Jamil Qureshi Interview with Sky Sports – Will Tiger Woods be open-minded?

Sports psychologist Jamil Qureshi believes Tiger Woods will adopt a realistic approach during his comeback at the Hero World Challenge, live on Sky Sports Golf.

Woods, who turns 42 in December, has completed just seven competitive rounds during the past 27 months, having undergone a number of operations in a bid to repair his injured back.

The American has told journalists he is physically feeling a lot stronger, and Jamil Qureshi explained to Sky Sports News on Thursday that Woods is not the type of sportsman to put too much pressure on himself.

Qureshi, a performance coach and psychologist who has worked with many Ryder Cup golfers over the past few years, said: “Whenever I have had the chance to speak to him, he comes across as a very open-minded thinker.
