Tiger Woods is taking full swings, could he play British Open?
Tiger Woods is back at it in Florida which is great news for the golf world.
According to Tim Rosaforte of Golf Channel, Tiger Woods is taking full swings with the golf club again -- including his driver.
When agent Mark Steinberg was pressed on the matter, he confessed that Woods had been swinging a little bit, according to Bob Harig of ESPN.
"Tiger is making continual progress," Steinberg said. "He feels better each day and is extending his swing as he progresses."
With the British Open still five weeks away it sounds like Woods might be ready in time.
I've said all along that I'd be surprised if he played that tournament, thinking he'd opt for a more comfortable venue (like the Bridgestone Invitational) but now I think I'd be surprised if he missed it.
Woods isn't one to skip out on majors if he can give them a go and he won at Royal Liverpool back in 2006.
Either way, the sport could use him as US Open ratings were down by almost 50 percent from last season.
Woods is the 7-1 favorite to win the British Open.
