Tiger Woods insisted he will make a return to golf – but admitted he has a “long way to go”. 

After being seriously hurt in a car crash almost a year ago, the 15-time major winner revealed he had nearly lost his right leg and was “lucky to be alive”. 

Various claims have been made about his future, including suggestions he would never feature on the tour again.
