Tiger Woods is old, and depending how much stock you put into vaguely sourced Twitter reports, possibly too fucked up to play golf. But if this video Woods just posted to his Twitter account is to be believed, he is at least capable of swinging a golf club.
Tiger Woods hasn’t played in a golf tournament since August. The 40-year-old still has no timetable for his return, and his back is admittedly in depressingly bad shape. Over the weekend, a couple of tweets claimed to have details on his health, and the purported details were bleak.
A robot just pulled off the best possible move in the game of golf.
Time’s Lorne Rubenstein has a fascinating, wide-ranging interview with Tiger Woods that is really worth your time. In it, Tiger talks on coming to grips with his lost abilities, his personal relationships, and his legacy. He’s surprisingly honest throughout, never more so than with this exchange:
The Hero World Challenge golf tournament is this this week, and it’s hosted by Tiger Woods—though Woods isn’t playing, as a series of injuries limited him to just 11 starts on tour this year, culminating in a pair of back surgeries early this fall. When will Woods be back? Will Woods be back? Speaking at the…
Steve Williams served as Tiger Woods’ caddy from 1999 to 2011, during which Woods dominated the PGA Tour, won 13 of his 14 Majors, and earned over $88 million.

Tiger Woods has actually been playing pretty decently at this year's Masters, but a rotten tee shot on today's par-5 13th left him dropping the old reliable "oh my fucking God" again. We'd say the same thing if, you know, we just hurled a club like that.

Today, both the PGA Tour and Woods's agent flatly deny the…
Tiger Woods, last seen doing a very realistic impression of a terrible chipper, will take a break from tournament golf, he announced on his website.
