Tiger Woods' agent has confirmed that the 14-time major winner has been given the green light to hit a full range of golf shots.
Woods has barely played any competitive golf for two years and is still recovering from a fourth back operation in three years.
He recently admitted to doubts over whether he would ever return to the professional game and confessed that he is taking very small steps in a bid to get back to full fitness.
He was last seen in action at February's Dubai Desert Classic, where he was forced to withdraw, prompting yet more surgery.
With Woods posting a video on Twitter of himself hitting a driver with the caption "Making Progress", the Florida resident’s agent, Mark Steinberg, has backed up the post by stating that the 41-year-old's medical team are pleased with how things are going.
"He can do as much as he needs to do," Steinberg told ESPN. "He got a nice report and is allowed to proceed," Steinberg. "Tiger is going to take this very, very slowly. This is good, but he plans to do it the right way."
