Woods' neck "not painful" ahead of Players Championship

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Tiger Woods heads into this week's Players Championship with his neck in good shape and he expects his putter to feel the same.

After withdrawing from last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational PGA Tour event with a tight neck, Woods was back in action on Tuesday playing a practice round at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, Florida in the run up to the Players.

Woods' neck and putter have both been a little strained since the start the season with the former world number one, recognized as one of the game's greats with the short stick, carding six three-putts in each of his last two tournaments.

But with his neck now pain free, Woods says his putting has also come around as he chases a third Players title, regarded golf's unofficial fifth major, and 81st career PGA Tour win.

"I feel good about both," Woods, the only golfer to win the Players both when it was staged in March and May, told reporters after getting in nine holes.

"The putting feels so much better as I feel better, it kind of goes hand-in-hand.

"We are all going to have patches where we don't putt well and patches where we make everything." To make sure he was not overlooking anything, Woods has brought in putting guru Matt Killen to examine his stroke.

Woods work on the greens had not been up his usual standards before his neck issues, which he said only made things worse.
