Former Golf world No 1, Tiger Woods, could make his PGA Tour return within the next month.

Woods, 40, has been sidelined from competition since August as he continues his recovery from back surgeries, but has been shooting  up his practice routine while at home in Florida.

Some media analysts have speculated that he could make his PGA Tour return as early as the May 5-8 Wells Fargo Championship.

His caddie, Joe LaCava, spoke about his boss future comeback.

“I still have faith he’s going to continue to do well and win,” LaCava told ESPN.

“My thought is he will overcome the injury or whatever you want to call it. He might not be able to play as often as he would like. Once he’s healed from this, he’ll come back and play again and play well. My outlook is basically the same as when I started with him. He’s Tiger Woods.”

The 14 times major champion has not won a major title since 2008 US Open and his form has suffered a decline in recent years due to injuries and the mastering of a new swing.

Woods’ world ranking has plummeted to a mind-boggling 486th and earlier this month he missed the Masters for only the second time since his tournament debut in 1995.
