PGA: Nearly three months have passed since Tiger Woods offered an update on his physical condition and there’s still no word on when he’ll play again.

Woods, who made only 11 starts last season and missed the cut three times in majors, has had back surgery three times in less than two years.

“I still have faith he’s going to continue to do well and win,” LaCava told ESPN recently. “Once he’s healed from this, he’ll come back and play again and play well.”
