Struggling Woods hits the drink at charity event

<p>Questions over whether Tiger Woods is ready for a return to the <span class="caps">PGA</span> Tour were sort of answered by the American this week during a charity event at Congressional Country Club in Maryland.</p> <p>The 14-time major winner hit three successive balls into the water hazard on a 93-metre hole.</p> <p>The 40-year old hasn’t played since August as he recovers from back surgery and the rust looked still firmly attached to his clubs.</p> <p>Before his slightly embarrassing shots Woods said: “I want to play. Trust me, I want to. Now, whether I can or not, it’s a different story. And if I could tell you, I would, but I can’t, not yet. I’m still working, I’m still trying to get stronger, and still need to try and recover.”</p> <p>His first two shots went directly into the water while his third went closer only to roll back into the drink.</p> <p>Despite these cringe-worthy moments, Woods still remains a major draw for supporters at tournaments and lovers of the game can only wish arguably the finest ever golfer the grace the fairways a speedy return to form.</p>
