- Tiger Woods, who tantalized fans with a Twitter video of himself hitting a driver on Sunday, has been cleared by doctors to resume full golf activities, ESPN reported on Monday. The 14-time major champion hasn't played since February, and has played just three times in two years because of back injuries. At the Presidents Cup two weeks ago, Woods acknowledged that he didn't know if he would ever return to competitive golf but posted a video of himself hitting his driver with the caption "Making Progress". ESPN quoted the former world number one's agent saying Woods had received a "nice report" in the wake of a medical check-up last week and had been cleared to "do as much as he needs to do".
