Mark Steinberg of Excel Sports Management said on Monday the rumours were ridiculous.

The video has a time stamp of today. It shows Woods, in shorts and golf shoes, taking one smooth swing accompanied by the words, “Progressing nicely.”

The rumours began with a Twitter account called “Secret Tour Pro” saying Sunday that Woods could no longer sit in a chair and spends most of the day lying down.

Steinberg says there’s still no timetable for his return.

Woods has had three back surgeries in roughly 18 months.
