CNN’s Living Golf host Shane O’Donoghue speaks exclusively to Tiger Woods in Dubai. In the wide ranging interview, Woods spoke about the current state of the United States of America and his returned to the sport following some nerve damage in his back.
When asked what his message to fellow Americans is at this time he said, “We’re fellow Americans. And as Americans we come together and we do what’s best for our country. And we need to be united, and be Americans. And I know there is a lot of divisiveness as of right now but time, patience and unity I think will win out.”
He reveals there were “a lot of dark times where I couldn’t get out of bed,” during his recovery from injury. He also feared not being able to return to the sport due to the pain of the nerve damage: ‘I’d rather have a damaged knee every day than deal with nerve pain again.’ He added, “It’s like hitting your funny bone a thousand times a day. It becomes not so funny.”
The full interview with Tiger Woods will air in March’s edition of ‘Living Golf’ on CNN International.

This March, join CNN’s James Williams as he gets a full shot of adrenaline in Auckland, New Zealand. In the morning, Williams takes in the skyline as he bungee jumps off the Harbour Bridge before heading to Te Matuku Bay Oysters with chef Tom Hishon. In the afternoon, Williams tests his mettle with two-time Rugby World Cup champion and Auckland Blue, Jerome Kaino. Then it’s off to the wild west coast of Auckland for a Land Rover tour, stopping for a clay pigeon shooting lesson. This far down south, the sun sets late, so Williams takes full advantage of the long days by taking a helicopter ride to Waiheke Island. He rides horseback along the beach while getting a lesson in local Maori culture before watching the sunset at one of Waiheke’s famous lookouts.
