Nicklaus gets candid about the future of Tiger Woods

Recently, the 83-year-old golf legend sat down with Nick Faldo on his podcast, ‘Sir Nick’s Round Table Chats’. There Nicklaus got to talking about Woods and his future in the sport, and it wasn’t long before he revealed what the 15-time major winner has planned for his future.

He stated that Woods was inclined towards playing on the Senior Circuit of the PGA Tour once he turned 50. That’s in less than 3 years! “He’d love to play the senior tour,” he claimed. “That’s what I love about Tiger. He’s a competitor, he loves competition.”

Woods’ participation in the Tour of Champions could prove quite fruitful for the 82-time PGA Tour champion. Considering his injuries on the senior tour, he will be allowed to use the golf cart to navigate the course, something he would never do on the PGA Tour. And hence, he could play more competitively and strain his body a lot less. Furthermore, it would prove to be good practice for when he takes the field at the major championships.

Golf World reacts to Woods’ future prospects

It excited the fans when they heard Nicklaus mention Woods’ plans for the long run. After all, this meant that they would get to see a lot more of the 15-time major winner competing. One even suggested that the senior circuit would be more watched than the PGA Tour itself.

Many were thrilled that Woods would be playing a lot more than he does now. Many fans even shared the belief that playing on the senior tour would be extremely beneficial for the golf pro.

Some fans even believed that he would set fire to the senior circuit events with his skills. They warned the German golfer Bernhard Langer, who is currently dominating on the Champions Tour, that Woods would be gunning after all his records.
