Tied at 54th for now, Woods talked about his present ‘sore’ leg situation in his flash interview at the tournament. When a reporter asked the player why he was “hopping in the bunker,” the golfer said, “It’s on my left leg. I’m good.” Not to forget, Woods almost lost his right leg during the infamous car crash two years ago. And as of now, the golfer has a metal rod and multiple screws holding his leg together.

“Hop on the left leg is fine. If I did it on the other one, not so fine,” the golfer added. And when asked if there was something specific that worsened the pain, Woods confirmed that “It’s constant!”

Was Woods satisfied with his game in the previous round?

Playing a competitive round after a long time, Woods made four pars and three bogeys before making his No. 8 birdie. However, his own analysis of his performance seemed a lot more positive than expected. “I felt like I drove it good,” the 47-year-old said. “I just didn’t do the job I need to do to get the ball close.”
