Tiger Woods reveals that he struggled to even walk

As he was recovering from back injury

Tiger Woods has revealted that he struggled to walk and needed help getting out of bed during his recovery from a back injury.

Tiger underwent back surgery in April and was out of action for over ten months before making a successful comeback at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, where he finished T9.

"I hadn't played without pain for a long time - it was nice to just go out there and chill out," the 42 year-old has written on his website.

"During that 10-month period I was away from the game, I had a hard time walking and often needed assistance getting out of bed.

"I appreciate competitive golf now more than I ever have."

Woods added that he would "love" to play a full schedule in 2018.

"I'm continuing to progress and trying to get strong enough to where I can handle a workload again," he wrote.

"What that entails, including back-to-back events, I don't know. This is all uncharted territory."
