It appears that while Tiger Woods’ doctors have cleared him to participate next week at the Bridgestone Invitational, he cannot go full bore yet in practice.

Golf World and Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte is reporting that Tiger is on a practice ball count, and has been doing a lot of his practice this week with Sean Foley on the short game:

Their work was cut short on Thursday by a thunderstorm but Tiger played a quick 18 holes Friday morning riding a cart at Medalist GC in Hobe Sound, Fla., Woods’ new club near his Jupiter Island home. Most of the time they spent together was on short game as Woods is listening to doctor’s orders about managing his injuries by limiting his ball count.

Rosaforte also reports that Tiger started hitting balls on Tuesday.

Tiger Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg informed the PGA of America today that unless something goes wrong next week at Firestone, Tiger will play in the 2011 PGA Championship in two weeks at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

This news is no surprise — and it will take two healthy weeks from Tiger to not only try and win his 15th major but also accumulate enough FedEx points to go deep into the Playoffs.

Tiger Woods announced on his website tonight that he will return to the PGA Tour next week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in Akron, Ohio. He basically owns the place, having won there seven times.

Tiger tweeted: “Feeling fit and ready to tee it up at Firestone next week. Excited to get back out there!”

I would assume if he gets through next week OK then he’ll be good to go for the PGA Championship in two weeks.

Also, Jason Sobel of Golf Channel has learned that Tiger’s childhood friend and head of his golf course design business Bryon Bell will be on the bag next week.

The Jets got their number one priority signed today when WR Santonio Holmes signed a five-year, $50 million deal today, with $24 guaranteed.

Mark Sanchez keeps his play-making wide receiver, Tone Time still reigns, and the Jets can move on to their next priority.

The Jets have made their first move of free agency. According to his agent, via Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, They have signed Wayne Hunter to a new four-year deal to be their right tackle. That means Damien Woody, who said yesterday he’d either return to the Jets or retire, will retire.

I would have preferred to keep Woody for another year but apparently he didn’t give the Jets a decision on if he wanted to return earlier in the day and the Jets decided to go with Hunter.

He did a nice job when Woody went down, so I don’t mind the move — just would have preferred Woody.
