Tiger Woods had his fifth surgery in 20 years — this time on his back — and failed to win a PGA Tour event for the third time in the last five years.


Windemere: Tiger Woods is too busy in the gym to find a new swing coach, or even swing a golf club.

Woods said on Monday that his strength has returned from "busting my butt in the gym pretty hard" and he is on schedule to resume competition in December. But he still hasn't hit a golf ball since he missed the cut at the PGA Championship on August 8, and still doesn't know when he will.

"We're pretty much past the strength phase now, and I've got my strength where I want to have it," Woods said at Isleworth Golf & Country Club, where he lived for the first 15 years of his pro career. "Now I just need to get my fast twitch going and get my speed back, and that's going to take a little bit of time. That's part of our second phase of training. And that's coming up now."
