Woods says he feels good on arrival at Players Championship


With his fused lower spine in a fixed position, Woods said the energy from his swing has to go either up to his neck or down to his hip or knee.

Former world number one Tiger Woods reported for duty at the Players Championship on Tuesday, insisting he was fully recovered from the neck problem which forced him to skip last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational. I feel like good shots weren't always rewarded, just with the way the course was playing. "But also, I've cost myself a few years here and there because of it".

Don't call it the fifth major (there are only four, therefore there can be no fifth), but THE PLAYERS Championship still features one of the best fields of the year and one of the most unpredictable outcomes of the season.

"I'm curious to see how it goes this year, because the course is going to be a totally different one than what we saw in May", said Mickelson, whose only victory in the tournament came the first time it was played in May in 2007.

It flared up again at the Genesis Open last month, and then got worse in Mexico City the following week. It was gradually getting worse. Just in contention, if it's tough, certain guys are going to throw themselves out, and it really kind of whittles down to a few players.

Woods did not want to commit to a pre-Masters schedule until after The Players was over. He missed a cut last week at Bay Hill (notably not a major) but finished T11 here past year. That's followed by the Dell Technologies Match Play, a World Golf Championship for which he had not been eligible since 2014.

"Everything is good", Woods said.

The 43-year-old is aiming for his 15th major title at Augusta, when the Masters starts on 11 April.

With 600 FedEx Cup points available at the Players Championship - most tournaments have 500 on the line - it's an opportunity to shoot up the standings.

"Just one hole I didn't play good", said Kiradech. "I'm not going to be sitting in my bus depressed, and especially when the doctors tell me to go and walk".

"I'm not saying Brooks doesn't hit it straight, but fairways are generally wider the last couple years and a bomber should have won".

"My finishes are getting a little bit better, I've gotten more consistent". However, I think I've nearly secured my card for next season, so it releases some stress a little bit and this will allow me to play my own game.

One thing hasn't changed as far as Woods is concerned.

Rose won the Farmers Insurance Open in January but then missed the cut in Saudi Arabia and could only finish 63rd at Bay Hill last week after rounds of 77 and 75 over the weekend.
