At a news conference yesterday in advance of the Hero World Challenge, Woods spoke pessimistically about his immediate future in the game, saying he has yet to begin rehabilitation and doesn't know when he will be able to resume full activities. "I have no answer for that and neither does my sur- geon, there is no timetable, so that's the hardest part for me. There's really nothing I can look forward to, nothing I can build towards" "It's just taking it literally day by day and week by week and time by time'' he said. "For nerves, it just depends on how the nerve heals and how it settles.'' Woods, who turns 40 later this month, appears to have confronted the possibility of his 14-major, 79-PGA Tour victory career ending. Woods declined to specif- ically put it in that manner, but he did acknowledge that any good golf from now on "is gravy'' on top of a nearly 20-year career that saw him ranked No. 1 in the world for 623 weeks. He is now at No. 400 and will continue to drop as long as he is not playing. No LigHt At tHE END oF tigErS tuNNEL ClICk hERE to watCh thE pRESS ConfEREnCE eoin clarke | golffile.ie
