“I’ve gotten a lot stronger since the Masters,” Woods told The New York Post. “We returned to work on Tuesday [after the Masters]. Monday was horrible. I did nothing and Tuesday was leg day. So we came back right after.”

It was unclear if Woods was going to play for the PGA Championship after the Masters.

He expressed interest in playing after his last round at Augusta, although he was aiming for the Open Championship. He said “everything” has been better since he and his camp started preparing for the event about a week ago.

Woods was able to walk the Masters completely on the struggling leg. Augusta is considered one of the most difficult courses to ride due to the hills and slopes.

He expressed his excitement about participating in future events, even though he will never return to his full-time schedule.

“He’s only going to get stronger,” Woods said of his lower body. “The more I use it, the stronger it gets. Am I going to have full mobility? No. Never again. But I can get stronger. It’s going to keep getting better. It’s going to keep getting stronger. strong. It’s going to hurt, but that’s how it’s going to be.”
