Tiger Woods Heads To Portrush After Light Schedule in Bid to Prolong Career

The 43-year-old has played just three tournaments – two of them majors – since winning the Masters in April. Woods, who ended an 11-year major drought at Augusta, is playing less golf to ease the strain on his back.

“You have to understand, if I play a lot, I won’t be out here that long,” said the 15-time major champion.” The tricky part is trying to determine how much tournament play I need to get the feel for the shots and also understanding where my body is.”

Woods underwent spinal fusion surgery in 2017 to try and rectify long-standing back problems.

Victory at Augusta saw Woods win a fifth Green Jacket, 22 years after his first, but the American, who has climbed back up to fifth in the world rankings, added: “Getting myself into position to win the Masters took a lot out of me. That golf course puts so much stress on the system. “It was a very emotional week. It’s hard to believe I pulled it off.”
