People want Woods back, especially at these major championships to add a bit of buzz, and with the British Open just a month away we all sit patiently waiting to hear when Woods will get back to the course.
According to Tim Rosaforte of Golf World and Golf Channel, Woods is now hitting full golf shots, something he wasn't doing the last time we heard from him, and he is doing it at his home course in Florida.
So what does this mean for Tiger Woods, not only at the British Open but also for the rest of the season? With him taking full swings now, exactly one month until the British Open begins, it might appear that he could be back for his defense of Hoylake, but I just don't see him returning to a major championship that is across the pond on grass and turf that is probably the toughest of any venue these guys play all season.
I think the Bridgestone Invitational, which kicks off July 31, is a more realistic return, as is the PGA Championship at Valhalla, which begins on Aug. 7, and I'd be surprised if he announced he is coming back for the Open.
For now, we can only sit and wait as Woods practices in private, hoping that he will announce soon when and where his return to the PGA Tour will be.
