Tiger Woods felt he was ‘starting to peak’ before postponed Masters
Sunday would have been the final day of the Masters, and Tiger Woods thinks he would have had a chance to be in the hunt had it been played as scheduled.
Woods relived his 2019 triumph with CBS’s Jim Nantz during a replay of the final round. Woods said he would have been ready to play the Masters as scheduled, and that his body was in “normal pre-major” mode based on the time of year.
“I was out practicing and subconsciously getting ready; I didn’t realize I was getting ready,” Woods said, via Bob Harig of ESPN. “I just wanted to go out there, have some fun, hit some balls and get out of the house. But it’s amazing. I’ve been doing it for so long that things were starting to come together; I was starting to peak. We try to peak four times a year; and I know that the tournament’s been postponed, not until November — but for some reason, I was still peaking anyway.”
Woods will instead have to wait until November, which definitely doesn’t fit with his normal major schedule. It will be interesting to see how his internal clock handles the delay.
