Tiger Ready to Bid Farewell to 2008

Tiger Woods is up and around, ready to say goodbye to a difficult last half of 2008 when his knee injury forced him off the course for the first time.

Tiger's absence hurt the PGA Tour a little, but the anticipation surrounding his return should make up for it.  Woods has been busy doing some promotional work and he also sat down for a news conference where he addressed the injury and his future.

It's not likely he'll be 100% for a couple of years and it will be interesting to see if he has any trouble getting his torque back when he does tee it up for the first time.

In the meantime, he's spending time...as a caddy? Yup. Tiger donned the vest as part of a Buick sweepstakes won by a shell-shocked man who got the services of the world's best player.
