Tiger Woods who is a US vice captain at this week's Presidents Cup has admitted he may never play golf again following

Fourteen-time major champion Tiger Woods has said he may never play competitive golf again.

The 41-year old Woods is now recovering from his back surgery months ago but wrote on his website that he is slowly easing back to physical activities.

He added: "Overall, I'm very optimistic how I'm progressing".

This was all about driving a cart as an assistant captain at Liberty National.

Woods still holds the record for most matches won in Presidents Cup history, with 24, one ahead of Phil Mickelson, who could pass him this week.

Woods is back on a golf course for the first time since the Dubai Desert Classic, where he shot 77 in the first round and withdrew the next day citing back spasms.

"There were times when I didn't know if I was going to be able to be here, because I couldn't ride in a cart".

"I don't know what my future holds for me", he said on Wednesday on the eve of the Presidents Cup when asked whether there was a scenario that would not allow him to compete again. "Seriously? Exactly. As I've told you guys, I'm hitting 60-yard shots". "The bouncing just hurt too much", he said.

"So, that's going to take time to figure that out and to figure out what my capabilities are going forward - and there's no rush". So that's all gone now, which is fantastic. The following month he pronounced himself pain free, but in May he was arrested on a DUI charge.

"Tiger is good for the game of golf", Johnson said.

"I don't know what my future holds for me", he admitted during a press conference at the Presidents Cup where he's serving as a captain's assistant for the USA team.

"First things first. Just keep waiting for what the surgeon says".

"Is anybody in here who is in their 40s ever going to feel like they did in their 20s?" he said.

Woods is at the Presidents Cup this week as an assistant to captain Steve Stricker, along with Fred Couples, Davis Love and Jim Furyk. "We've made great strides over the years, but we've got a ways to go ... but this week, I'm just so proud to represent the United States, to play for my country, to play for my teammates and participate in this great event".

"Obviously there's a lot of unrest right now, whether it's political or racial", said the 41-year-old.
