Close friend, and former Ryder Cup teammate, Rickie Fowler also gave an update on Woods’ recovery two months prior at the 3M Open in Minnesota, as he confirmed that the 45-year-old was ‘putting the work in’ during his recovery.
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.”
Whilst Woods’ playing return date is still unknown, the American did confirm he would be hosting this year’s Hero World Challenge event in the Bahamas this November, after the event was postponed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
