Tiger Woods has 'better understanding' of what he can do in 2019

 

SAN DIEGO -- The pain is gone -- along with the doubts. While it has been more than four months since Tiger Woods competed in an official PGA Tour event, he makes his 2019 debut this week at the Farmers Insurance Open carrying over some momentum from 2018 and with far different expectations.

"There's a better understanding of what I can do,'' Woods said Tuesday after playing a 10-hole practice round with Jordan Spieth at Torrey Pines. "It's hard to describe. Going into this event last year, I really didn't know. I hadn't played out of the rough in years. That's what's weird, it's hard to imagine, but I really hadn't. That was a big uncertainty.

"And the fact I was able to get through ... I didn't have any zinging down my leg like I did before, I didn't have any problems at night recovering for the next day. Those are big accomplishments. Even though I finished [tied for 23rd], those were big accomplishments for me. Now, this year it's totally different. I know what I can do, I know what I'm feeling, so now it's about finishing a little bit better and winning some events this year.''

Woods capped his comeback 2018 season from spinal fusion surgery with a victory at the Tour Championship, his 80th win and one that helped him finish second in the FedEx Cup standings and achieve a world ranking of 13th -- where he begins his season.

A year ago, he was 656th in the world.

For his efforts, Woods, 43, was named on Tuesday by the Golf Writers Association of America as its winner of the Ben Hogan Award, given annually to a player who has overcome a handicap or serious injury.

"I'm grateful to receive an award named after Mr. Hogan and to join a group of truly inspirational individuals,'' Woods said.

Following the U.S. loss in the Ryder Cup, Woods played Phil Mickelson in their one-day match the day after Thanksgiving, followed the next week by the Hero World Challenge where he finished 16th out of 18 players.

After considering playing the Sentry Tournament of Champions at the start of the year, Woods elected to stay home, get fit and work some new equipment into his bag.

He has made the switch to a newer TaylorMade driver and 3-wood called the M5 (he used the M3 last year) with the same shaft. He also has an upgraded version of the P7TW irons, with the same Scotty Cameron putter.

Woods spent a good part of the past three weeks testing those clubs while working on his game and training.

"I've been trying to get stronger,'' Woods said. "Last year towards the end of the season I got really tired because I didn't expect to play that much golf at the end and I didn't train for it. This offseason I spent a lot of time in the gym and I've gotten a lot stronger, I feel like my legs are where they need to be, which they weren't at the end of the season.''

Woods is back at a place where he's had immense success -- seven victories in the tournament now known as the Farmers as well as the 2008 U.S. Open. He last won here in 2013 and since then finished 80th, withdrew during the first round, didn't play, missed the cut and tied for 23rd last year. In 17 appearances in the tournament, he has seven wins and a total of 12 top-10s.

He'll play the first two rounds with Xander Schauffele and Tony Finau, beginning on the South course Thursday at 1:40 p.m. ET and then shifting to the North course on Friday at 12:30 p.m. ET.

Beyond the Genesis Open next month and the major championships, Woods has yet to decide on his schedule, including through the spring leading up to the Masters. He admitted that "guys are going to be making some adjustments this year and I'm one of them,'' due to a heavy run that includes two World Golf Championship events and the Players in the weeks preceding the year's first major.

jordan heating up...4 birdies in last 5 holes.  would be great to see him get back on track.

Jordan isn't low Longhorn.

Doug Ghim is tied for the lead at -8 through 15.

I have a love/hate relationship with this course. Hoping to love it more in about 6 weeks.

And after this hole he went birdie....triple bogey, bogey.

Something has been off with his game since 2018. I’m sure he’ll get it worked out but I’m sure it’s frustrating for him.

TV broadcasts may have to start using a bleep switch like Radio or else PGA will need to start enforcing more bad language penalties....

Tiger and Rahm both caught saying G-Damn It within 5 minutes of each other during live coverage now on Golf Channel.   Funny part was Rahm's shot still ended up on the green only 20ft from the pin.

Like new rule change that allows the flag to stay in even when players are on the green.

5th win since May. 

 

Fucking badass Pony right there boys. 

Also set the MOV record for the tourney - and did it against a pretty damn good field. 

Has yet to finish better than 15th in a major, hope that changes this year!

I know this isn’t some hot take but rose sure looks like someone that is going to have a recorded breaking year. I know that’s tough to do with so much talent on tour but damn his game looks solid all around.

Yeah - I was looking at this weeks OWGR, and Jordan is now at 20. He has 1 top ten since last years Masters, and 4 missed cuts.
I sure hope he can put all the pieces back together, win some events & make a run at a couple of majors getting the career slam

Probably just a coincidence.

No way. This is a well documented phenomenon. Female drama = drama on the course.

I was gonna come here to say something like "no way, he got engaged in the middle of the year, but sucked all year." Then I went and checked, and he get engaged last January. Looks like it's 100% correlated.

Downhill since the engagement? Probably just a coincidence.

Is he building a house?  That seemed to cause issues for the golfers in A Good Walk Spoiled.  It was almost funny how many of them had the biggest slumps of their career while they were working with architects and building a giant house.

Well, he could be laying less pipe rather than more.

Not that I am aware of. He did recently get married but I think he’s still in the same house in the gated neighborhood in Preston Hollow.

Caught the end of the 3rd round of the Euro tour event (Saudi International powered by SBIA, if you really care about the name)

Haotong Li finished the round eagle/eagle to move into a tie with DJ, those were his 3rd & 4th eagles of the round. The first 3 were on par 4's, 2 by chipping in, and on #17 he drove the 350 yard 17th making about a 5 footer. Li had 3 2's on his scorecard today, and none of them on a par 3; shooting a 62 with 2 birdies.

Not sure how I missed this previously, but some dude is stationed on the 16th tee and actually raising up a Quiet Please sign as the crowd roars before and during tee shots.

They don’t really roar that much during the tee shot.
