Tiger Woods admits he misses playing golf as he continues to make his recovery from injury.

The 14-time major winner missed the US Open and the Masters and has yet to confirm when he’ll make his comeback.

“That’s one of the things- I’m sore. And it’s about trying to recover for the next day and I just need to get I guess in more golf shape, just try to hit more golf balls and things of that nature. So I’m still working on it. I’m still progressing, so far.

“I just wish I could be here and play and be out here and get it going again. I just miss playing,” he said.

Earlier this month,  Woods ruled himself out of the U.S. Open at Oakmont and the Quicken Loans event he hosts to benefit his foundation.

Woods has not played since undergoing microdiscectomy back surgery last September.

“While I continue to work hard on getting healthy, I am not physically ready to play in this year’s U.S. Open and the Quicken Loans National,” Woods announced on his website.

“I am making progress, but I’m not yet ready for tournament competition.”

Woods said he would host and attend the Quicken Loans National at Congressional the week following the US Open held outside of Pittsburgh.

“It’s the 10th year of our tournament, and we continue to support the community, the military and the programs of the Tiger Woods Foundation,” he said.
