Tiger Woods says he feels good going into The Players Championship after he withdrew from last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational with a neck strain.
The 80-time PGA Tour champion, who will play a nine hole practice round on Tuesday in Florida, assured fans that his injury had nothing to do with his troublesome back, but revealed that he could not make a full swing of the club.
Having first felt the problem in Mexico during the World Golf Championship, Woods arrived at TPC Sawgrass ready to go after a break and light practice.
“I feel good,” Woods told Golfweek. “Everything is good, I feel good, I just needed last week off.
“I didn’t want to push it. No need to, not at my age. I can’t do that anymore.
“I could feel it in Mexico,” Woods added. “It wasn’t fun. I couldn’t make a backswing, I couldn’t make a follow through, and I couldn’t make a complete swing.”
