Tiger Woods 'right on track' for Masters

Tiger Woods 'right on track' for Masters

At his Tuesday news conference at THE PLAYERS, he insisted he is ready to go.

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. - Tiger Woods' only pain in the neck this week might be his putting.

The American had to pull out last minute of the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a neck injury, however he has since confirmed his recovery and is fully-fit to try and claim his third Players title. Despite the best promotional efforts of the PGA Tour, the biggest tournament on golf's most lucrative circuit will nearly certainly never be ranked higher than fifth - after the four constituent parts of the grand slam: the Masters, the US Open, the Open Championship and the US PGA in a long-established pecking order. He already has two wins this year and four top-10 finishes in six tournaments.

"I hit a 5-iron into the first hole, and I haven't hit anything but a 9-iron or a wedge in there for 12 years".

Woods chose not to push it last week by skipping Bay Hill, where he has won eight times. The PGA Tour returned its flagship event from Mother's Day to March Break in order to have major events, which The Players is hyped up to be, spaced out each month of the season. And it was just gradually getting worse. Woods says with a fused lower back, the stress from a golf swing has to go somewhere.

For starters, there are a ton of doglegging holes, with no two consecutive holes that play in the same direction. Webb Simpson's final round of 73 was the highest final round by a victor on the PGA Tour previous year.

Well, almost. Known as the unofficial "fifth major", The Players Championship tees off this week at the iconic TPC Sawgrass.

When Woods is putting well he likes to feel the toe of the putter release through the ball, something he says is more reminiscent of Ben Crenshaw or Bobby Locke than numerous players on tour today.

"I played really well all day", Fleetwood told Sky Sports.

Kiradech, 29, recalled his horror show on the 17th hole previous year where he was six over on that hole alone during the weekend rounds. "I just kept my head down and felt like it was my week, it was my turn to get the job done". This is an important week and I'm going to focus on this week.

"It started to get a little tighter and tighter as I played more holes in Mexico", Woods said.

"I think everything is headed on track towards April (the Masters)". Woods has 14 major triumphs while Nicklaus is the all-time leader with 18.

Long before the back surgeries, he had four surgeries on his left knee, the worst of them in 2008 a week after he won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. The only other cut he missed since then was the U.S. Open. "The rough isn't as long or as gnarly and when you miss the greens you are not having to contend with that Bermuda (grass) and guess how it's going to come out". He's finished inside the top 20 in each of his previous starts despite a troublesome putter.
