Tiger Woods is yet to announce when he will attempt his next return to competitive golf, but anticipation continues to build after the former world No. 1 offered another glimpse at his encouraging progress.
The 14-time major champion has not played since withdrawing from the Dubai Desert Classic in February.
That abortive attempt at re-joining the ranks of the game's elite prompted yet more surgery for the injury-plagued 41-year-old.
Woods, though, has posted a series of videos on Twitter showing himself hitting full iron shots and his driver in recent weeks.
On Monday he unveiled a deliberately low, punched iron shot, captioning the footage "Return of the Stinger" and adding the hashtag #starwars.
It remains to be seen if Woods' efforts in rehabilitation and the practice ground can enable him to compete again for titles on the PGA Tour, but he is undoubtedly doing a great job of generating hype among those hoping to see a giant of the modern game back among the best once again.
Last week, Woods' agent Mark Steinberg told ESPN his client had been cleared by a surgeon to resume playing without restrictions, but insisted the American would not rush his return to action.
