Tiger Woods plays at PGA Championship despite back injury

Yahoo SportsAugust 7, 2014

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Tiger Woods arrived at Valhalla on Thursday with far less fanfare, and a lot more attention.

The PGA Championship got underway when club pro Brian Norman hit the opening tee shot down the middle. Woods was in the feature group in the morning with Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington. It's rare when Woods and Mickelson are in the same group at a major, though the hype was different this time.
