Woods: 'Everyone thinks I'm dead'

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – The Tiger Woods proof-of-life tour continued this week when the 14-time major champ attended a dinner for U.S. Ryder Cup hopefuls at Jack Nicklaus’ house.

Woods has not been seen much since the Hero World Challenge in December, but he posed for pictures Tuesday while hosting a dinner for several Nike athletes at his The Woods Jupiter restaurant near the site of this week’s Honda Classic. The next day, he released a video of himself hitting a 9-iron into a simulator and noted that his game is “progressing nicely” as he recovers from multiple surgeries.

Thursday he was at Nicklaus’ home in North Palm Beach, Fla., for the first of multiple team-building events leading up to the biennial matches this fall. According to multiple player accounts, Woods appeared healthy and happy despite reports last week on social media that he had suffered a setback during his recovery.

“I talked to him for just a second. I said, ‘Wow, you’re standing up, you’re not dead,’” said Jimmy Walker. “He said, ‘I know, everyone thinks I’m dead now.’ I said, ‘I’m glad you’re here,’ and he said, ‘I wouldn’t miss it.’”
