Sir Nick Faldo has wondered how long Tiger Woods can continue playing despite the pain after the American superstar pulled out of the Masters.

The 15-time Major winner looked dying as he limped around Augusta National on Saturday before the game was abandoned in the rain. And Woods, 47, withdrew before the third round resumed on Sunday “due to my worsening plantar fasciitis”.

The former world No. 1 added: “Thank you to the fans and the Masters who have shown me so much love and support.” Before starting in only his fifth event since a horrific car crash in February 2021, Woods admitted his 25th Masters could be his last.

“I don’t know how much I still have in me,” he said. And after his first round, the world No. 1001 said he was in “pain” and in “constant pain”.

Woods had made back-to-back double bogeys on his final two holes in abysmal conditions on Saturday to sink to the bottom of the 54-man field to make the cut on the par nine.

Faldo tweeted, “The amount of rehab each day is brutal. It’s even worse if you don’t shoot a decent score! How long can he keep putting himself through this?

Woods had only planned to play the Majors and other select events this year after only playing three times last year.

The US PGA is at Oak Hill in Rochester, New York next month while The Open returns to Royal Liverpool in July. Woods won the Claret Jug there in 2006.
