Tiger Woods: Feeling better, but no timetable on return


14-time grand slam victor Woods is now taking an indefinite break from golf after having surgery on his back, and after speaking bleakly in December past year about his chances of a return, the American was far more upbeat about his chances of appearing in a professional competition again.

Former world number one Tiger Woods offered another update on his recovery from back surgery on Wednesday.
“My son Charlie and I compete in just about everything and have three-hole chipping contests”.
But Woods couldn’t be happier for Crozier in a moment the 11-year-old, Tiger himself, the crowd and everyone who sees this clip on YouTube will never forget.
“I have a lot of work ahead of me”, he said, noting that he also has been hitting 9-iron shots.
His new short course at the Bluejack National project is called “The Playground” and he had some junior golfers take some swings- including 11-year-old Taylor Crozier who, promptly, did this. Absolutely. I would love to play [at the Masters].
‘I couldn’t play with my kids; I wasn’t able to throw and play catch with my son. Can I do them now? “And every time – I can’t count how many times he said effort and mindset and everything, had to do a lot with the mind”.
“The one thing I do know is I am progressing, I’m getting better”.
“From there, the last piece, the biggest piece for me is to not get in my way”. “This is a different injury than I’ve had in the past. I think what he’s done to grow the game is fantastic and hopefully he’ll be able to get healthy and get back on the tour”, she added.
“That part has been probably the most frustrating part, because there is no exact timetable”, he said.
“I can’t say I’m playing next week or I’m playing Houston”.
“I feel like it’s something I’m going to stick with regardless of what the outcome is tomorrow or this week or next week”, he said. In four starts here, his best finish is a tie for 20th and he tied for 31st a year ago.
