Day says Woods is 'feeling best he has in years'

Tiger Woods wakes up every morning pain-free for the first time in three years, friend and fellow former world No.1 Jason Day has revealed.

Woods will make his return to competitive golf at next week’s Hero World Challenge after ten months out following a fourth back surgery.

And, if what Day says is true, Woods’ latest comeback will last longer than previous attempts – which was just three months and seven rounds.

Speaking ahead of the Australian Open, Day said: “I did talk to him and he did say it's the best he's ever felt in three years. He doesn't wake up with pain anymore, which is great.

“I totally understand where he's coming from because sometimes I wake up and it takes me about 10 minutes to get out of bed. For him to be in pain for three years is very frustrating.”

Woods played four rounds in last year’s Hero World Challenge, finishing 15th in the 18-man field on four-under-par – 14 shots behind winner Hideki Matsuyama.
