Updated : December 03, 2019 10:26 AM IST

43-year-old Tiger Woods made an inspiring comeback recently when he won his 15th Masters title after a span of 11 years. In the last ten years, Tiger Woods has battled injuries and personal setbacks but he is now eyeing a spot at the Olympics.

“Somehow everything came together at the Masters and to have my family and friends there who have seen the struggles, I have had to try and get back into it again, to finally earn another jacket. It’s such an incredible experience and it’s the one that I would look back on forever because it meant so much to not just myself but everyone who has been close to me," Woods told CNBC-TV18's Parikshit Luthra, who caught up with the professional golfer at the Hero World Challenge in Albany at Bahamas.

Hero Motocorp is the title sponsor of Hero World Challenge and Tiger Woods is the host of the tournament.

Talking about Hero World Challenge, Woods said, “The top players of the world come and play this event and it’s incredible. The guys coming here are focused, competitive and it has allowed us as a foundation to grow and allowed us to serve over million kids now and without events like this, we won’t be able to help the next generation going forward."
