A visibly emotional Woods wiped the tears away from his eyes as he neared the end of what could be his final round at the historic course.

Woods nearly lost his leg in a horrific car crash in February 2021, and still walks with a limp.

The 15-time major winner admitted his injuries may prevent him from playing when The Open returns to St Andrews in eight years.

Speaking to Sky Sports after what could be his final round at the course, Woods said: “It was very emotional for me.

“I’ve been coming here since 1995 and I think the next one comes around in 2030 and I don’t know if I will be physically able to play by then, so this felt to me like it will be last time to play at St. Andrews.

“I came to understand what Jack (Nicklaus) and Arnold (Palmer) felt in the past and I felt that way.

“I have been lucky enough to win here twice – it felt emotional because I don’t know whether I will be able to play when it comes back here.”
