Nicklaus “not interested at all” in watching woods comeback

Golf legend Jack Nicklaus says he is “not interested at all” in seeing Tiger Woods making his grand comeback on his television screen – despite the 14-time major winner playing in his first tournament in 300 days earlier this month.

Woods put in a very good shift and looked comfortable on the links, showing little to no rust as he seemed calm and composed during his rounds.

However, the only man to have won more majors than Woods, Jack Nicklaus, says he won’t be tuning in to see how Tiger progresses in 2018.

In an interview with GolfWeek, Nicklaus was asked if he will be watching Woods’ play next year. The Golden Bear replied, “I’m not interested at all.”

“Do I wish (Tiger) well? Yeah, but I’m not interested in watching him,” Nicklaus commented.

“I’ve watched him play golf for 20-something years, why would I want to go watch more? I don’t watch anybody play golf.”

Although Nicklaus clearly caught some of Tiger’s return, saying: “Tiger seemed to hit the ball pretty well over there and seemed to enjoy it and be pain-free and I wish him well.

“The swing as I saw, looked good. It looked like a swing of somebody who didn’t want to hurt his back.”

Tiger Woods has made no public announcement on his schedule for early 2018.
