Woods Bounces Back At World Tourney

World number one Tiger Woods will play in the World Golf Championships at Doral despite withdrawing injured from the Honda Classic on Sunday.
The 38-year-old American pulled out of the final round of the tournament in Florida because of a back injury.
But Woods confirmed he would take part in the WGC event in Miami, which starts on Thursday and forms a key part of the build-up to the Masters on 10 April.
“I feel better. I feel good,” said Woods. It has been a long couple of days of just treatment non-stop, trying to get it to calm down and trying to get everything firing in the proper sequence. It feels good”.
Woods hit a five-under-par 65 on Saturday to move into contention in Florida but was five-over-par in his final round when he withdrew on the 13th hole.
His involvement at the WGC was in doubt but he has decided to defend the title he won at Doral in 2013.
Describing his injury, he said: “It comes and goes. I thought I could play through it but I couldn’t. Sometimes it gets better. Others, I just deal with it”.
Woods will be grouped with Australian world number two Adam Scott and Sweden’s Henrik Stenson for the opening two rounds but said his main focus was to be ready for the Masters at Augusta, where the last of his four victories came in 2005.
