Tiger Woods has rediscovered more than just the ability to win lately.
Having ended 2011 with his first victory in two years, Woods said the joy of being able to play golf with a healthy body has returned as well.
Ahead of his first tournament of the year in Abu Dhabi, Woods told The Associated Press via email that he has fully recovered from the leg injuries that ruined much of last season, and that he hopes his recent win at the Chevron World Challenge was “the start of another great run.”
“The lowest moments (last year) came from the fact that I wasn’t healthy and couldn’t put in the time on and off the course that I wanted and needed to, and that was frustrating,” Woods said. “I was playing with pain and that isn’t fun. The last couple of months have been really fun and that is mostly because I am feeling healthy again and building week on week.
“I am looking to get off to a fast start in Abu Dhabi and keep building from there. Now that I am healthy, I feel I can keep building my game and confidence week on week, much like I did at the end of (last) year— from the Australian Open to the Presidents Cup to, finally, a win in California.”
