DORAL, Fla. – Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis reported on Tuesday’s “Morning Drive” that Tiger Woods’ caddie, Joey LaCava, was at Doral on Monday walking the golf course, an indication that the world No. 1 will likely be at the WGC-Cadillac Championship when play begins on Thursday.

Woods withdrew from the Honda Classic after 13 holes on Sunday with back spasms and said in a statement, “It's too early to tell. I need treatment every day until Thursday to try and calm it down. We'll see how it is.”

Woods is the defending champion at Doral and is still scheduled to meet with the media on Wednesday afternoon.
