Woods says he’s healthy ahead of Open

first_imgMuirfield is going to be hard this week, both in the literal and the figurative sense.That’s why world No. 1 Tiger Woods took a month off to rest and rehabilitate his ailing left elbow, originally injured at The Players Championship and aggravated at last month’s U.S. Open at Merion.Woods declared his elbow good to go Tuesday in pursuit of his first major in five years. He’s been stuck on 14 major wins in his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ record 18.“The elbow feels good. It’s one of the good things of taking time off to let it heal and get the treatment and therapy on it. The main reason was that coming over here the ground is going to be hard, obviously. I’m going to need that elbow to be good,” said Woods, whose last win in a major was in 2008 in a playoff at the U.S. Open against Rocco Mediate.“And just in case the rough was – well, reports were it was going to be high and it was going to be lush. I needed to have this thing set and healed and everything is good to go.” Woods’ game has been pretty good this year. He has four wins and it’s not like he’s been miserable at the majors since last winning one.In the 16 majors in which he’s played since coming back from surgery to fix his ACL and fracture issues in his left knee and the revelations about his personal life (he missed two majors in 2011 with an Achilles issue), Woods has eight top 10 finishes.He tied for third at last year’s British Open at Royal Lytham and St. Annes and finished tied for fourth at the Masters this year.“I think it’s just a shot here or there. It’s making a key up-and-down here or getting a good bounce there,” said Woods, “capitalizing on an opportunity here and there…it’s not much.”There’s also the fact the list of contenders has never been deeper than right now. There have been 14 first-time winners in the 20 majors since Woods last won.He didn’t agree with the premise posed to him Tuesday that given the quality of previous winners at Muirfield, the trend towards first-time winners at the majors would be rebuffed.“You probably can’t say that given the fact over the past – what? – five years or so, four or five years, that we’ve had first-time winners at virtually every single major,” said Woods.“The fields are so deep now and the margin between the first player and last player in the field is not that big anymore. It’s very small. I think that’s one of the reasons why you’re seeing so many first-time winners.“Also the equipment has changed quite a bit over the years. The equipment, it’s so precise now. This allows guys to basically stack up. When you get that combined with better, more athletic players, you’re going to get guys who are winning for the first Phil Mickelson is friends again with his flatstick.After an on-and-off relationship the last three or four years, Mickelson, the world’s No. 5, said he’s putting as well as he ever has.When asked about his struggles on links courses, Mickelson, who won the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart Sunday, said: “The common thread is, I believe, is more on the greens than anything. I’ve not putted these greens well with these little subtle nuances and rolls with the crosswinds that come into play as well as the strong blades of fescue grass.“But I’m really optimistic about this week and going forward because I’m starting to putt as well as I ever have. I putted great last week and more than that, I’ve putted well now for months. “(I) kind of found the secret to my own putting and what I need to do to putt well…hopefully that one common thread that’s given me problems here (on links courses), I hopefully have solved.”Mickelson was asked a couple of other questions including one about his putting secret, which he didn’t answer.“I tried to skip over that because I’m not going to discuss it,” he said. “I feel that I’ve kind of keyed in on something and I don’t really want to share.”We’ll see as the week unfolds at Muirfield if he’s really onto something here.last_img read more

O Connor was on hand again minutes later to put the ball in the Down net for the third time. At the end of the first quarter Donegal were leading 3-1 to 0-1. To their credit the Down management made a couple of changes and for the remainder of the half dominated mid field and were always a threat with full forward giving Rory Quinn giving Shaun Mc Laughlin a torrid time.Indeed minutes before the half Down forward hit the post to miss a score that would have changed the complexion of the game.The second half was again dominated by Down possession but with Jack Scally now martialing the dangerous Quinn the mourne men never seemed likly to get the goals hat would bring them back into the game.The teams traded four points each before a second goal for Mulligan put an end to proceedings for the day. While Donegal were the better team onthe day the scoreline does injusdice to a Down team that eliminated Tyrone in the first round.Donegal will now play the winners of Cavan and Monaghan which is being played in Brewster Park at 11 am today. This will see Donegal defend their Ulster title with the game pencilled for Brewster Park next Thursday evening.Donegal manager Joe McKelvey said he was pleased with his players efforts but stressed that they have won nothing yet.DONEGAL VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS EASE PAST DOWN TO REACH FINAL was last modified: November 23rd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
