Tiger reports he’s “progressing nicely” (*Update)
By Stephanie Wei under Tiger Woods

Following two unsourced reports on social media that Tiger Woods’ condition was “worsening” and that he couldn’t even sit in a car seat without it reclined, the injured golfer’s agent Mark Steinberg responded vehemently denying the speculation over his client’s condition. (No, guys, he doesn’t quite need a wheelchair yet.)

On Wednesday morning Woods tweeted a video of him swinging an iron on his swing simulator.

According to ESPN.com’s Bob Harig, the club was a 9-iron and the video was taken just before 9 this morning. In related news, I think my swing speed is higher than the one Tiger took above. 

Steinberg also had an optimistic outlook and wanted to repudiate any claims that his client was done (even if he is).

Also, thanks to a picture Tony Finau tweeted on Tuesday evening, we know Tiger can *stand* on his own two feet!

Woods is obviously not in the field at this week’s Honda Classic right down the road from his home in Jupiter, FL. There is no timetable for his return. Woods endured his third back procedure in 18 months this past fall.


 

Update: Rory McIlroy poked some fun at his ailing buddy.
