BEIJING - Tiger Woods has told the public on Tuesday, that there is no specific "timetable" for his return to golf.

The sports star athlete has been out of the game since Aug 23, where he played at the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina.

In the span of 18 months, Woods has received two back surgeries that have kept him away from his clubs.

Woods has yet to start rehabilitation for these surgeries but recently agreed to host the Hero World Challenge at the Albany Golf Club.

It was during this competition that Woods spoke about his condition and whether he would be able to compete in future tournaments.

"Therein lies the tough question, a tough answer because I have no answer for that and neither does my surgeon or physios. There is not timetable. That's the hardest part, that's the hardest part for me. There's really nothing I can look forward to, nothing I can build towards, it's just taking it literally day by day and week by week and time by time. It's different from any of the surgeries and procedures I've had in the past.

Woods would go on to say that, he would love to compete again and that any accomplishments he can make in the future would be great!

Tiger woods sits on a thrown of accomplishments already, having 79 career victories on the PGA Tour, 14 majors titles and a record 11 times PGA Tour player of the year.
