WOODS, who turns 40 on December 30, appeared before the media on the eve of the HERO WORLD CHALLENGE, the 18-man tournament hosted by his foundation, to announce he does not have a timescale for his return leading to speculation that his glittering career may be coming to an end, but he has received words of support from world number three MCILROY.

 The former world number one now ranked down at 400 said he is taking  things day by day and week by week and time by time.
