On the eve of the Memorial Tournament, Tiger Woods says that the bulging disc in his neck, the one that forced him to withdraw from The Players Championship on May 9, “feels pretty good.”
“Actually, my neck feels pretty good,” Woods said Wednesday at Muirfield Village Golf Club, where he participated in a 9-hole skins game that featured two groups of players, including tournament host and founder Jack Nicklaus.
“Still not where I want it to be, but the inflammation has calmed down. I got range of motion again. It’s a little bit sore after a good hard day of practice, but I can recover for the next day, which is good … and get back at it, repeated days in a row, which is what I haven’t been able to do consistently.”
Woods claims that the injury stems from his haste to return for the Masters, which was his first tournament following his very public sex scandal. But if he is feeling better, maybe he’ll prove it with a good showing at the Memorial Tournament this weekend.
