The Q&A starts off with golf journalist Lorne Rubenstein asking Tiger, “Where are you right now with your recovery?” in reference to the back surgery he underwent last month. It seems like a softball question meant to get things warmed up, but Tiger’s answer is surprising. “I have just started walking,” he says. “That’s it.” That’s it?
Later, Tiger also admits that his current rehab doesn’t involve long hours in the gym or intense physical therapy. Instead, it includes walking for 10 minutes on the beach everyday. Yes, that’s it. Which is to say that Tiger is a long, long, LONG way from getting back on the golf course and that, ultimately, there’s a chance his golf career could be over. At this point, he's just not sure.
