MEDINAH, Ill. – Tiger Woods arrived at the Medinah Provincial Club on Tuesday afternoon and said that it wasn't until Tuesday morning that he decided to play at the BMW Championship this week.
Woods retired last Friday from Northern Depend on a slight slant after shooting 75 in the opening round of the first FedEx Cup playoffs.

Throughout 2018 Woods rarely showed some discomfort and even during the Masters this year – I have been out of six tournaments – there seems to be no major back problems.
But starting with the PGA at Bethpage in May, Woods has never looked the same. Its swinging speed has been reduced a year ago and its results are rising. Unlike the Masters, where Brooke Koepka, Dustin Johnson, and Xander Schaufele, the 70th man final, for his 15th major, Woods has not competed in any other stroke race. He tied for fifth place at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, where he reached the quarterfinals.
Woods never reported any sloping problems – they are muscles in the abdomen and are responsible for controlling and rotating the nucleus – – but he has repeatedly said that although his spine is fused, "strength must go somewhere "and that this leads to some other problems that he has experienced. Major muscle tension often occurs due to repetitive rotation.
"He's smart," Woods's agent said Mark Steinberg on Friday. "I used to say that years ago he would just keep playing through it all. If he had the same mentality he had years and years ago, he would not play golf at all. He said it again the next day, this is the new normal. he has had numerous surgeries all over his body. These things are not exhausting enough now to avoid him for months, but just enough that he cannot compete at the level at which he must compete. must be placed in a position where it can be exposed for a long period t time. If you feel that you should not go, should not go. "
