As I announced last week, I am starting to feel a lot better. I have been chipping and putting at home, and recently started hitting 9 irons. That’s been so nice. After all, Florida is the Sunshine State.
My son Charlie and I compete in just about everything and have three-hole chipping contests. The loser has to do push-ups. My short game feels pretty sharp.
The big thing right now is trying to get stronger and more flexible. Sitting out as long as I did, some weakening occurred, and I have a lot of work ahead of me.

MONTGOMERY, Texas (Golf Canada with files from the Associated Press) — An 11-year-old from Texas had a day he’ll never forget on the golf course... and it happened with Tiger Woods watching.
Woods was on hand for the opening of The Playgrounds at Bluejack National, which he helped design.
Taylor Crozier stepped up to the first tee and knocked in the inaugural shot on the 81-yard, par 3. The crowd went wild.

DORAL, Florida (Tim Reynolds/AP) — Tiger Woods says he continues to feel better, though the 14-time major champion remains unsure when he can return to competitive golf.
Woods released a statement saying he has been chipping and putting at home in Florida as his recovery from back surgeries progresses, and that he and his son, Charlie, are competing in three-hole chipping contests.
“The loser has to do pushups,” Woods wrote on his website (http://bit.ly/1TnXvp6). “My short game feels pretty sharp.”

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (AP) — Adam Scott knew the only way for him to remain relevant was to win golf tournaments.
Tiger Woods has it far easier. All he had to do was hit one shot in a simulator.
The Honda Classic did not lack for activity, even without the beer-drinking bozos leaning over the railing of grandstands on the 17th hole to shout at Sergio Garcia that the Spaniard should “go back to the European Tour” and at Adam Scott to put “two more (balls) in the water.”
It started with Jack Nicklaus hosting nearly two dozen potential Ryder Cup players for dinner, a treat for anyone among the top 40 in the U.S. standings. He said he talked about how to prepare for big events, though it was not clear what else could be gleaned from the night except to hang out with golf’s greatest champion.
“I can’t imagine how them coming over to have dinner at an old man’s house is going to help any,” Nicklaus said.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods posted a video of him swinging a 9-iron in a golf simulator to shoot down rumors on social media that suggested his recovery from back surgeries had worsened to the point he could not even sit in a chair.
The 13-second video Woods posted on Twitter shows him dressed in shorts and golf shoes, and he takes a smooth swing on a golf simulator.
“Progressing nicely,” Woods wrote.
The video (http://bit.ly/1oHi2If) had a time stamp of February 25, 2016.
