Here’s Begay talking about Woods on CBS Radio on Monday morning
“I’ve been in contact with him this week. He missed being at Augusta and certainly was watching the tournament, (but) I think he needs to give (his back) a minimum of 90 days to make sure that scar tissue heals up appropriately and he doesn’t run the risk of re-injuring it. So that would push him past the U.S. Open.”
“Oh, definitely. He’s well aware of that. It’s certainly not a big secret. It’s not something that he’s trying to ignore. He realizes that he’s approaching 40.”
He did not attend the Masters Champions Dinner on Tuesday of Masters week for the first time since winning the 1997 Masters
