Tiger Woods Ready to Give His Back Another Try

Tiger Woods Ready to Give His Back Another Try

Thomas, who is paired with Woods in the first round, spends a fair bit of time with the 14-time major champion at their Florida homes, and they played a few weeks ago. He underwent back surgery in April, his fourth such procedure in just over three years.

Faxon was just the latest golfer to praise Woods' revamped swing, joining Rickie Fowler and Jason Day.

And those comments were confirmed by Faxon, who completed the fourball over the Thanksgiving holiday at Trump's course.

Faxon was impressed with Woods' game, but he believes everyone should temper expectations.

Other notable pairings at the Hero include World No. 1 Dustin Johnson with U.S. Open victor Brooks Koepka, an Open Championship rematch between Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar, and Race to Dubai victor Tommy Fleetwood playing with Justin Rose.

Of the round, Faxon remarked: "He was happy and, more than anything, he is finally pain-free".

Playing a casual 18 holes with Brad Faxon, Dustin Johnson and the President of the United States, Woods was said to be bombing tee shots further than everyone, including Johnson. He looks healthy and that's all I care about.

At the 18th, Woods outdrove Hazeltine Ryder Cup winning Reed by all of 60 yards, showing no signs of any back concern by going 100 per cent in every shot and not flinching at all, even in picking-up a tee. "The ball flight, the sound off the club, all of it was right there". But Faxon did throw out a word of caution after playing with Woods.

Woods' last official event was the Dubai Desert Classic in February, where he shot an opening round of 77 before withdrawing due to lower back spasms.

There's no denying, however, that the vast majority of people out there - golfers and non-golfers alike - have felt sympathy for Woods during his fight with this health issue, which reached crisis point when he was nearly hirpling around the Majlis Course at the Emirates Golf Club during the first round of the
Omega Dubai Desert Classic in
early February. That was his only competitive outing of 2016. "It's been a struggle for years". He said: "Many may forget that I spent much of this year in bed so much I couldn't even get out of bed to have a ****".
