Tiger Woods says his competitive mind-set remains the same as ever

Tiger Woods says his competitive mind-set remains the same as ever

Tiger Woods delivered a strong indication he is ready for his comeback after a 16-month layoff when out-driving Olympic champion Justin Rose at Nassau's Albany Club in the Bahamas on Monday.

Two of them, in particular.

"He asked me a bunch of technical questions about the game, and I could hear him pick the brain over there with Rosie", Woods said, per Golf.com.

It will be the first time Woods has played in the event owned by his charity foundation since it moved past year to the Bahamas and the Albany resort's par-72, 7,267-yard Ernie Els-designed course.

Woods now has no plans to follow Jeter into retirement - he's set to play in the Hero World Challenge this week to begin his return to the PGA Tour - but who knows? "Once you are inside the ropes you are competing, trying to beat each other's brains out, but away from it, the camaraderie is what I am really looking forward to". But these putters are off limits. These two only. Daddy only.

Tiger Woods has prepared for tournaments many, many times over the course of his almost 41 years on the planet and, as he gets ready to play competitively again, he admits that he's just as anxious as ever.

"I'm going to try to do the same thing I always do", Woods said.

That's it for today's roundup but check back in tomorrow when we'll do it all again.

He is now ranked 879 in the world, and that tells its own story. The station said the median survival time is about three years. He had another back surgery that knocked him out of the Masters for the first time in 2014.

The final world ranking mostly helps global players who are not playing a full PGA Tour schedule.

He ranked twelfth on Forbes' 2016 sporting rich list despite not having played at all this year. Now, there are over 50 who cross 300 yards effortlessly.

Poulter tees up for the first time in a European Tour event in 10 months at the season opening Australian PGA after a lengthy recovery from a foot injury. He still has a Skins Game in Colombia with Camilo Villegas before heading home for the South African Open.

"I know that's a tall order since I've been away from the game for so long and I've made a lot of different changes in my game", he said.

For a 47-year-old with 57 victories worldwide, four majors and a spot in the Hall of Fame, there would seem to be no reason to grind. He doesn't know how his game will stack up against players he watched at Hazeltine when he was an assistant captain at the Ryder Cup.

"I have enough of everything". "I haven't played in a while. And I love it", Els said. He wants to get to 20.

Woods, who's now ranked 879th, joked, "I know you have to be in the top 50 in order to get into this event, but the committee allowed one person who's outside the top 50 get into the event". Overlooked as a pick, he was an assistant captain at Hazeltine, and he said he learned how to become a better player.

Watson has played on three Ryder Cup teams and two Presidents Cup teams. He has had only four partners - Jeff Overton, Webb Simpson, Matt Kuchar and J.B. Holmes. It would make for a fantastic final chapter: the greatest golfer of his generation, now in his 40′s, going toe-to-toe with a group of young guns who grew up idolizing him, but aren't intimidated by the transcendent player he once was.
