Victory was near, but that was not the main thing this Sunday.
Tiger Woods made his return to competition after a terrible car crash last February during the PNC Championship Father-Son Tournament, which is being played at the Ritz Carlton Golf Course in Orlando, Florida.
Woods had 11 consecutive birdies with his 12-year-old son Charlie to score 57, or 15 under par, and end the tournament with a score of 25 under par.
However, the Woods duo had to bow to John Daly and his son John Daly II, ultimately tournament winners with 27 under par.
Woods, who nearly had his right leg amputated after his accident in Los Angeles, said he was "just happy and grateful to be able to do this" on the NBC television station.
“I still have my own leg, which was uncertain for a while, and it works.
I'm just very tired, I'm not used to this.
"" I think this might just be my fourth or fifth round of golf this year.
I am a bit exhausted.
It was good to have a cart, ”he added.
Still "a long way to go"
The American in the Major 15s said this week he still has “a long way to go” before he is able to return to top-level golf, even on an occasional basis.
But this week in Orlando was an opportunity to play with his son Charlie for the second year in a row.
“A few weeks ago we weren't sure if I would do this or not, but here we are,” Woods said.
“And we had the best time ever.
“I wish I could walk the fairways with him and be next to him all the time like last year.
But I did what I could, ”added Woods, who said his“ competitive streak ”would never go away, regardless of his physical limitations.
“It's my environment,” he said.
“It's what I've been doing all my life.
