Legendary Golfer Tiger Woods has just admitted his determination to attend the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo at all costs.
Legendary Golfer Tiger Woods has just defined his goal to attend the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo to make his illustrious career close to the fullest. In fact, golf was included in the Olympic program in Rio 2016 after 112 years of absence, but at that time, Tiger Woods – who dominated the golf world during the first decade of the 21st century – was unable to attend due to injury.
“Going to the Olympics is a big goal,” said the Golfer, a 15 Major champion.
“Furthermore, I feel that I don’t have too many chances to go to the Olympics if I miss this. Next four years I went to the Olympics again, when I was 48 years old. American head seems too difficult.
When I won my first major golf title, the Olympics happened in Los Angeles (1984). And now I have the opportunity to close my career after attending the Olympics. Because I have never seen golf as part of the Olympics in my whole life, I consider this goal very important and the fact that golf being in the Olympics means so much to the development of the game. Golf is gaining popularity around the world and I believe the Olympics will greatly increase its coverage”.
Tiger Woods will have the opportunity to experience the feeling of golf in Japan when attending “The Challenge: Japan Skins”. He will compete in Chiba with golfer Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama.
Tiger Woods won a Masters earlier this year to put an end to 11 years of waiting for his 15th Major title. Before that, his career seemed to be a dead end due to four back surgeries in the period from 2014 to 2017.
