Tiger Woods' troubling injury update before of the Masters

A close buddy of Tiger Woods has given a bleak picture of the renowned golfer's physical condition ahead of the 2024 Masters.

Notah Begay III, who has been friends with Woods since they played together at Stanford

is now an analyst for NBC Sports. He spoke to reporters on a conference call this week about Woods' plans to compete at Augusta next week

He's trying to devise a plan and technique that will allow him to work within the limits that have been imposed on him

"And he has some constraints," Begay said Wednesday, according to USA Today.

Woods, 48, was claimed to have told Begay, "My ankle doesn't move." So something is going to relieve the stress. I mean, the stress will transfer somewhere else."

Woods was in a debilitating single-car accident in early 2021, and his leg was nearly amputated.

While Woods was miraculously able to return to the golf course in the first place, he has been obviously crippled in every competition in which he has competed since then.
