Tiger Woods remains focused on long-term future

Tiger Woods is thinking about the next "10 or 15 years" as he recovers from back surgery, according to his agent.

The agent of Tiger Woods has insisted that the world number one will not be rushing back to the course after being forced to undergo surgery on his back.

Woods missed The Masters earlier this month due to a pinched nerve in his back, but his representative Mark Steinberg has revealed that the 38-year-old is not ready to set a date for a competitive return.

"He's getting to the point of light chipping and putting and the doctors and trainers seem to be pleased with where he is," Steinberg told ESPN.

"I've seen a very responsible approach (from Woods) to getting back. This is about the next 10 or 15 years, this is not about the next 10 weeks.

"This is not about targeting any specific tournament. If he needs to wait one or two or three extra weeks he will."

Woods has played in just four tournaments this year.
