Tiger Woods set to compete using buggy after golf legend’s injury hell

Paul Broadhurst expects Tiger Woods to follow in his footsteps and compete on the PGA Champions Tour where he will be allowed to use a buggy in the future.

Paul Broadhurst has revealed that Tiger Woods is expected to join him on the PGA Champions Tour, where he will be able to use a buggy to help with his chronic walking pain.

Broadhurst, who has won and finished second in his last two appearances in the USA on the seniors tour, has taken his earnings this season to £580,000. Despite battling chronic arthritis in his ankle, the English ex-Ryder Cup star has won over £6million since joining the tour after turning 50.

Since last year, Broadhurst has been granted permission to use a buggy as he can no longer walk 18 holes due to his ankle condition, which requires medication and surgery. He believes that 15-time Major winner Woods will do the same when he turns 50 next year and joins the seniors, where anyone can now use a buggy if they wish.

Broadhurst, who will turn 59 in August, told the Mirror: “The tour are hoping Tiger is going to play the Champions Tour, no question. They are really hopeful and I think he has given out signs that he is more than happy to play once he turns 50.”
