Tiger targets Tokyo Olympics


BETHPAGE, United States (AFP) – Tiger Woods plans to practice smarter and play less to keep his body fresh, but the 43-year-old golf star might change that strategy to reach the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Woods, who snapped an 11-year major drought by winning last month’s Masters, seeks his 16th major title at this week’s 101st PGA Championship at Bethpage Black.

With the PGA settling into its new May date after moving from August, it’s only the sixth time Woods has not played between major starts, admitting Tuesday he wasn’t mentally ready to return two weeks ago at Quail Hollow.

Woods, who will play only nine-hole practice rounds Monday and Wednesday, also says the chance to play in next year’s Olympics is enticing even if it might make him play more events next season to secure a spot.
