Notah Begay III: Tiger Woods has ‘zero mobility’ with ankle

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods has been dealing with health issues for quite some time now.

While that’s hardly breaking news, Notah Begay III likely raised a few eyebrows when discussing the health of the 15-time major champion during a conference call on Wednesday, per USA Today.

“He’s trying to formulate a strategy and approach that he can work within given the constraints that he’s presented with. And he’s got some constraints,” said Begay, a longtime friend and commentator for NBC Sports.

“He’s got zero mobility in that left ankle and really has low-back challenges now, which he knew he was going to have.”

Woods withdrew from his own tournament, the Genesis Invitational in February, due to what he said was the flu — although many questioned if it was a back issue. The 48-year-old has been nursing several injuries — including a severe injury to his right leg — since he was involved in a car accident in February 2021.

“For the past couple months, he’s been trying to find a way to recover,” Begay said. “He can play the golf. We always knew the question was going to be, ‘Can he walk the 72 (holes)?’ That’s still up in the air. But can he recover, from one round to the next? That’s the biggest question that I really don’t know and he’s not going to know either until he gets out there and figures out whether the way he’s prepared for this year’s Masters is going to work for him.”

Multiple media outlets reported that Woods played a round of golf last weekend at Augusta National Golf Club in preparation for the Masters Tournament, which begins next Thursday.

Woods, who has officially entered to go after his sixth Masters title, played Saturday’s round with his good friend Justin Thomas and ANGC chairman Fred Ridley in Augusta, Ga.

Since his last Masters victory in 2019, Woods finished tied for 38th in the 2020 event, did not participate in 2021, finished 47th in 2022 and withdrew last year because of plantar fasciitis after making the 36-hole cut.
