Tiger Woods is gunning to eventually come back to the golf course … so says his pal Steve Stricker, who said Wednesday the legend is rehabbing with the intent of playing again.
Stricker — the captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team this year — made the revelation during a chat with Dennis Paulson and Carl Paulson, explaining El Tigre has been making strides toward picking up his clubs again.
“I’ve talked to Tiger a lot,” Stricker said. “He’s a part of this Ryder Cup family. He won’t be able to be a captain’s assistant this time around just because of his ongoing rehabilitation to try to get better and to try to play golf again, and that is going well.”
Stricker added, “[Tiger] is progressing. He’s doing well, things are moving in the right direction.”
Many have doubted Woods would ever compete in a golf tournament again after he suffered horrific leg injuries during a car crash last February.
The 45-year-old shattered and broke bones in his right leg — needing a rod, screws and pins to fix the damage — and he was still on crutches and moving gingerly as of July.
Stricker, though, made it clear Wednesday that Tiger is hoping to play again … and has still been very involved in the Ryder Cup process.
“He’s very passionate about this,” Stricker said of Woods. “We’ve had a number of talks.”
