US golfer Tiger Woods has posted a video of himself taking a practice swing in the Arizona desert.

It is the first video Woods has posted of him swinging a club in over two months.

The 43-year-old was involved in a car accident in Florida in May, which led to reports he was under the influence of prescription drugs.

Woods was pulled from the car by officers who said he was acting “coherent” but was unresponsive to their commands.

He has not competed since February as he has undergone extensive back surgery.

It is his second hospital admission of the year after having a procedure in May to repair a herniated disc.

A couple of weeks after the accident he pulled out of a tournament in Dubai, saying he had concerns about his back after a sixth back operation in a little over a year.

“I’ve been through a lot with my back,” Woods told Golf Channel.

“I have had this many surgeries and I’m still working my way back. That’s no easy task. I am working to do it again, and when I do get to the point where I am physically able to compete, I will have a chance.”
