Tiger Woods Bay Hill

Tiger Woods Bay Hill, Three times in talking about his left Achilles tendon, Tiger Woods said he was “good to go.”
How good? Woods said it felt the same as it did before he had to withdraw midway through the final round at Doral two weeks ago, back when his health was not a popular topic. He had closed with a 62 in the Honda Classic. His game was on an upward trend, minus the winning.
How long can he go? Not even Woods can answer that question.One week after tightness in his Achilles caused him to grimace in pain, limp and then pull out after 11 holes at a World Golf Championship, Woods teed it up at Augusta National for a practice round. Turns out it was a mild strain, and a few days of treatment had him back to feeling normal.
Then, he played a two-day exhibition at Lake Nona, followed by the pro-am Wednesday at Bay Hill. He begins the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Thursday, and likely will wind up playing eight straight days.
Could the Achilles flare up again on Thursday at Bay Hill? Thursday at the Masters?
“It could,” Woods said. “But hopefully, it won’t.” The next step starts at Bay Hill, on a course where he has won six times. Woods is playing Thursday morning alongside Ernie Els, who witnessed his 62 at the Honda Classic, and Hunter Mahan, with whom he shares a swing coach.
