Tiger Woods happy with his improvement ahead of Quicken Loans National

  • Will Tiger Woods use a mallet putter this week? It seems like a new flat stick might be in play. 

"I've done some things I haven't done in over a decade!"

"I would like to get in there one more time", said Woods, an eight-time victor at Firestone.

Woods, who has been a regular again on the PGA Tour in 2018 after his recovery from a back injury, is among the favourites for victory this week. My back was not fused and there was no guarantee I'd play golf, forget the PGA Tour.

"Hopefully I can pace myself, get into the events and make sure I stay strong enough and fresh enough to play quite a few tournaments". The strength of field is relatively weak this week, so even a finish as high as second would only move Woods to 55th in the world. But the Canadian follows The Open and precedes the WGC-Bridgestone.

At 39th on the US points list, he's certainly on Furyk's radar as a potential team member, but his chances to be among the top 8 qualifiers is much more precarious considering the qualifying deadline is after the PGA Championship.

A TaylorMade official confirmed the company delivered 15 putters to Woods and while the current World No 82 has a deal to use TaylorMade clubs, it does not include the putter. That is why he's been experimenting with a different model that he said he's still unsure about employing during the tournament.

Officials say the contractor was working the overnight shift when he apparently passed away inside the ballpark. Another worker from the same company found him in a walk-in freezer, police said.

"I'm pretty excited the way I've hit the golf ball", he said. I just have not been rolling it on my lines. "Now I'm competing, playing and having a great time doing it".

The Scotty Cameron putter Woods has used for the majority of his career - including winning 13 majors - is still with him this week.

"At this particular time [last year] I didn't know". Getting late to earn his first trip to the Tour Championship since 2013.

"I would like to get in there one more time, " Woods said.

Following the PGA, Woods would take a week off before embarking on the Northern Trust and the Dell Technologies Championship, the first two playoff events.

"To be able to build a golf swing around something that's never been done before, no one's had clubhead speeds as what I've had on the TOUR this year with a lower back fusion". All things being equal, it would be a hard argument for Furyk to make if Woods didn't crack the top 30 in points or show some serious signs of competitive life in the playoffs.
