Healthy Tiger Woods Talks About Revving Up His Golf Game

Commencing on his second comeback of the year and the fifth in the last five years, Tiger Woods is starting anew this time around.

He has new Nike equipment in his golf bag and a new Nike golf ball at the ready.He has a new swing to call upon and a new swing consultant on call.

And most importantly, he has a new back as he returns to competitive golf Thursday in the Hero World Challenge at Isleworth Golf and Country Club.

"I just now need to hit more balls, but the body is good. I don't have the sharp pain like I used to at the beginning of the year. I still have some aches and pains, just like anybody else who is my age and older.

He's also been hitting a bunch of golf balls in the backyard of his Florida compound.

Woods, who had back surgery March 31 and missed the Masters and U.S. Open, has played in just eight events this season, finishing 72 holes on just three occasions. He shut his golf game down after the PGA Championship.

And next year. Woods is optimistic about what lies ahead. A stronger back will do that for you. A love of golf yet to flame out will do that for you. And a chance to go about the golf course a different way has him looking forward instead of backward.

"I'm not quite 40 yet, not till next year, so I've still got some time."
