The American struggled during the tournament at Augusta

Tiger Woods has revealed he's hoping to play in all four majors this year - despite struggling at the Masters.

The American completed 72 holes of a major for the first time in two years, showing some of the quality of old in the process.

Woods did regress as the tournament went on, however, and finished on 16 over after a mixed day on Sunday.

The 48-year-old has battled injury issues over the years, with the golf icon clearly a shadow of the player he used to be.

But Woods doesn't planning on walking away from the sport just yet, despite everything he's gone through over the years.

Speaking to Sky, the American revealed he was hoping to play in all four majors.

And he also admitted that he'll only be able to do that if his body lets him.

"I hoped I was going to shoot something in the 60s. I thought I had that in my system but unfortunately it didn't go that way," he said.

"I think the rest of the majors [this year] is definitely doable for me. Hopefully my body will cooperate in the next three."

Woods also insisted he was happy with his performance overall, even though he finished bottom of the leaderboard - having made the cut for the final day.

“It was a good week. It was a good week all around," the five-time champion said.

“I think that coming in here, not having played a full tournament in a very long time, it was a good fight on Thursday and Friday.

"Unfortunately, yesterday it didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to.”

The golf icon feels the wind didn't help his cause, with conditions tricky for him to play in.

"I think that just the wind and what it was doing out here to the golf shots and the balls and putting, how difficult the course was playing, it doesn't take much to get out of position here,” he added.

“Unfortunately, I got out of position a lot yesterday and a couple times today.”

Woods, a year ago, managed to complete just 36 holes.

The evident improvement has the icon eyeing glory at next month's PGA Championship.

And Woods says he will keep on putting in the work as he looks to rediscover the form that once made him the best golfer on the planet.

"Just keep lifting, keep the motor going, keep the body moving, keep getting stronger, keep progressing," he said.

"Hopefully the practice sessions will keep getting longer."

Former golfer Butch Harmon was pleased with the way Woods played at Augusta.

And he has hailed the 48-year-old for continuing to fight on, despite the struggles he's endured with his body.

"When he shows up, Tiger actually feels like he can compete," he said.

"This guy doesn't dial it in. He doesn't quit. He kept trying all the way round.

"I'll tell you this, the round of golf he played on Friday, in that wind, he put on a clinic on how to play this golf course in those conditions.

"Unfortunately I think that long day just did him in - he was just knackered, his body gave out on him.

"He says he's going to try and play the PGA at Valhalla. Let's see if that happens.

"I would love to see him, even if just for one round, to shoot something in the 60s to give us something to cheer."
