Woods allays injury fears
Tiger Woods will continue to manage his fitness ahead of the Masters next month but insists he is bang on course for Augusta.
The former world number one has been struggling with a neck injury that forced him to miss the Arnold Palmer invitational, but will be fine to play at The Players Championship at Sawgrass this week.
Victory would be huge for the American, but the clear goal is winning his 15th major and making sure he is in perfect condition for the Masters.
Woods has completed three tournaments in 2019, finishing 20th (Farmers Insurance Open), 15th (Genesis Open) and 10th (WGC-Mexico Championship), and says he is happy with where his game is at.
"I've played three tournaments so far and that's about right. I'm right there heading to where I need to be," he said. "I think everything is headed on track towards April. My finishes are getting a little bit better, I've gotten more consistent.
"I have to stay fit and it's about managing it the best I can and not push it.
"It's about trying to manage what I have. I'm 43 with four back surgeries so let's manage what I have and understand that I'm going to have good weeks and bad weeks."
