Woods reports false - agent


Tiger Woods' agent has denied reports that the 14-time major winner has suffered a setback in his recovery from back surgery.

The former world number one underwent a third back operation in less than two years in October and two months later he revealed that he had yet to begin rehabilitation, while admitting he had 'nothing to look forward to'.

There has been no official update on Woods' condition since early December but in recent days a number of reports on Twitter have suggested that he has suffered a setback and is unable to walk for long periods of time.

Woods' agent Mark Steinberg has hit back at the reports and has branded them as 'absolutely false'.

"The tweets that appeared this weekend about Tiger's health are ridiculous and absolutely false," Steinberg said in a statement.

"It's reprehensible that every few months someone makes something up and it's treated like a real story. Tiger continues to work on his rehabilitation and we will have an accurate update at the appropriate time."

His last major win came at the US Open in 2008 and his 10th in the Wyndham Championship in August was his best finish on the PGA Tour for nearly two years.
