Woods Prepared for Challenge

Tiger Woods is waking up pain free for the first time in three years ahead of his return to golf at next week’s Hero World Challenge, former world number one Jason Day said on Wednesday.
Woods, who has not played competitive golf for 10 months as he recovers from a fourth operation on his back in three years, will be making his comeback next week at his own tournament in Albany, Bahamas.
“I did talk to him and he did say it’s the best he’s ever felt in three years, he doesn’t wake up with pain anymore, which is great,” Day said.
The winner of five tournaments in 2013, 41-year-old Woods has played just 19 events since. The 14-time major champion made an earlier comeback at the Hero World Challenge last year after nearly 16 months on the sidelines, finishing 15th. He showed flashes of brilliance but struggled with accuracy.
Woods returned to the PGA Tour in January but missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open before shooting an opening-round 77 a week later at the European Tour’s Dubai Desert Classic and withdrawing.
In April, he said he had undergone a fourth operation on his back in three years.
Australian Day, now world number 12, said the Hero World Challenge was the perfect tournament for Woods to make his return.
“With regards to him playing next week, there’s no pressure,” Day added. ”It’s an 18-man field, there’s no cut ... it’s obviously a tournament that suits him, that he likes. He says he’s ready and I‘m hoping he is. From what he says, he’s been hitting it long and if he is hitting it long and straight, it’s going to be tough for us.”
