• Billy Horschel wants to see Tiger back to 'kick our ass'
• Woods hasn't played since Wyndham Championship in August
• Jack Nicklaus also thinks 14-time major winner is looking well


Billy Horschel said he wants to see Tiger Woods back ‘kicking ass’ after he saw promising signs of the 14-time major winner at the US Ryder Cup meeting last Thursday.

The 2014 FedEx Cup champion Horschel has witnessed first hand some of Woods’ struggles since the start of 2015, with the pair in the same group when Woods walked off at the Farmers Insurance Open last February.

But looking forward, Horschel was impressed with how Woods appeared at Jack Nicklaus’ house and is desperate to see him back out performing successfully on the course again soon.

“Tiger looked great,” he said in an interview with ESPN. “Looked in great shape. I saw him in the Bahamas at the Hero World Challenge and he was in rough shape, and he said that. Last night he looked really good.

“Mentally, he's in the same spot he was in December in the sense he's at peace with everything. But physically he's in a lot better shape and that's what he told me. He said he's excited to be progressing and hopefully he'll get back out here and kick our ass.”

Jack Nicklaus agreed, adding that he thought Woods looked well, which followed up the video the 40-year-old posted on Twitter with the caption ‘Progressing nicely’, in response to social media rumours that his recovery from injury had faltered.
