Tiger Woods admits he may never be the same again, and it seems like the golfer has made his peace with that. Recovering and rehabilitating from his car crash that happened on February 23rd, Woods shed some light on what the process has been like, and what he has realized for himself both as a person and as a golfer. Here’s what he said to Golf Digest:
“I don’t have to compete and play against the best players in the world to have a great life,” he said. “After my back fusion, I had to climb Mount Everest one more time. I had to do it, and I did. This time around, I don’t think I’ll have the body to climb Mount Everest and that’s OK. I can still participate in the game of golf. I can still, if my leg gets OK, I can still click off a tournament here or there. But as far as climbing the mountain again and getting all the way to the top, I don’t think that’s a realistic expectation of me.”
