GOLF: Woods returns with no pain
BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — About two dozen photographers lined up in a row on the range at Congressional, a reminder that golf is different when Tiger Woods is around.
And that was before Woods even arrived to hit balls for 35 minutes.
He was last seen wearing golf shoes on March 9, when he walked gingerly off the golf course at Doral with back pain that had been bothering him off and on since August 2012 and finally reached a point that he chose surgery over playing two majors.
Woods returns at the Quicken Loans National with big hopes and realistic expectations — and with no pain.
Asked for an opening comment on where he is with his recovery, Woods smiled and said, “I’m right here.”
