Woods says elbow feels good

GULLANE, Scotland — Tiger Woods met with the media on Tuesday morning at Muirfield Golf Club in his pre-Open press conference. Woods, who was again thwarted from teeing off before 7am for his practice round, said it was no big deal since he had only planned to play nine holes every day, anyway.

While he insists his left elbow, which gave him grief at last month’s U.S. Open, isn’t troubling him, it has forced him to be more prudent in his preparation for the Open Championship that kicks off on Thursday.

Sunny skies forecasted for Tiger's elbow and Muirfield...for now.

Tiger ran into some bad weather conditions when the Open was last held at Muirfield in ’02

After resting and rehabilitating his injured left elbow, which hampered him at last month’s U.S. Open and sidelined him from playing in his own event, the AT&T National, Tiger Woods says he’s ready for next week’s Open Championship.

On Saturday morning, Woods released a blog post on his website and announced he’s “confident” his ailing elbow won’t be a hindrance in his quest to break his five-year major-less drought, but it’ll be important for him to stay out of Muirfield’s heavy rough.

Although Tiger Woods was forced to withdraw from the AT&T National, the event that benefits his foundation, he’s still been on hand this week at Congressional Country Club playing host duties.

Woods, who appeared more forthcoming about his elbow injury, pushed it “pretty good” the other week during the U.S. Open and wouldn’t go as far to say he would be completely healed in time for the Open Championship at Muirfield in three weeks, according to multiple reports

OW! My elbow!

OW! My elbow!

It was no secret Tiger Woods played the U.S. Open in pain. His left arm was clearly agitated as he grimaced his way to a mediocre finish last week at Merion.

Last year at the AT&T National, the tournament he hosts at Congressional Country Club, he won with ease and passed Jack Nicklaus for second in all-time PGA Tour career wins — but we all know Woods only cares about leapfrogging Nicklaus in majors.

Tiger's elbow played a leading role

Tiger’s elbow played a painful role

It wasn’t pretty, nor was it easy — it’s the U.S. Open, after all — but despite an elbow injury, which was originally thought to be his wrist, Tiger Woods dug deep to shoot an even par 70, three-over 36-hole total, trailing clubhouse leader Billy Horschel by four strokes.

In Thursday’s rain-delayed first round, Tiger looked like he injured himself after hitting a shot in Merion’s extremely penal and thick rough. Turns out it’s been nagging him since last month’s Players Championship, which Woods won for the second time in his career. (You know, that same tournament where he was paired with Sergio Garcia that reignited all the drama.)
