Golf returned to the Games in 2016 after a 112-year absence but Woods, who dominated the sport in the first decade of the 21st century, missed its return through injury.

“Making the Olympic team is a big goal,” the 15-times Major winner told Reuters in an emailed interview. “I don’t see myself having too many opportunities other than next year.

“Four years from now, at the next Olympic Games, I’ll be 48 years old. To be one of the top Americans at that age is going to be tough.

“I went to my first Olympic Games when it was in Los Angeles (1984). So now to have the opportunity to be a part of the Olympics, because golf in my lifetime wasn’t a part of the Olympics, is an important aspect for us and the growth of the game.

“The game has become so global, and so reaching, that I think the Olympic Games is a great extension of that and I’d like to be a part of it.”

Woods will get a taste of golf-crazy Japan when he competes in ‘The Challenge: Japan Skins’ on Oct 21. (Reuters)
