Tiger Woods has revealed that he might be participating in the Tokyo Olympics to be staged next year as he looks to add to his decorated career.
“I don’t see myself having too many opportunities other than next year,” Woods said. “Four years from now, at the next Olympic Games, I’ll be 48 years old. To be one of the top Americans at that age is going to be tough. I went to my first Olympic Games when it was in Los Angeles (in 1984) so now to have the opportunity to be a part of the Olympics, because golf in my lifetime wasn’t a part of the Olympics, is an important aspect for us and the growth of the game” He added.
Woods is the second most successful male golfer of all time with only Jack Nicklaus having won more with 18. The top 15 players in the world rankings qualify for the Olympics, with a limit of four players from each country.
Woods is currently ninth in the world but is the sixth highest-ranked American which might hamper his chances of making history.
