If the Masters had been held this weekend as originally planned, Tiger Woods said he would have been “good to go.”
Woods joined CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz from his home on Sunday for the re-airing of his 2019 win at Augusta.
Despite the Majors being postponed until November, Woods told Nantz he’s still been transforming into his “normal pre-Major-championship self.” He told Nantz, “I’ve been doing it for so long that things were starting to come together, I was starting to peak.”
Woods wanted to get out of the house and just have fun hitting the balls when he realized he was subconsciously getting ready.
“I know that the tournament's been postponed, not [to be played] until November, but for some reason I was still peaking anyways,” he said. “Just goes to show you, muscle memory."
Woods last competed in mid-February at the Genesis Invitational, but skipped the WGC-Mexico Championship, Arnold Palmer Invitational and Players Championship, later canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, due to issues with his back.
The Masters has been rescheduled for Nov. 12-15 at Augusta National Golf Club and will likely be played without fans in attendance.
