"We got on a nice heater; Charlie was hitting the ball unbelievable,'' Woods said after the championship, ESPN reported. "It [winning] would have had a special meaning in my heart for sure, there's no doubt about that. And it still does."

"The fact that I'm able to have this opportunity this year, even a couple weeks ago we didn't really know whether or not I would be doing this, but here we are," he reportedly added. "And we had just the best time ever, and I just wish I could have walked down the fairways with him and been side by side with him the entire time like we were last year.''

"I’m happy and thankful that I’m able to do this. What a blast it was," Woods said, per The Guardian, before acknowledging his past injury. "I still have my old leg, which was questionable for a while, and it’s functioning. I’m just really tired. I’m not used to this. I think this might be my fifth round of golf this year. I’m a little worn out, but it was nice to have a cart."

The father-of-two was injured in a rollover car crash in February. As previously reported by OK!, Woods required surgery on his lower right leg and ankle on the day of the crash and was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center days later for follow-up procedures.

Last month, Woods told Golf Digest he may not ever return to golf full time. "I think something that is realistic is playing the Tour one day — never full-time ever again — but pick and choose, just like Mr. [Ben] Hogan did," he candidly explained. "You pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that. You practice around it, and you gear yourself up for it. I think that's how I'm going to have to play it from now on."

Woods shares Charlie and his daughter, Sam, with Elin Nordegren.
