Tiger Woods at Masters: “I don’t know how many more I have in me”

Tiger Woods isn’t sure how many Masters Tournaments he has left but he’s sure that Rory McIlroy will eventually win it.

Tuesday at the Masters saw Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy and front the media in attendance at Augusta National.

Tiger Woods chatted about the rollback of the ball, the changes to the 13th hole, and admitted he really isn’t sure how many more MAsters he has left in him.

“I don’t know how many more I have in me. So just (have) to be able to appreciate the time I have here and cherish the memories,” Woods told a packed media room at Augusta National.

“As I sit here, I’ve said to you guys before, I’m very lucky to have this leg; it’s mine. Yes, it had been altered and there’s some hardware in there, but it’s still mine,”

“It has been tough and will always be tough. The ability and endurance of what my leg will do going forward will never be the same. I understand that. That’s why I can’t prepare and play as many tournaments as I like, but that’s my future, and that’s OK. I’m OK with that.”

Woods played a practice round on Tuesday with Rory McIlroy and Fred Couples with both players admitting the 15-time major champion is still hitting the ball as well as ever, but walking the golf course is proving difficult.

And as for Rory McIlroy’s chances of winning that elusive green jacket, Woods thinks it’s inevitable.

“He will. It’s just a matter of time,” said Woods.

“Rory has the talent. He has the game. He has all the tools to win here. It’s just a matter of time. A lot of things have to happen to win at this golf course. A lot of things have to go right. I think Rory has shown over the years he’s learned how to play this golf course, and you just have to understand how to play it.”
