Well, he has to do something. Since 2011, Woods has missed or withdrawn from 14 tournaments he plays in due to injuries. The only other thing I can think of is playing a limited schedule like Stricker, but he already doesn't play in that many tournaments.

At 38 years old (turning 39 this year), Tiger will likely have some trouble regaining the strength he had before the injury.
That's possible. Time will tell. He may regain his strength, but the better question is.....what will be his next injury? Over the last 6 years he has had several. Knee, achilles heel and of course his back. With his history, no reason to think they are going to stop at this point.

I wonder if his short game will be on another level when he comes back. He's been using all this rehab time to work on chipping and putting...ughhhh I can't wait!
