But a relaxed-looking Woods, who finished past year on a high after leading the United States to Presidents Cup victory in Melbourne, said on Tuesday that pulling clear of Snead is the last thing on his mind at Torrey Pines.

It appears McIlroy will skip the WGC-FedEx St. Jude, where he finished tied for fourth a year ago, due to the schedule crunch.

Woods, who spent almost two years out of the game in 2016 and 2017 as he battled a longstanding back injury, said that his biggest challenge was maintaining consistency over four rounds of a tournament at his age.

Schauffele did lament how many trees have been lost at Torrey Pines, but added, "It's a different feel to it; you see more of the ocean". DeLaet's warmup appeared to be going smoothly before one swing seemed to cause him obvious pain. He was grimacing as he walked to a nearby golf cart and left the driving range.

Mackenzie Hughes, Roger Sloan, and Michael Gligic are the Canadians in the field this week.

The first starting time is ideal because the front nine is open.

Ranked third in the world behind Koepka and Dustin Johnson after missing the cut at The Open, McIlroy has been on an impressive run since then, with just two finishes outside of the top 10 in 10 starts.

"In all honesty, man, I didn't and I don't", he told Postmedia in Las Vegas. After winning The Masters, Woods took it slow the rest of 2019, but he still won the ZOZO Championship late in the year and finished fourth in the Hero World Challenge in his last event of 2019. "I was a little bit fried physically, mentally, emotionally and just wanted to have it all end".

Last season, the Irishman played one of the best golfers of his career, earning four wins and receiving the PGA Tour Player of the Year award.

But right now the most important thing is his health and golf fans across Canada are certainly in DeLaet's corner. Woods' comeback has been thoroughly documented, and for now, his future looks bright, fused back and all. It's the eighth time he's broken 70 in first round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

"Even to get to the number I'm at right now, 15, is a lot", he said. "He's got a set of moves that work really well". [.] And then, once I won the Tour Championship and then in China [WGC-HSBC Champions], I kind of saw that gap closing. And for me, that's like 172, 175 ball speed.

Rose also detailed his own lesser-known struggles with a bad back.

"I just wanted to get away from it". He will play five straight weeks at the Irish Open, the Memorial, the Canadian Open the US Open and the Travelers Championship.

In his role as playing captain, Woods went 3-0 in his matches at Royal Melbourne and played a crucial role as the US retained the trophy.

No discussion of back injuries would be complete with hearing from former world No. 1 Jason Day.

Day was a late withdrawal from both the Australian Open and Presidents Cup over the summer due to the back complaint, describing his feelings of anger and frustration at having to watch the worldwide team fall just short against the Tiger Woods-led USA team at Royal Melbourne.

"I said to myself after Portrush: 'Why would I be careful? Unfortunately, my back went out four or five times past year so it was nice to be able to take that time off and get ready for this season". "So it was nice to be able to take that time off and get ready for this season". The 25-year-old Rahm is notoriously long.

"I'm hoping I'm going to play good this week", Day said.

"I'm coming off eight weeks of rehab and very little practice, so am I expecting a lot? If he decides to let one go, I just don't have that gear anymore". If you golf and your back doesn't hurt, be thankful.

The moral of the story?
