Caddie: Tiger ‘a few weeks’ from returning

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) ” Tiger Woods is “a few weeks” away from a return to the PGA Tour and could decide within days where that return will take place, his caddie Steve Williams said today.

Williams told Television New Zealand in an exclusive interview that Woods is close to ending his long injury layoff and will return to the tour mentally stronger than before.

“It’s going to be anytime, shortly,” Williams said.

“He’s probably 95 percent of the way there. He was waiting for the birth of his second child which just came last week so he’s ready to go. He just needs a little bit more walking. He hasn’t been able to walk too well,” he added.

“Anytime in the next few weeks he’s going to tee it up. He definitely wants to play a couple of tournaments before Augusta so any day now he’s going to make a decision when he’s going to play.”

Speculation has increased over the past week that Woods would make his return at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Tucson, Arizona starting Feb. 25.
