Woods and Haney resume work at Isleworth

Yet another sign that Tiger Woods has his eyes set on a return to competition: the world No. 1 has resumed working with swing coach Hank Haney. According to sources close to the player, Haney, who has helped Woods win his last six major championships, arrived in Orlando Sunday afternoon and plans to spend the next few days working with Woods near his home at Isleworth.

A sighting of Woods and Haney working together was first reported on Golfchannel.com.
 
Whether that means Woods is on the brink of a return to the PGA Tour is another matter. While Woods resumed practicing last week, he decided to skip this week's World Golf Championship-CA Championship at Doral, and has never played next week's Transitions Championship in Palm Harbor, Fla.

Speculation has grown that Woods might play the exhibition Tavistock Cup at Isleworth March 22-23, or the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando later that week. But in his public statement last month, Woods said he didn't know when he was planning on returning to golf, and he has traditionally not committed to a tournament until the Friday before an event.
