Tiger Woods has still not set a specific date for his return to golf as he claims he continues to have "good days and bad days" when it comes to his back.

Woods has recently opened the first public golf course designed by his company TGR design, which will be in Missouri. It will be named Payne's Valley after famous golfer Payne Stewart who was born in Missouri.

The last time Woods featured on Tour was at the Dubai Desert Classic on February 3, where he shot a birdie free round of 77.

He skipped the next couple of tournaments, including the Masters, as he felt he wasn't ready to return to competitive action, especially after such a long lay off time.

During his absence, in the Dubai Desert Classic, Sergio Garcia went on to shoot -19 and win the tournament.

He then recorded his maiden Major victory, winning the Masters earlier this month.

He replicated Danny Willett's achievements last year by first winning the Dubai tournament and then going on to win the Masters.

Woods missed the whole of the 2015-2016 season due to ongoing back problems, a year which saw all four Majors being won by people who had yet to win a Major in their career.

With such a long time off will Woods ever fully recover?

When speaking about his back problems, Woods admitted: "The back is progressing. I have good days and bad days.

"I've had three back operations and that's just kind of the nature of the business, unfortunately. That's all I can say.

"The second shot I stiffed it."

Many people question if Woods will ever win another Major championship to add to his outstanding tally of 14, the second highest of all time behind Jack Nicklaus with 18.

With so many young, athletic, talented players at the top of their game right now, does Woods have what it takes to compete at the top once again?

He once too had the power and the athleticism of guys like Rory Mcllroy, Dustin Johnson, and Jason Day. Yet, they are all in their prime, at the peak of their game, and with Woods being 41, at least 10 years older than most of the top players in the world, does he really stand a chance?

It will be very interesting for sure when he does finally return to see how his older, and more broken body, compares and contrasts with some of the world's best ball strikers.
