  • He says neck problem started to bother him at Riviera and in Mexico City
  • Woods is now pain free but admitted he will have to manager his body carefully 
  • With a fused lower back, the stress from a golf swing has to go somewhere

Tiger Woods spoke openly on Tuesday about the neck injury that caused him to pull out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational last week, and admitted it was something he was going to have to manage for the rest of his career.

‘It’s a consequence of the fact that I now have a fused back, and that the stress has to go somewhere,’ he said.

‘Even though the lower back is now fixed, one of the issues of that procedure is there’s no movement down there, and so it’s very important for me going forward to keep all the other structures pliable and that I stay as loose as I possibly can.
