Tiger Woods missed the cut at The Open leaving fans wondering when he would play again. His caddy, Joe LaCava, provided an insight into his schedule.
Tiger Woods’ walk through the 18th hole at St Andrews was an emotional moment felt by almost everyone in the golfing world. Part of it was the story unfolding before our eyes, but also the uncertain future of perhaps the greatest golfer in history.
Despite missing the cut at The Open Championship, Wood’s comeback this year to compete in three major championships – and made the cut in two of them – was notable. However, there were real questions about what’s in store for The Cat in 2023 and beyond. On Thursday, however, we got a glimpse from a reliable source: his caddy, Joe LaCava.
LaCava said he hopes he and Tiger will train this fall, with plans not only to play the Hero World Challenge (an event Woods is hosting) and the PNC Championship with Charlie Woods, but that he also likes to 3- 4 starts before heading to The Masters.

Honestly, this confirms what was shown at The Open. At least by the eye test, that was perhaps the healthiest Woods looked in any of the three majors he’s played – the problem was that he looked like a player who hadn’t played in many competitive rounds this year. The rust was obvious and showed in his game.
With that in mind, the plan for Woods to play 3-4 times before going to Augusta should be exciting for fans. Even if he was healthy, Tiger in his mid-40s would never play a full PGA Tour calendar again. He has passed this point in his illustrious career. However, it’s a good sign for his health that he’s planning to be on the pitch as much and, of course, playing The Masters again.
