He had a brief return the game in late 2016-early 2017, before shutting himself down for the remainder of the year due to another back surgery.

Steinberg said the 14-time major champion "got a nice report and is allowed to proceed". The videos show full shots, but three weeks ago at the Presidents Cup he said he was restricted on the amount of twisting he could do and was limited to 60-yard pitch shots.

Woods has posted a series of videos on Twitter recently while hitting a variety of shots, including one on Sunday showing him hitting a driver under the caption "Making Progress". Woods indicated the same at the Presidents Cup, where he was a US assistant captain.

Heralded as the premier golfer of his generation, the last time Woods won an event came in August 2013 at the Bridgestone Invitational.

The 41-year old Woods was an assistant captain for the U.S. team at the recent Presidents Cup where he said he had "no idea what my future holds" or whether he would return to competition.

However, Steinberg cautioned that Woods, who was arrested in May for driving under the influence of a variety of prescription drugs, would continue to take his rehab "very, very slowly". "We will see what each day brings, what each week brings".

After the October 2015 surgery, Woods went more than a year without playing competitive golf before playing at the Hero World Challenge last December.
