Golf: Day optimistic major back pain will not return this week
A day after arriving at the Players Championship and putting to bed worries of another prolonged absence, Woods seemed intent on ending any discussion that his cold putter is an serious threat to his comeback.
Now that the 2019 Players Championship field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Yes, that includes Tiger Woods, who will be on the course for his second straight Players after playing TPC Sawgrass just once in the four years prior.
Tigers Woods says he is progressing nicely ahead of the Masters despite a neck injury which prompted him to miss Bay Hill.
"I felt like a few times I played well around here, it's just I couldn't ever get anything going".
Indian Wells: Naomi Osaka through, Venus downs Kvitova
Osaka will next face Danielle Collins , the 25th-seeded American who beat Belgian Kirsten Flipkens, 6-4, 6-1. Britain's 22nd seed Kyle Edmund advanced to round three with a 6-2 6-0 victory over Chile's Nicolas Jarry.
"I hit a 5-iron into the first hole, and I haven't hit anything but a 9-iron or a wedge in there for 12 years". He cited a neck strain for skipping the event he's won eight previous times, and some wondered if he would be in jeopardy of missing the Masters again. He 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. Reigning champion Webb Simpson returns to defend his title, teeing up in March for the first time at the event.
Some of Woods' putting issues could be traced to the neck problems, which he said got progressively worse in Mexico, where despite the issues he managed to tie for 10th. And it was just gradually getting worse.
"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".
Keith Mitchell, United States - The 27-year-old Mitchell came out of nowhere the last two weeks by winning the Honda Classic and finishing T6 in Arnold Palmer Invitational. 3.

They will then have an expanded bilateral meeting, . where we will once again see the key North Korea-U.S. delegates in one frame. After holding a working lunch, the two leaders plan to sign a joint statement around 2 p.m.
There are certainly some big names in this group, including last year's victor, Webb Simpson (+5000) Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar are two other names to watch in this list, and there is a chance to make some money by picking the right victor from this group of talented golfers.
The Players Championship is commonly known as golf's fifth major, and arguably has the strongest line-up of any tournament in the calendar.
"We are going to make certain that our players understand how we're working with our industry partners, what our thinking is that we're sharing with our industry partners and that this game will be well served by having two great professional governing bodies, " Monahan said. The wind's going to probably - actually I haven't looked at what it's going to be in the tournament, but predominantly in a complete different direction. He is coming into the weekend with four top-six finishes in his last five appearances and has a great track record at Sawgrass with two second place finishes and an 11th place finish a year ago. "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 a little more consistent and I think everything is headed on track towards April.
As for his health, Woods does not consider that a major concern.
