Woods: I haven’t set a date

Despite the hype, Tiger Woods insists he is yet to set a date for his professional return to the golf course.

 

The former world number one has been making headlines the world over after it was revealed that he signed up for the US Open, which tees off at Oakmont in June.

Woods' road to recovery has been well documented of late, with his latest appearance being at Bluejack National Golf Club.

"I haven't set any date to when I'm playing again, which is frustrating to say," the 40-year-old told ESPN.

"But to be honest with you, that's what I've had to do. I've had to go with that mindset.

"Would I have said that five months ago? No way. I couldn't imagine then feeling like I do right now. Keep improving. Keep getting better. Keep making progress. And I'm doing that."

ESPN reported that the 14-time major winner played a casual five holes with friend Miark O'Meara at Bluejack before calling it a day.

"I'm definitely a little tired but I feel pretty good," quipped Woods afterward. 

"I haven't been out here playing like this. I hadn't played any holes until today. I know people have said I've played holes back at Medalist, but I haven't. This is actually the first time I've played holes since Wyndham. It's been awhile."
