Tiger Woods, who has not played competitively since August, looks “very healthy” last Sunday when he attended a dinner party at the home of Jack Nicklaus. Tiger Woods has won 14 major championships.
Nicklaus family hosted the gathering for United States Ryder Cup hopefuls at their Florida home on Thursday, while the players were in town for the PGA Tour Honda Classic.
“He looked very good,” the 76-year-old Nicklaus told reporters on Sunday.
“He looked very healthy and he really misses playing. So that’s good.
“He says he was feeling great, and he was able to stand over a putt and chip now without having any leg pain and so forth. We didn’t really talk a whole lot about it.”
However, Nicklaus said a return to competition was not imminent for Woods, who underwent back surgery in September and had a follow-up procedure the following month.
Recent rumours suggest that Woods had suffered a setback from his surgeries, and could not move well.
Woods responded by sending out a video that showed him smoothly swinging a nine-iron in a golf simulator.
“He doesn’t have a timetable for returning or anything,” Nicklaus said.
Tiger Woods, 40, is USA’s Ryder Cup assistant captain.
