Tiger Woods unsure about playing future in golf

But it's still a far cry from preparing for a return to competition ― something Woods said is "definitely" far from certain.

The gaggle of assistant captains filed into the interview room, first the worldwide contingent and then the Americans.

The 41-year-old has had multiple back operations in recent years and withdrew from his last tournament in January with back spasms.

In April, Woods had fusion surgery on his back (his fourth back procedure) and in May, he was roused from a drug-induced stupor after he was found by police asleep behind the wheel of his running auto on the side of the road.

He said in his blog on May 24 that surgery brought instant nerve relief. The following month he pronounced himself pain free, but in May he was arrested on a DUI charge. Three weeks later, he entered a treatment center.

Daniel Berger, a Presidents Cup rookie, said: "He has really been into the role of assistant captain".

Once again, he'll be expected to deliver a few points for the global team but this time, he's ready and motivated even if the odds seem to favour another American win.

"There were times when..."

"Do I necessarily think it's the right time to do it? No".

"I played with Phil in a U.S. Open at Bethpage (also in New Jersey), and it's incredible how much support he gets from those people", Stricker said of NY area sports fans. "Driving a vehicle still hurt. But that's all gone now, which is fantastic".

"So that's going to take time to figure that out and to figure out what my capabilities are going forward ― and there's no rush". For now, he is working out six days a week, "alternating between the treadmill, bike riding, swimming and lifting twice a day". While he won't hit one shot this week, he said he'll have a blast.

Being here is part of his personal healing, as well as a huge lift to young players who, as fellow assistant captain Jim Furyk said, "grew up idolizing him" and possibly chose pro golf because of him. "If you look to what's going to happen on Thursday, to have both sides of the aisle represented on the first hole, to me that's representative and reflective of this event".

Fifa to lift the ban on poppies on football shirts
Mrs May said there was a "clear message" from the House of Commons that "we want our players to be able to wear those poppies". The ensuing row drew criticism from the Prime Minister, with Theresa May calling Fifa's stance " utterly outrageous ".

"I don't think there's ever going to be a situation where I don't recognize the national anthem".

The pain has gone, he said.

"First things first. Just keep waiting for what the surgeon says". My muscle tone is coming back, but I'm not in golf shape yet. I'm very passionate about the flag and what it stands for. He's also as uncertain as ever.

I didn't know if I was going to be able to be here, because I couldn't ride in a cart, he said.

"You can give the fans what they want on a Sunday".

Monahan had said the reason for moving away from Doral was related to finding a title sponsor, not politics, and he doesn't consider a Trump appearance at Liberty National anything but a golf event. So someone prefaced a question with "if you got your body 100 percent to what it was in your 20s", which left Woods, who is not in his 20s, rightly incredulous.

He turns 42 at the end of the year.

TIGER WOODS has admitted he may never be able to return to competitive golf.

And he's loving every minute of it.

The fifth and final foursomes match on Thursday sees a pair of Aussies, Jason Day, the world number seven, and Marc Leishman, victor of the BMW Championship. But their chances to compete against him have been scant, meaning opportunities like the one presented this week to bend his ear and receive insight are akin to a rare commodity.

Ty Voltaw, the former LPGA commissioner and executive vice president of global business affairs for the PGA Tour, introduced Mallon, who had 18 career LPGA Tour victories and four major championships. But it's insane. To be that good for that long and to have the reputation that he does, being that much of a leader, a role model in the team rooms ... "It's a two-way street". But if history is any guide Tiger Woods is unlikely to comment in great detail on much of anything this week.
