Tiger Woods Works With Putting Coach At Players

Tiger Woods says a sore neck that kept him out of Bay Hill last week is no longer painful. Woods says his job is to make sure to stay fit and flexible

The first major change in the PGA Tour schedule has finally arrived as the best golfers in the world head to TPC Sawgrass in March for The Players Championship in 2019. "It was getting to the point where it was affecting my set up, my back swing, my through swing".

"The stress has to go somewhere if I don't have movement, so it's very important for me to keep pliable". These players must know how to get themselves out of trouble which means scrambling becomes key to success this weekend.

It's not the first time Woods has asked someone to look at him. Although it's just 137 yards to the Island Green, the hole is surrounded on nearly all sides by water and has a tiny bunker in front of it, leading to many highlight-reel moments as frustrated golfers try to get their drives to stay on the green. "I'm 43 with four back surgeries".

That's good news for DJ but perhaps bad news for the rest of the field. "There are times over the years I have pushed it and I've won a few tournaments that way, but also I've cost myself a few years here and there because of it". "I'm trying to treat every event like a major", he said. That's how it is going to be going forward. "When I have an injury, I get sad and depressed". He has logged just one other top 20.

Perks planted a nine-iron tee shot into the heart of the green, then rolled in a 28-foot birdie putt in treacherously quick conditions to give him a two-shot advantage heading to the 72nd hole over Ames, who held the clubhouse lead following a sparkling final-round 67. "I had been feeling that my stroke has been off, but a lot of it is physical".

You’re not alone: Facebook & Instagram are experiencing issues
According to tracking website Down Detector, the problems hit Facebook users in Europe and the United States hardest. A similar message appeared to users on Instagram when trying to log in, saying, "We couldn't connect to Instagram ".

"It was out of control, it was a raucous atmosphere and I was actually embracing it", Perks said.

"Matt has seen my stroke enough", Woods said. He mentioned a few things and, as I started to feel a bit better this past week, the putting definitely freed up. "It just made it worse". "I've got to stay fit, I've got to stay on it, and have to stay as loose as I possibly can for as long as I play out here". "I grew up feeling more like Bobby Locke and Ben Crenshaw letting the putter go and, if I do that, I feel great".

Woods said the neck strain first surfaced at the WGC-Mexico Championship, where he played through the pain to finish tied-10th.

Adam Scott at TPC Sawgrass in just his third PLAYERS start in 2004 and has three top 10s and three other four other top 20s since then. "A lot of the tee shots are hard so if I can do that well and be aggressive then hopefully I can do enough other things right to be up there".

"My finishes are getting a little bit better, I've gotten more consistent. And I think that everything is headed on track toward April".
