Woods would go onto say ‘I’m not done’ another two times in his TV interview with Wade, giving golfing fans around the world the hope they will see arguably the greatest of all time return to the golf course.
Wade paid tribute to the golfing great earlier in the GolfDigest episode, explaining – like many golf fans – that Woods was his inspiration for getting into the sport.
The former Heat star said: “You know, that’s the reason I picked up a golf club, because Tiger made it cool,” the NBA alum said. “So I want to learn something from the greatest of all time.”
As well as his appearance on the pre-recorded GolfDigest show, there was more good news for Woods fans this week, after his former Ryder Cup teammate gave a positive update on the 45-year-old’s rehabilitation following the severe injuries he sustained in February’s crash.
Fowler said: “I know as kind of stubborn as he is, being as big of a golf nerd as all of us are, he’s putting the work in. I know it’s been tough. It’s a long road till now, he’s got a long road ahead, but he’s putting the work in.”
