Tiger Woods, who still has not played in a major championship for two years and is now six months removed from his fourth back surgery, admitted at a Presidents Cup press conference on Wednesday that he may never play on the PGA Tour again.

This is not the news golf fans wanted to hear after Woods recently posted an update on his web site and shared a video he posted to Instagram that had people hoping his return to the PGA Tour was a foregone conclusion.

On September 22nd, Woods had this to say on his personal blog

I’m starting to hit the ball a little further – 60-yard shots. I have not taken a full swing since my back fusion surgery last April, but continue to chip and putt every day.

The latter is paying off. Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler have been dropping by my house for putting contests. Justin also comes over to practice his chipping. It was fun to celebrate his PGA Championship win with him and Rickie, and we had a blast.

I have my six-month back X-rays coming up. Once my surgeon takes a look, he’ll give me the parameters of what I can do moving forward.

I’m working out six days a week, alternating between the treadmill, bike riding, swimming and lifting twice a day. My muscle tone is coming back, but I’m not in golf shape yet. That’s going to take time.

This is the video Woods posted on August 31st…

Dr. gave me the ok to start pitching
