Tiger Woods had a circular stick in his hand in Southern California again Tuesday and waggled it confidently as he stood over a golf course.
It is not what you think. Tiger is not back, not quite yet.
The knee injury that will be forever etched in our memory as the focal point of his courageous and dramatic playoff victory on that Monday in June at Torrey Pines is still healing. He said his timetable for returning to the PGA Tour is still uncertain. He had surgery shortly after the U.S. Open.
“I can walk, the knee is good, we are right on schedule,” he said. “There is no pain, and the work is on strength and mobility.”
Well, no pain until the daily rehabilitation begins.
