Something about the PGA Tour's shift to the east coast - and the Honda Classic in particular - makes it feel like we're entering the heart of the season.

"I missed it, and it's becoming familiar again".

Although he didn't manage to join that group, Woods called it the best ball-striking round of his latest comeback, which has included a tie for 23rd at Torrey Pines last month and a missed cut at Riviera in Los Angeles last week.

"I just missed the rush of competing for a Green Jacket", he said Wednesday of his injury-enforced absences. Shanahan has also been a volunteer at the Honda Classic in recent years.

If you've been itching, just itching, to bet your money on Tiger Woods, this is the first week that I won't call you insane for doing it. So it was a long period of time where I was really struggling. "Some of those putts were a little bit bouncy". Winds will stay in the 5-10 miles per hour range each day, with some occasional higher gusts for the afternoon, but nothing the players aren't used to. "I was able to do all that today, so that was very pleasing". A team spokesman said the league understood the special circumstances surrounding the number and its significance to the Nance family and agreed the change should take place. As I mentioned, bogeys are going to happen this weekend but what these players have to avoid are the blow up holes which can happen at any time.

Augusta looms less than two months away, and worldwide players are starting to hop over to the United States to prepare.

It will be a new experience for Kizzire, though he feels he is not entirely unprepared.

"I've got some work to do".

"I came over here to try to play some more American-style courses; firm greens, more rough, and to improve my driving and improve my long game", 35-year-old Noren said.

Woods counts four Masters titles among his 14 major championships, but he hasn't played at Augusta National since 2015. I feel like that's putting yourself under an very bad lot of pressure. I know most of the guys have been playing tournament golf a lot more than I have. "Finally I got the diagnosis, which isn't ideal but is better than having something that's terminal". As I said, I'm looking forward to April, trying to get my game solid for April.

Rickie Fowler returns to defend his title against a field that features Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Masters champion Sergio Garcia - who will be making his first USA start of 2018.

"Today was not easy".

He's not flashy and generally plays in the shadow of fellow players Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, k and Ricky Fowler, but Justin Thomas is quietly putting together another strong and consistent season.
