Tiger Woods cleared to resume golf activities with no restrictions

Woods underwent back surgery and is heartened by the lack of pain in his body

The post prompted many to ask whether Woods was rushing back to golf after undergoing what seems like his 10th back surgery, but according to Woods's agent, Mark Steinberg, that's not the case.

Take a look at the latest video of Woods' swing, posted to his Twitter account on Sunday.

As for when Woods might make a return to competition, Steinberg would not attach a timetable.

He added: "Tiger can do as much as he needs to do". "Tiger is going to take this very, very slowly". The condition severely restricted Woods' ability to swing.

"We have not even talked about it", Steinberg said.

Woods was arrested around 2 a.m. on May 29 when officers found him unconscious in his Mercedes-Benz about 15 miles from his home in Jupiter, Fla.

He told officers he was taking the painkiller Vicodin and the anxiety medicine Xanax to deal with pain from April back surgery. Still, he remains second all-time in PGA Tour wins with 79 and has racked up 14 major victories, along with 11 PGA Tour Player of the Year honors. He teed it up at the Hero World Challenge last December before going on to miss the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in January.

The procedure was Woods' fourth back surgery since 2014, and he underwent it just a day after claiming his back was progressing.

The all-clear from the surgeon can only have emboldened 41-year-old Woods, who only a mere month ago admitted he may never play competitive golf again.
