Many are rooting for Tiger Woods to have a profitable comeback, however one golf legend does not actually care.
In an interview with Golfweek, Jack Nicklaus mentioned he will not be dialed in to see how Woods does in his return.
“I am not in any respect,” Nicklaus mentioned.
Whereas it might sound insensitive, the 77-year-old did make clear that he does hope for the very best for Woods, however he will not be watching.
“Do I want [Tiger] effectively? Yeah, however I am not fascinated with watching him,” Nicklaus mentioned. “I’ve watched him play golf for 20-something years, why would I wish to go watch extra? I do not watch anyone play golf.”
Nevertheless, Nicklaus did admit he caught a glimpse of Woods’ swing through the Hero World Problem and he complimented him on his swing.
“Tiger appeared to hit the ball fairly effectively over there and appeared to take pleasure in it and be pain-free and I want him effectively,” Nicklaus mentioned. “The swing as I noticed, seemed good. It seemed like a swing of anyone who did not wish to harm his again.”
Nicklaus could also be somewhat bitter since Woods, 42, might nonetheless technically problem him in main match wins; Woods has 14 and is 4 away from tying Nicklaus’ mark of 18.
