A week after he posted a video on social media showing him practing in a simulator, Tiger Woods added an update Wednesday to his website.
WOODS WORKING?: Tiger posts video of him practicing
In it, Woods states "there is no timetable on my return to competitive golf." He also wrote that he and son Charlie have three-hole chipping contests, with the loser having to do push-ups. However, Tiger didn't comment on how many times he's been on the short end of those games, only that his "short game feels pretty sharp."
Here's the full transcript of what Woods wrote:
As I announced last week, I am starting to feel a lot better. I have been chipping and putting at home, and recently started hitting 9 irons. That's been so nice. After all, Florida is the Sunshine State.
My son Charlie and I compete in just about everything and have three-hole chipping contests. The loser has to do push-ups. My short game feels pretty sharp.
The big thing right now is trying to get stronger and more flexible. Sitting out as long as I did, some weakening occurred, and I have a lot of work ahead of me.
FANS HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN: Tiger Woods remains relevant
While there is no timetable on my return to competitive golf, I want to play this game at the highest level again. In order to do that, I have to get healthy.
I've received many nice calls and texts from my fellow PGA TOUR players and want to thank them for their support and encouragement. It's a fraternity out there, and we're all in this together.
Today, I am excited to be outside Houston to host a special member day for the official opening of The Playgrounds and The Place at Bluejack National. The Playgrounds is a 10-hole short course where the focus is on fun and family. The vision is to attract multi-generations to promote socializing with family and friends and introduce new players to the game. Players can practice there too, and it challenges golfers of all skill levels to learn to hit a variety of shots.
We will also celebrate the opening of The Place, just the third Nike Performance Center in the world. I'm grateful to Nike for its support.
The front nine at Bluejack National is now open, and I am very appreciative for the nice reviews. I couldn't be more proud of how it is turning out. The back nine is scheduled to open in late April.
That's all for now. As always, thanks so much for your great support. Without a doubt, I have the best fans in the world.

When it comes down to making otherworldly shots from behind the 3-point arc, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is unmatched. Plus, he's a pretty big fan of golf -- as evidenced by his off-day trip to Augusta National Golf Club last month.
THREE-POINT MASTER: Curry calls Augusta round 'a real treat'
But let's see Curry do what Matt Kuchar was able to pull off for charity Tuesday night during a break in the Miami Heat's game against the Utah Jazz. With a wedge and a wiffle golf ball from half-court, Kuchar finds nothing but net in this video courtesy of the Fox Sports Heat broadcast:
Pro golfer Matt Kuchar is MONEY from half court.

Lucky shot? Not according to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press. Kuchar repeated his $5,000 performance shortly thereafter.
Matt Kuchar just made two 47-foot chips during the first-quarter intermission. $10,000 for charity.

What's next? Kuchar vs. Curry in a golf game of HORSE?
Justin Thomas must have been saving up some greenside magic as his round got under way Sunday.
After going par-par to start, he missed the green on his second at the par-5 third.
Never fear. These guys are professionals. As they like to remind us with shots like these.

The eagle took him to 6-under for the tournament.
But back-to-back bogeys on the next two holes put him back to 4-under.
