Tiger will practice until Honda Classic
By Torleif Sorenson on 2/12/15

Since Tiger Woods suffered his latest injury (above) on February 5 in San Diego, social media has been all atwitter with speculation about when — or even if — Tiger would return to the PGA Tour.

Yesterday, Woods posted his thoughts on his web site:

The last two weeks have been very disappointing to me, especially Torrey, because I never want to withdraw. Unfortunately, lately injuries have made that happen too often.

This latest injury is not related to my previous surgery. I am having daily physical therapy and I am feeling better every day.

Right now, I need a lot of work on my game, and to still spend time with the people that are important to me. My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like I've said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I'm ready, I'll be back. Next week I will practice at Medalist and at home getting ready for the rest of the year. I am committed to getting back to the pinnacle of my game. I'd like to play The Honda Classic -- it's a tournament in my hometown and it's important to me -- but I won't be there unless my game is tournament-ready. That's not fair to anyone. I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon.

I want to thank the fans in Phoenix and San Diego. They were amazing. I greatly appreciate everyone's support.
The potential problem is that if Tiger does not play the Honda Classic, he will not be eligible to play in the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral one week later.

How much have Tiger's back injuries affected his overall game? For starters, Woods is now ranked 62nd in the Official World Golf Ranking — his lowest ranking ever since he turned professional in 1996.
