Agent: Tiger Woods will compete at Doral after back spasms
Tiger Woods, who pulled out of the final round of the Honda Classic on Sunday with back spasms, will play in the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral starting Thursday, according to Woods' agent Mark Steinberg.
Woods is expected to have an afternoon press conference before "getting a look at the newly-reconfigured course where [he] was won four times," according to ESPN.com's Bob Harig.
"He wouldn't be coming down here if he didn't intend to compete at the highest level,'' Steinberg said. "He intends to play and wants to play well.''
The 38-year-old is the top-ranked golfer in the world. His last win came at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last August. Woods withdrew after 13 holes on Sunday. He was 5-over for the round at the time, one day after shooting a season-best 65. It was the fourth time in the last five years Woods has withdrawn from a tournament due to injury, Harig reports.
