As far as swinging a club, that’s not going to happen until next year. I just don’t have a choice. We simply don’t know what type of swelling there would be or if there would be any residual effects the next day once you start wheeling and dealing on the knee. Everyone’s body reacts differently. I could putt right now, but I’m not going to do it. I don’t know what the doctors are going to tell me about playing golf down the road. I’m taking it day-to-day, week-to-week. All I’m doing every day is looking forward to my next day. ***

Initially, I probably lost about 10 pounds because I wasn’t working out. All of that was muscle. I’ve put about two pounds back on, but I’m still pretty light. I’m eating mostly raw and organic foods that provide the most nutrients.

I didn’t watch much of the British Open and saw a little bit of the British Senior Open, because my friend John Cook was in contention. I watched some of the PGA Championship and want to congratulate Padraig Harrington on his wins at the British and PGA. As a two-time defending PGA champion, it was a lot more frustrating not to be competing and that hurts the most. I stayed plenty busy with my rehab and watched some of the Olympics on television. I did arrange the menu for the Champions dinner, and it was a combo of American and Swedish food. I want to thank the PGA for organizing that very special evening.***

Later this month, we’re going to launch our new video game: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09. We’ve made some exciting changes, like the new “true one-to-one golf swing,” that I really think you’re going to like. In fact, the game just recently won the Best Sports Game of E3 2008 for the Wii.

I’ve also been working with Gatorade on a new fitness drink. They have been so helpful during my rehab, trying to think of ways to expedite my recovery process. It’s been a pleasure to join forces with them.***

I will definitely watch some of the Ryder Cup Matches and will be pulling hard for the American Team. I wish I could do more than root!

That’s all for now. Enjoy the rest of your summer and I’ll talk to you soon.
