Tiger Woods played nine holes early Tuesday morning at Firestone in preparation for his return to the PGA Tour and says his health is as good as it’s been in years.
After a break of nearly three months to deal with lingering injury issues, Woods enters the Bridgestone Invitational at No. 28 in the rankings.
Woods says his expectations haven’t changed and that he still expects to win, even though he hasn’t played since May 12 and hasn’t won any tournament since November of 2009.
This is his first event since firing longtime caddie Steve Williams. Woods says he has no timetable for hiring a permanent replacement.
Childhood friend Bryon Bell is on his bag this week.
