Tiger Woods ready to impress say peers

Tiger Woods ready to impress say peers

TIGER WOODS SAYS he is playing pain-free as he prepares to make a comeback from nine months out with back issues at the Hero World Challenge this week.

Last week, Woods played a casual four-ball match at Trump National Golf Club with three of the biggest names in golf: President Donald Trump, the world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, and the eight-time PGA Tour victor and current Fox Sports analyst Brad Faxon. Faxon said Tiger looked great and was happy on the course, since he says he is finally pain free.

"The fact that I don't have any pain in my lower back anymore compared to what I was living with for years, it's just remarkable", he said. I think he was excited to be in that group and we had a lot of fun'.

Woods underwent a fourth operation on his back earlier this year and he will now host his own tournament in the Bahamas this weekend. I'm looking forward to competing again and finding the rhythm and the feel of playing tournament golf and just hitting shots.

"I was very impressed about him going out and being able to hit the golf shots he wanted, including being able to use his drive to draw and fade the ball".

"Probably on the 10 holes that they were both hitting driver, Tiger hit it past Dustin half the time and Dustin hit it past Tiger half the time". Whether it was hard and fast, to hold it up into the wind, or soft, or going at it a little steeper in the bunkers. "But he's in a great place mentally and physically". "The ball flight, the sound off the club, all of it was right there". Rickie Fowler said the 79-time PGA Tour victor has been hitting it "way by" him at Medalist Golf Club, where they are both members, while the former world No. 1 Jason Day said Woods is "the best he's ever felt in three years".

And in a practice round with Rickie Fowler and Patrick Reed, Tiger was consistently outdriving Reed by at least 15 yards.

"That morning, Trump tweeted that he was going to be playing with Johnson and Woods", Faxon wrote. And it's been a struggle for years.

That, for me, was easily the most harrowing moment of the 2017 season and, if there is to be even a hint of the same thing starting to materialise over the next few months, then enough really is enough.
