Woods is coming off a back injury in December. He appeared on CBS on Sunday to talk about The Genesis Invitational – the tournament his foundation hosts – and shared an update on his health status.
“I’m feeling fine, I’m feeling fine. I’m a little bit stiff. I have one more MRI scheduled,” Woods said. “Still in the gym, still doing the mundane stuff that you have to do for rehab, the little things, before I can start gravitating to something more.”
Woods was apparently on the golf course on Monday, working with Dwyane Wade.
