Tiger Woods arrived at TPC Sawgrass on Monday and declared himself ready for The Players Championship.
“I feel good, man,” he told Golfweek at the course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
Last week, Woods withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational, citing a neck strain.
“I didn’t want to push it. No need to,” Woods said about his choice to drop out of the tournament he’s won eight times. “Not at my age. Can’t do that anymore.”
Woods, 43, said he took most of the week off and didn’t touch a club until Saturday.
“Everything is good,” Woods said. “I feel good. I needed last week off.”
This will be the fourth tournament of the year for Woods. He has finished in the top 20 in each, with his best finish a tie for 10th place in the WGC-Mexico Championship three weeks ago.
