‘Hopefully I qualify’ – Tiger Woods reveals intention to represent USA at 2020 Olympics
Tiger Woods has said it is an ambition of his to represent the USA at the Olympic Games and he hopes to qualify for 2020.
Speaking in Japan, where the 2020 Games are set to be held, Woods was clear about his intentions.
“I would love to play in an Olympic Games,” he said. “Hopefully next year I can have a good year and qualify.”
Woods failed to qualify or the FedEx Cup earlier this year, and actually opted to bow out of contention early to sort out some health issues.
That included arthroscopic surgery on his knee, but he returned to play a Skins exhibition event in Japan last week, and he believes he is ahead of schedule on his fitness.
“I’m probably a week early. My season had ended a little bit earlier than I had expected it,” said Woods.
“I had the procedure a little bit early and got ahead of it.”
Woods will take his place in an exciting field at the inaugural Zozo Championships this week, where he will take on the likes of Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, and Xander Schauffele.
