CHASKA, Minn. - Tiger Woods has indicated he would play in the Olympics if golf became part of the program in 2016.
The International Olympic Committee executive board is to meet Thursday in Berlin to recommend two sports for inclusion in the 2016 Olympics, with golf and rugby sevens the favourites.
Woods said Tuesday he thought golf should have been included a while ago. He then was asked if he would compete.
"If I'm not retired by then, yeah," Woods said. Asked again if he would play, Woods nodded his head and said, "Yep."
It was his most definitive comments about his participation in the Olympics. If golf gets selected for the Olympics, Woods will be 40 for the 2016 Games.
