Woods back on the course in a cart, un­cer­tain about fu­ture

Ripon Bulletin - - Sports -

JER­SEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Tiger Woods made it back from his fourth surgery in time for the Pres­i­dents Cup. Just not to play. Not even Woods knows when or even if he can re­turn. He even ac­knowl­edged Wed­nes­day a sce­nario that he doesn’t re­turn to com­pe­ti­tion be­cause he’s at a stage where he’s only hit­ting 60-yard shots.

This was all about driv­ing a cart as an as­sis­tant cap­tain at Lib­erty Na­tional.

Woods is back on a golf course for the first time since the Dubai Desert Clas­sic, where he shot 77 in the first round and with­drew the next day cit­ing back spasms. He had fu­sion surgery on his back in April, and he had rea­son to won­der if he would be able to join the U.S. team in this ca­pac­ity.

He said in his blog May 24 that surgery brought in­stant nerve re­lief. Five days later, how­ever, he was ar­rested on a DUI charge when Florida po­lice found him asleep be­hind the wheel of a run­ning car that was parked awk­wardly on the side of the road with a blinker flash­ing.
