Tiger says his neck strain is no longer an issue

We’ll have to wait to find out if Tiger Woods will play the Valspar Championship

Tiger Woods feels he is on course to make an impact at the Masters next month after allaying concerns over a neck injury that kept him out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

In preparation for his bid to land a third Sawgrass success, Woods spent some time earlier in the week working with a putting guru, Matt Killen.

Woods is a two-time victor of the Players, which is being played in March for the first time since 2006-the last 12 editions were played in early May. - Considering the annual parity at The Players Championship and the usual unpredictability being magnified by a move back to March, the smart play this week should be matchup bets - and especially those which offer some value. (AP) - Tiger Woods no longer has a pain in the neck.

The rules of golf have been in the spotlight after new ones were introduced for 2019, with the biggest update in 50 years leading some players to being openly critical of and in some cases hostile towards certain tournament rulings. "I haven't hit anything but a 9-iron or a wedge in there for 12 years".

Woods missed a scheduled tournament for the first time since returning a year ago from spinal fusion surgery, and said it was more to make sure a growing problem that started last month in Los Angeles did not get worse. He finished T11 previous year, a finish that kick-started his comeback season that culminated in a victory at the Tour Championship. "It was getting to the point where [the neck strain] was affecting my set-up, my backswing, my through swing".

"If you get on a bad run here, I mean, this course really can dent your confidence because the severity of penalty is very extreme", Scott added.

"It's just another hole and when you get there you pick a number, you pick club, and you try and hit a golf shot and you keep going from there".

For starters, there are a ton of doglegging holes, with no two consecutive holes that play in the same direction. It returns to March this year in a major shakeup of the PGA Tour's calendar.

That's followed by the Dell Technologies Match Play, a World Golf Championship for which he had not been eligible since 2014. Thomas was able to contend in this tournament previous year as well, finishing 11. I'm right there heading to where I need to be. "I wasn't going to back away from that flag", he later told AP.

Last year's victor Webb Simpson - who will play with Woods in rounds one and two - is at 40/1. "As I've started to feel a little bit better this week or this past week, then the putting definitely freed up". "I understand that I'm going to have good weeks and bad weeks", Woods continued.

"There's nothing easy about that hole", Woods said. "I think I regret the way I was going about trying to get better".

Tiger went with a long-iron stinger that found the left side of the fairway, then tried to hit a cut that stayed out left a good 30 feet left of the flag.
