PITTSFORD, N.Y. – Tiger’s back.
At various times during his even-par 70, Woods swung and followed by almost immediately grabbing his lower back. When asked after the round if this would be a long-term issue, he smiled, laughed, shook his head and offered a one-word response: “No.”
As for what was wrong with his back, Woods maintained that it was merely stiff throughout the round.
“It's been tight all day,” he allowed. “Just one of those things.”
