Tiger Woods continues to work on his golf game in the wake of his return from rehabilitation following his DUI arrest in May.

On Sunday, the 14-time major champion posted a video of him hitting his driver, with the caption “Making Progress.” It followed a 7 October post that touted “Smooth Iron Shots” and a 31 August post that read: “Dr. gave me the ok to start pitching.”

The video clip shows Woods in his customary Sunday red shirt, with black shorts.

Woods, who was arrested in May for driving under the influence and in early July announced he had completed an in-patient programme that will help him manage his pain medications and sleep issues, still hasn’t set a timeline for his possible return to the game.

He last played in February, in the Dubai Desert Classic. Once the long-time number one player in the world, Woods has played three times in two years thanks to a series of debilitating injuries that required surgery.

On April 19, he underwent fusion surgery on his back – the fourth time he’s had surgery on his back in three years.

At 41, he admitted a couple weeks ago at the Presidents Cup, where he served as one of the assistant captains, that he “definitely” could see a scenario where he may not return to competitive golf.
