LOUISVILLE---After a bit of confusion,
Tiger Woods finally arrived at Valhalla
Now, to determine if he s fit enough
to compete in the PGA Championship.
For three days, there has been spec-
ulation about whether Woods ailing
back would allow him to play in the
final major of the year.
He was at least going to give it a
shot, after some miscommunication
with the PGA of America.
The organisation sent out a release
about noon local time (1600 GMT)
saying Woods was at the course. Then,
officials said they weren t sure he had
actually arrived. A little more than an
hour later, Woods pulled into his
reserved parking spot.
He didn t seem be in any pain as he
got out of the car and changed shoes.
Sporting sunglasses and a goatee,
Woods headed straight to the driving
range with caddie Joe LaCava. Hundreds
of fans crowded around a staircase as
he crossed over above them, snapping
photos of the 14-time major champion
with their phones. He pulled out a
wedge and started his session with
some easy half-swings, eventually
working his way up to the driver.
Woods moved slowly but showed no
visible signs of discomfort as he bent
over to tee up his ball.
After less than an hour on the range,
he strolled to No 1 for a practice round
with Steve Stricker, Davis Love III and
Harris English, about 18 1-2 hours
before his scheduled Thursday morning
tee time. Woods has never missed three
majors in one year since he played his
first one as a 19-year-old amateur in
Woods had back surgery on March
31 and was out for three months, skip-
ping the Masters and the US Open. He
returned in late June for the Quicken
Loans National at Congressional, where
he missed the cut by four shots. He
finished 69th at the British Open.
At the Bridgestone Invitational on
Sunday, Woods injured his lower back
on the second hole of the final round
after hitting an awkward shot from
above a bunker and landing hard when
he jumped back into the sand.
He was driven off the course after
his tee shot on the ninth hole and head-
ed home to Florida for treatment.
This was the latest Woods has ever
arrived for a major. He has not seen
Valhalla since he won the PGA Cham-
pionship in 2000 in a playoff over Bob
May. Woods was recovering from
reconstructive knee surgery in 2008
when the Ryder Cup was played on the
Jack Nicklaus design.
Woods absence led to endless photos
of his vacant parking spot.
Now, that spot is filled.
"He still has a huge impact, especially
on the media side," Rickie Fowler said.
"You can see all the attention with last
