Woods was forced to withdraw from the Hero World Challenge, an event he hosted in early December, due to plantar fasciitis in his foot.

«It’s been a lot harder than people probably imagine,» Woods said on Dec. 18, according to ESPN. «Some of the players who are very close to me know what I’ve been through, and they’re the ones who encourage me to step back a bit. But that’s not really in my nature. My nature is trying to improve and I’ve already done that. Through the work ethic, I was able, as I said, to play and compete in three major championships this year.
