Ahead of the return, the 14-times major champion has said that his children idolised Messi and considered Woods of Messi's stature in Golf.
"I said 'isn't it neat to be a living legend?' and she said, 'yes, we live with one!'" Goal.com quoted Woods, as saying.
Woods actually seemed surprised after hearing that as he never thought his children knew what he did with golf.
"They've never really seen me in action. Most of the stuff they've watched has been on highlight packages. They've never seen what I can do," he said.
Woods, 41, will make a competitive comeback on Thursday to replicate the glories of his past. (ANI)
