Tiger Woods Plays Through A Stiff Back And Manages 72

Tiger Woods has played all year without any concerns with his back. He had to play through some back tightness but still managed to shoot an even-par 72 on Thursday at the Memorial Tournament.

Woods started his day off 4-over par after seven holes. He clawed his way back with a birdie on his eight hole of the day and carded four more birdies against one bogey on his back nine. Tiger was fighting with back soreness causing him to make some adjustments to his swing. It definitely seems to work since he went 3-under par on last nine holes.

“I wasn’t rotating very well today, back was tight, and just it is what it is some days,” he said. “I just have days like that. It’s aging and it’s surgeries. Just got to make the adjustments,” Woods said. “I’m able to make them now. Beginning of the year, I wasn’t able to make them, because I didn’t really know what to do yet. But now you see me making these adjustments on the fly.”

Lets hope Tiger only experiences soreness and not any pain in his back. He will look to go low on Friday and move into contention for the weekend.
