Still no timetable for Tiger return

Tiger Woods still has no timetable for a return to tournament golf, saying he still has ‘good days and bad days’ with his surgically repaired back.

Speaking Tuesday at the unveiling of his design for a new course in Missouri, Woods sounded resigned to the uncertainty.

“The back is progressing. I have good days and bad days,” the 14-time major champion said. “I’ve had three back operations and that’s just kind of the nature of the business, unfortunately. That’s all I can say.”

Woods, who hasn’t played since withdrawing from the Dubai Desert Classic on February 3 with ongoing back spasms, hit a couple of shots in public for the first time in months.

His first found the water.

“The second shot I stiffed it, so ...” said Woods, who briefly returned to competition in December after missing all of the 2015-16 season in the wake of back surgery.

At his first PGA Tour event after a 17-month absence, at Torrey Pines in January, he missed the cut. He then withdrew in Dubai after a first-round 77.

The project announced on Tuesday in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri will include the first public access golf courses designed by Woods’s TGR Design.

The course is slated to open in 2019 and will be named .Payne’s Valley’.
