Jordan Spieth believes Tiger Woods still has a lot to offer the sport despite his frustration at his latest injury problems. 

Former world No 1 Woods is recovering from a third back operation and has refused to set a timetable for when, if at all, he will return to competitive action.

Spieth is in the Bahamas to defend the Hero World Challenge title he won last year, with Woods acting as tournament host.

The 39-year-old cut a disconsolate figure at his news conference on Tuesday but Spieth is convinced Woods still has a future in golf.

"Obviously, it's frustrating for him. You can tell that," said Spieth.

"But I think we certainly haven't seen the end of him, even if he does say that if the sun sets on the career now, it's still good.

"I think we can all read between the lines there, that he's ... I think he's still got some really good years left out of him."

Adam Scott echoed Spieth's sentiment but also urged fans to remember just how dominant Woods was in his prime.

"We don't want Tiger checking out of the game any time soon," said Scott.

"It's hard to explain to Jordan coming out now how [Woods] was just so much better than everyone at that point.

"We're all quick to forget that sometimes."
