this was highlighted by post on his Twitter account ahead of speaking to the press on Tuesday.
He stated that he would donate $1m to his foundation if nobody asked him about his leg. Quite frankly, he is fed up of talking about it and just wants to get back to playing golf again.
Then, he can work on moving up the world rankings again. In recent weeks, he has dropped outside of the top ten for the first time in 14 years and he currently sits in 12th position.
Defending this fall, Woods said: “I haven’t played. It’s one of the reasons I’ve fallen as far as I have. When I did play, I haven’t played well. Winning takes care of all of that.”
The 35-year-old would love to get back to winning ways at the US Open, something those placing sports bets are bound to consider. That would be fantastic for his confidence and for his rehabilitation process.
