Tiger Woods said on his blog Monday that his recovery from microdiscectomy surgery is coming along, but he doesn't know when he'll be back.



Woods blogged on a myriad of topics from missing the Masters for the first time ([It] wasn't as hard for me as you might think) in his professional career to what clubs he's been able to use so far in his rehab process (No sand wedge, yet).

Woods said he hasn't taken a full swing yet.

"As far as taking a full swing, I have conference calls with my doctors every couple of weeks to see how my progress is and just kind of chart it out from there. Basically, you just follow a program. It's tedious because it's little rehab stuff, but you still have to do it."

Woods said he hopes to be back sometime this summer, but he "just doesn't know when." Woods said it was simple why he made the decision to have surgery for a pinched nerve in his back (the same procedure Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had done, Woods notes).

"Physically, I just couldn't make a golf swing," he said. "That pretty much sums it up."
