Woods has posted a series of videos on Twitter recently while hitting a variety of shots, including one on Sunday showing him hitting a driver under the caption "Making Progress".

"He's taking it from wedges and short irons to the longer clubs".

Steinberg, however, has reiterated there is no current timetable for Woods' return to competitive golf.

Harig noted Woods withdrew from a February tournament in Dubai, which was "just his third tournament start after more than a year away following his third back surgery in 2015".
