Over the weekend, a report surfaced about how Tiger Woods' recovery from a second back surgery in September had taken a major set back. The report explained how Woods could barely walk and how he could only ride in a car if the seat was fully reclined. Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg immediately responded by saying the report was “completely false.”
With many golfers in the Jupiter area near Woods’ home due to the Honda Classic, Woods hosted a Team Nike dinner at his restaurant. Tony Finau posted a picture of himself and Woods:
One day later, Tiger posted a video of him hitting a short iron into a golf simulator. The ball landed on the middle of the green, of course. He captioned the video: “Progressing nicely.”
It’s nice to see Tiger swinging a club without any apparent pain. This also puts to rest the absurd reports about Woods’ degrading health. Although Tiger is finally swinging a club, he still has to completely recover and then get his game up to speed. This most likely rules a Thursday morning tee time at Augusta National in early April. Hopefully we’ll see Woods at the US Open, but I wouldn’t mind waiting longer if it means Tiger is 100% healthy.
