On Monday at the Quicken Loans National media day, Tiger Woods echoed what he’s been saying for quite a while now: There’s still no timetable for his return. He did say that he’s "been practicing at home and progressing nicely," but the swings he made on the tee box say otherwise.

"Boy, I’m stiff," he said after hitting the first ball into the hazard. "That’s in the water."
Woods’ swing actually looks better than it has recently, but that’s probably because he’s hitting a short wedge shot from just over 100 yards away. But is he really this far from a comeback? He certainly can’t play and have success on tour if he can’t hit a green with a wedge, let alone avoid the water with three shots.
