Tiger Woods returns. Tiger Woods is the same.
Woods met the media Tuesday in Akron, Ohio at Firestone Country Club, site of this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
This will mark Woods’ first start since withdrawing after nine holes of May’s Players Championship due to left knee and Achilles’ injuries.
If you were expecting a forthcoming Woods on his physical condition … well, you should know better.
When asked about his knee and any concerns moving forward, Woods said, “It’s solid, stable. I don’t feel a thing.” He offered no comment on the latter part of the question.
When asked about his expectations and if he had a swing count this week during practice, he responded curtly, “Same expectations. … No ball count.”
Is he 100-percent healthy? That’s what he led everyone to believe with his short, not-so-sweet answers. Woods, however, has given fans and media little reason to take him fully at his word over the last few years.
Woods may be rejuvenated, but he’s still the same old Tiger.
