Woods played his first tournament in nearly 17 months at Augusta National after suffering a serious leg injury in a car accident in February 2021.
He has now arrived at Southern Hill Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma — the site of his fourth and most recent PGA Championship win in 2007 — for the men’s second major of the year.
“Will I ever have full mobility? No. Never again,” Woods said on Sunday.
“But I will be able to get stronger. It will hurt, but so will it be.
“I’m looking forward to it (this week). I won’t be playing that much in the future, so when I do it will be fun to play and compete. There are only so many money games you can play at home.”
After an opening round of 71 at the Masters, Woods followed with 74, 78 and 78 to finish the tournament in 47th place.
“We went back to work on Tuesday (after the Masters). Monday was terrible; I did nothing, and Tuesday was leg day. So we went right after it. Everything is better.”
Previously, Woods said he will play at the Open in St Andrews, Scotland in July.
