Now that the initial shock of watching Tiger Woods swing a golf club "in public" for the first time in six months has worn off, attention has turned to the swing itself.
"It’s hard to say. Again, none of us know the extent of his recovery, [or] what’s going on with him, as secretive as he’s been about so many different parts of his health. None of us can say," Chamblee said.
"But I can say that looks like an injured and a put-back-together 40-year-old man. He has a very short, quick golf swing. He doesn’t look like he’s ready for tournament play."
There remains no official timetable for a Woods return, and the idea that Woods could miss an entire year seems at least possible.
Asked about his thoughts on a potential return to competitive play for Tiger, Chamblee added:
“He’s been down the road of coming back from injury many, many times already, since 2010. I think, reading between the lines, he’s more inclined to take the year off. Well, actually, seeing the golf swing makes you think perhaps not. But I do believe we’re going to see when he does come back, he’ll be as prepared as he’s ever been post-surgery, post-injury, I think."
