- Conflicting reports surrounding Tiger’s recovery.
- The news started when journalist Robert Lusetich suggested the golfer’s back was still terrible.
None of us know what to think about the latest news surrounding Tiger’s comeback. Robert Lusetich came out and said this…
I’m told #TigerWoods condition worsened. He can’t move well; painful to sit. Sits in car with seat fully reclined. No forseeable return. Sad

lets all be honest, anybody could write this and fall back on the guise that they have an ‘unnamed’ source they need to protect. Horse shit!
On the other side we have a few big hitters in the world of golf wading into the conjecture.
“He’s making progress,” said Davis Love III. “He is starting to move like he’s human again,” added Notah Begay, the golf channel analyst and Tiger confidant.
They’re not quite finished yet, Mark Steinberg, Tiger’s agent, vehemently denied the claims:
“The tweets that appeared this weekend about Tiger’s health are ridiculous and absolutely false,” a reaction that echoed his response to the 2009 incident…Deny, deny, deny.
“It’s reprehensible that every few months someone makes something up and it’s treated like a real story. Tiger continues to work on his rehabilitation and we will have an accurate update at the appropriate time,” he added.
Obviously Tiger is entitled to his privacy, but to his adoring fans his withdrawn state is deeply worrying. He has become a Twitter ghost who hasn’t spoken about his recovery since early December.
If you’re sick of me quoting old men and want to here some ‘expert’ analysis of the situation, see below.
