Posted on his Twitter feed, which boasts 6.27 millon followers, Woods simply captioned the video “Smooth iron shots” with no other information.
The slow-motion footage shows the former World Number One at an unknown golf course taking a full swing with what appears to be a mid-iron.
At last week’s Presidents Cup Woods was asked several questions about his progression towards a comeback to tournament golf but refused to be drawn on a timeline.

“My timetable is based on what my surgeon said,” he told a press conference before the matches began.
“As I alluded to last week, I'm hitting 60-yard shots. I've been out of the game for a while. “First thing's first: Get my health organised. Make sure the pain goes away. Then, basically, just as I said, just keep waiting for what my surgeon says.
“I've given you guys the updates on what I can do as I progress, and that's all I'm doing.”
Woods said during the interview he was working hard but having only hit short shots wasn’t sure how his body would stand up to the rigours of a full swing.
“I'm still training. I'm getting stronger,” he said at Liberty National.
“But I certainly don't have my golf muscles trained because obviously I'm not doing anything golf related.
“I'm very optimistic. Like I said, the pain's gone, but I don't know what my golfing body is going to be like, because I haven't hit a golf shot yet.“So that's going to take time to figure that out and figure out what my capabilities are going forward, and there's no rush.”
Asked if he could see a scenario where he didn’t return to competitive golf Woods was coy though seemed to acknowledge it was a possibility.“Yeah, definitely,” he said. “I don't know what my future holds for me. As I've told you guys, I'm hitting 60-yard shots.”
The release of this video suggests that, having moved on from short pitches, Woods may yet be contemplating a comeback.
