WATCH: Tiger Woods returns to the range at Pebble Beach as fans assess his form
Tiger Woods has sparked speculation that he might be about to launch his latest return to golf after dropping a video from the range at Pebble Beach.
Woods hasn’t featured in tournament play since he withdrew from the Masters earlier in 2023 with injury concerns.
He had made a record-tying 23rd consecutive cut at Augusta National but didn’t play on the weekend.
After announcing his withdrawal, Wood clarified that the plantar fasciitis condition was behind his decision to withdraw as he suffered from severe heel pain.
Woods underwent subtalar fusion surgery to address the injury with the hope of making another return to the PGA Tour.
Woods was seen playing holes with his son, Charlie, at the Hay, a course he created, this past weekend as part of the TGR Jr Invitational hosted at the Hay and the Links at Spanish Bay on the Pebble Beach property.

In no small shock, Woods has sparked plenty of analysis by dropping the videos, but some feel he is still a way off a comeback.
“Look closely at Tiger’s right leg. Seems like he’s struggling to get his weight off his trail side, which is why you can spot his right leg buckling slightly on the way through. (this is not a criticism, btw, just an observation),” Golf Digest’s Luke Kerr-Dineen wrote on X formerly Twitter.
“This is, of course, to be expected based on all he’s been through. Tiger himself has talked about this being an ongoing issue in his swing. One thing that remains true: Tiger is Tiger. No matter what he’s working with, you can’t ever count him out.”
Woods is set to host the Hero World Challenge in December and it has been speculated that he could tee it up at the event.
As for Woods himself, he hasn’t spoken publicly since he was added to the PGA Tour’s policy board in August.
“I am honored to represent the players of the PGA Tour,” Woods said.
“This is a critical point for the Tour, and the players will do their best to make certain that any changes that are made in Tour operations are in the best interest of all Tour stakeholders, including fans, sponsors and players.
“The players thank Commissioner [Jay] Monahan for agreeing to address our concerns, and we look forward to being at the table with him to make the right decisions for the future of the game that we all love. He has my confidence moving forward with these changes.”
