He's back! Or is he?
So, what did you make of Tiger Woods' announcement that he hopes to return to action in October?
The former world number one, now ranked outside the top 700, splits opinion, but it can surely only be a good thing that the 14-time Major winner is close to teeing it up competitively again after more than a year on the sidelines.
Of course, nothing is straightforward where Tiger is concerned, because at the time of writing the 40-year-old still isn't 100% certain he'll be in the field to play in the Safeway Open in California, starting on 13 October - it all just adds a little drama to the Tiger circus.
"It could be a fun fall," said Woods. "It was difficult missing tournaments that are important to me, but this time I was smart about my recovery and didn't rush it."
What we do know is that he will be at Hazeltine at the end of the month as a non-playing Ryder Cup vice-captain. We suspect once the dust has settled on events in Minnesota, Woods will let us in on a little more.
Maybe you're gearing up for your own return to action. If that's the case and your game is a little rusty, don't hesitate to speak to the team about some coaching.
Mizuno T7 Forged Wedges
These new wedges have a very small trace of Boron in the steel, which is little enough so they maintain the forged feel of last year's Mizuno S5 wedges, but enough to increase the durability of the grooves.
Features and benefits:
Grain Flow Forging maintains consistent grain for consistent feel
Boron infused with the steel significantly enhances groove durability
Grooves are quad cut to enhance spin control
Deeper and narrower grooves from 45-53° to maximise spin on full shots
