Tiger Woods arrived at the BMW Championship on Tuesday and announced "I feel good" after withdrawing from last week's event due to injury.
"Feel a lot better than I felt last week," Woods said via Golfweek.com. "Felt good this morning so I thought I'd give it a go."
Woods withdrew before the second round of The Northern Trust on Friday morning, citing a "mild oblique strain that led to pain and stiffness." He struggled a day earlier, shooting an opening-round 4-over-par 75 in the first of three events of the season-ending FedEx Cup playoffs.
Woods, 43, dropped from 28th to 38th in the FedEx Cup standings. The top 70 advanced to this week's no-cut tournament at Medinah Country Club outside of Chicago, but he has work to do to make the 30-man field for next week's Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta.
According to projections on PGATour.com, Woods needs a solo 11th-place finish to play next week.
The reigning Masters champion was expected to undergo treatment Tuesday and participate in Wednesday's pro-am, with a 7:50 a.m. ET tee time. He has a tee time of 11:54 a.m. ET for Thursday's opening round, going off with Billy Horschel and C.T. Pan.
Since winning his 15th major, Woods has played in five events, missing the cut at the PGA Championship and Open Championship, tying for ninth at the Memorial, tying for 21st at the U.S. Open and withdrawing last week.
