Woods, 44, was asked the following question on GolfTV on Friday: “If you had one thing you could go back in time and tell your kid, what would it be? “
Woods was quick with an answer.
“Yeah, don’t run as much,” he said. “Running more than 30 miles a week for probably my first five, six years of touring practically destroyed my body and my knees. “
According to Nick Piastowski of Golf.com, Woods would start his day with a four-mile run before hitting both the weight room and the golf course. He would end his day with another four-mile race.
Woods is tied with Sam Snead for the most wins (82) in PGA Tour history. Woods won 13 of his 15 major career championships before the age of 33 before injuries began to take their toll, requiring multiple knee and back surgeries.
