(Newser) – Tiger Woods still isn’t sure when he’ll return to the golf course, but he’s in for a busy spring either way, People reports. “I’m taking it tournament to tournament,” says Woods, recovering from knee surgery while his wife is expecting their second child. “A lot depends on the baby,” he says. “That takes precedent over anything golf-wise.”

Still, Woods says he’s going “full bore” in practice, and there’s one round he’s determined to play: hitting the course with President Obama. The two made tentative plans at the pre-inaugural ceremony at the Lincoln Memorial. “We didn’t get to talk much,” Woods explains. “I did ask him if he wanted to play golf and he said, ‘I’d love to.’ So we’ll make it happen.”
