Tiger Woods is one of the greatest golfers of all time. The legendary golfer has won 82 PGA Tours and 15 major championships in his golfing career. However, more than this, his contribution to the game of golf has made this a global sport. He has inspired an entire generation to take up golf.

The 46-year-old golfer is now nearing the end of his career. Therefore, it is becoming strenuous for Woods to compete against the young guys on the regular tour. However, Woods still wants to achieve one more thing in his career, and recently Pat Perez, a fellow tour pro, revealed what it was.

During an interview with the Golf Sub Par podcast, Pat Perez revealed what Tiger Woods told him about competing on the Champions Tour. “There’s only one thing I want. I want that U.S. Senior Open trophy,” revealed Tiger. “Because then he has them all…every USGA trophy,” said Perez.

“But I mean think about all that. All the majors that would be unbelievable to have US junior, US Am, US Open, and Senior Open that nobody has,” revealed Pat.

However, the minimum age to qualify for the PGA Tour Champions is 50. Therefore, Tiger has to wait for 4-years to be eligible for the Champions Tour. So it will be interesting to see how the 15-time major championship winner goes ahead once he turns 50. 

When will Woods come back to professional golf?

The last time we saw Tiger Woods play was last month at the 2022 PGA Championship. However, we witnessed the struggle he is going through while walking because of the solo car crash that occurred in February 2021. His pain was visible from day one. Bit after putting on a fight for three days, Woods withdrew from the event. Since then, he has been away from professional golf.
