Meanwhile, this is a 36-hole event with no cut. Moreover, Tiger will most probably use a golf cart for the event as his injury isn’t completely healed yet. Recently, Woods gave his first-ever press conference at the 2021 Hero World Challenge. He attended the event as a host and gave some interviews to media houses.

The 15-time major championship winner played it safe. He wasn’t sure about the answer, so he just said 45 guaranteed, as Brady currently is 44 years old, and it is pretty clear that he will compete in the NFL for another year. Hence, Tiger cleverly answered the question and did not make any guess.

Meanwhile, Tiger, who is currently 45-years-old, will be turning 46 in just a couple of weeks. Even though he has a lot of golf left in him, the injuries have made it difficult to play consistently. Hence, during the press conference at the 2021 Hero World Challenge, he revealed that he is just going to pick and choose events.

However, Woods also made it clear that he is still far away from competing at the PGA Tour. He feels competing against the best players on tough courses would need a few more months.
