The former world No 1 has had eight operations - four on his back, four on his right knee - and, not surprisingly, the effects linger on the 43-year-old. Like so many tournaments in recent years, Woods has missed the majority but a T11 here last year and a victory just two starts before that (2013) shows this really is a layout that suits his game.

"The stress has to go somewhere if I don't have movement, so it's very important for me to keep pliable".

"Heaven forbid I enjoy a day with my family; I was there half a day walking around", Day said on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT) at the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass.

"It started to get a little tighter and tighter as I played more holes in Mexico", Woods said. "I'm not going to be sitting in my bus depressed, and especially when the doctors tell me to go and walk". As my neck got a little bit tighter, yeah, I didn't feel comfortable with my putting, but it was - my putting was uncomfortable going into that point.

Unlike other professional sports leagues, such as the NFL and National Basketball Association, which have their own rules that differ from how the game is played at other levels, the various professional tours have always adhered to the Rules of Golf. Woods has overcome a neck complaint and has employed a putting coach to combat the fact he had six three-putts in each of his last two tournaments.

PONTE VEDRA ― Tiger Woods waited until the last day to commit to last year's Valspar Championship.

The passengers came from more than 30 nations. "The pilots were well briefed on the air ordinance filed", he said. It comes after the second fatal accident involving the 737 Max 8 model in less than five months.

That turned out to be the reason he showed up at the Valspar a year ago. With three major titles in last two years, Koepka steps up for big events, but his best finish in the Players was a tie for 11th last season. "I'm right where I need to be". "This spot that we're in, that we haven't been in before, has caused a lot of conversation, and I think it's fair that these kind of subjects are brought up".

The reigning FedEx Cup champion will try to improve his record in the Tour's marquee event beginning at 8:32 a.m. Thursday in the company of Justin Thomas and last year's runner-up, Xander Schauffele.

As for his health, Woods does not consider that a major concern. The only other cut he missed since then was the U.S. Open. That's because my lower back is fused.

"It would be nice if we never heard or got asked questions about the USGA, because they should be off to the side and hopefully the rules are here to help us and help us play, " Bradley said.

"I just think there's more factors, there's more intricacies to this golf course, so some years you might come in playing OK, get poor bounces or couple bad club selections here or there, wind comes up on 17... it's largely due to the fact that you just have so many different types of winners and it's hard to know who is going to play well this week". He's finished inside the top 20 in each of his previous starts despite a troublesome putter. Woods hinted that he would commit to the Match Play if he remains healthy.
