This morning, Tiger Woods posted a simple video showing him swinging a golf club on a virtual trainer, knocking the ball right down the middle of the fairway.

Pretty simple stuff, but to those hoping for Woods's eventual return to the PGA Tour, it was concrete evidence that the winner of 14 major tournaments is moving in the right direction. Woods has been away from the game since August, rehabbing from back surgery. Recent reports painted a bleak picture of his future.
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

Obviously, Woods wanted to put those rumors to rest. No doubt he still has a way to go before he can compete in major tournaments again, but it's great to see that he hasn't appeared to suffer any major setbacks during his rehab.
