Woods feeling better and ready to play

March 5, 2014

DORAL, Florida (AP) — The only tools Tiger Woods used on Wednesday at Doral were wedges, a putter and a pair of gold scissors.

Three days after he withdrew in the middle of the final round at the Honda Classic with lower back pain, Woods returned to work at the Cadillac Championship by saying he feels better after a few days of constant treatment, and that he was good enough to try to defend his title.

He just won’t be playing the new Blue Monster until the opening round Thursday. Still being cautious about back spasms, Woods only walked 18 holes to chip, putt and study a course that is entirely different from the one where he has won four times.
