-4 Tiger Watch

And now some more speculation on Tiger's return, this time from caddy Steve Williams:

Caddie: Tiger a couple weeks from returning

Signs are still pointing to The Accenture Match Play as a possible return next week, but if he's having issues walking still I'd say he postpones one more week.

It's not that the match play is a grind, but it is 3 more rounds of golf than the usual 72-hole tournament, if a player were to reach the finals.

Looking ahead, then, if Tiger were not to play next week it's likely his first start would be on March 5 at the Honda Classic. That would give him a tune-up for the following week's World Golf Championships at Doral, which he covets almost as much as majors.

If he makes those two starts, then he can take a couple of weeks off before playing in Arnold's tournament at Bay Hill, then get some rest again before heading to Augusta. Three tournaments seems an ample preparation for Tiger to get ready for The Masters.
