Golfing World News: April 24

Published Add your comment

We start with Tiger Woods, who according to his agent Mark Steinberg, has begun “light” chipping and putting again after his back surgery.

Steinberg said he expected Tiger - who missed out on playing the Masters for the first time in his career two weeks ago – to be back to competitive play by this “summer”, but couldn’t be more specific.

To Shenzhen, and the first round of the Volvo China Open now where Alvaro Quiros and Simon Dyson share the first round lead after carding rounds of 67.

The pair are a shot clear of a chasing pack that includes rookies Tyrell Hatton and Adrian Otaegui.

Ian Poulter is in touching distance, one stroke further back.

Poults was not only showing his skills on the golf course in China but it turns out he’s a pretty mean table tennis player as well.

Captured by defending champion Brett Rumford, this Instagram video shows Poults is quite the dab hand on the ping pong table.

Away from the course now where there was some friendly rivalry in the Garcia household.

Sergio, a keen Real Madrid supporter, saw his team take on Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals last night - which just happens to be the team his girfriend supports.

It was Sergio who was happiest at full-time as they edged it 1-0 but the two will be doing it all again for next week’s second leg.

Well that’s all for today, you can find us on Twitter @Golfingworldtv and we’re also on Facebook and Instagram. Bye for now.
