Tiger Woods Almost Ready to Return To Tour But Waiting for Baby No. 2

February 4, 2009

(ChattahBox) — There is not an exact time table for Tiger Woods’ return to competitive golf, as he continues to rehab from his ACL surgery in June 08 and two associated stress fractures to his leg.  But Tiger has progressed to swinging his long irons and driver and playing a few practice holes, to celebrate the new year.

But the big event Woods, 33, is first waiting for before making his return to the tour hinges on the birth of his second child with wife Elin Nordegren.

“A lot depends on the baby, which is due pretty soon,” Woods, who admits to going “full-bore” in practice sessions, writes on his Web site. “That takes precedent over anything I do golf-wise.”

“Elin, [daughter] Sam and I are very excited for the new baby to arrive, although that’s when the real lack of sleep begins. But I must admit, I am also excited about returning to competition,” he says. “Early on, I didn’t miss golf because I enjoyed staying home with Elin and Sam and I knew I wasn’t physically able to play.”

He adds: “I’m taking it tournament to tournament. With our new addition, it’s going to be a hectic spring.”

Meanwhile, he’s also trying to squeeze in a round with Barack Obama!

The pair made tentative plans when Woods spoke at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., as part of a pre-inauguration ceremony, but set no date as both are a bit busy right now.
