Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Woods was asked if he can see a scenario in which he doesn’t play in a professional tournament again.

“Yeah, definitely,” he said. “I don’t know what my future holds for me.”
In a Sept. 22 post on his official website, Woods said he’s started some golf work and regular exercise activities.
“I have not taken a full swing since my back fusion surgery last April, but continue to chip and putt every day,” he wrote. “I’m working out six days a week, alternating between the treadmill, bike riding, swimming and lifting twice a day. My muscle tone is coming back, but I’m not in golf shape yet. That’s going to take time.”
What the hell man, I was really lookin forward to seeing Tiger return to action and this totally ruined by hopes of that. Tiger has screwed up in the past, there’s no doubt about that, but he’s huge for golf. Don’t get me wrong, these guys today are great to watch; DJ, Spieth, Fowler, Rory, but Tiger was the best. I guess I grew up during the Tiger era, it’s just not the same. This would have been one of the greatest comebacks to watch, his back has been toast for quite a while now and his knees are right behind, not a good anecdote for playing golf for a long time. Sad day.
