Tiger Woods: Reports of Golfer Having Setback in Surgery Recovery Are ‘Absolutely False,’ Agent Says
“The tweets that appeared this weekend about Tiger’s health are ridiculous and absolutely false. It’s reprehensible that every few months someone makes something up and it’s treated like a real story,” Steinberg said in a statement. “Tiger continues to work on his rehabilitation and we will have an accurate update at the appropriate time.”
The reports Steinberg was referring to were many.
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

The 40-year-old Woods, who underwent a second microdiscectomy last September and had a follow-up procedure a month later, said in December at the Hero World Challenge that there was “no timetable” for his return.
