Tiger Woods says he feels better now than he has in years. It is great to say that, but will your golf game be the same way. Tiger has been recuperating for an assortment of injuries, so we will have to see if he is as good as he wants the public to believe. Woods fired his long-time caddie Steve Williams and has an old-time friend caddie for him. Now I think Woods will miss Williams a lot, but we will have to wait and see if it works out that way.
It has been nearly two years since Woods last won, and he's dealt with swing and injury issues for most of the interim. A year ago at this very tournament, Woods seemingly hit rock bottom when he shot 18-over par and finished 30 strokes behind winner Hunter Mahan. No matter what Tiger Woods tells himself or others it will all come down to what he does on the course. If he has a rough day he may pull the plug on his return early. We will have to wait and see how it works out for him.
