NASSAU, Bahamas – Another sign of progress.

As the last groups teed off in Saturday’s third round of the Hero World Challenge, the biggest name in golf headed to the range.

Tiger Woods, recovering from a horrific single-car rollover accident last February, hit balls on the back of the practice ground at Albany Golf Club for the third time this week.

Earlier in the week, a video showed the 15-time major winner hitting metal woods. On Friday, he hit wedges. On Saturday, he was hitting driver.

Woods, wearing a protective sleeve on his damaged right leg, took his time between swings. His swings were smooth and there were no signs of pain after every one of his swings.

The tournament host is expected to announce next week whether he will play in the PNC Championship alongside his son, Charlie, who stole the show last year. Woods would be allowed to use a cart.
