article imageTiger Woods elbow is healed, set to go at British Open this week

By Marcus Hondro     Jul 14, 2013 in Sports
The 142nd Open Championship goes at Muirfield in Gullane, Scotland from the 18th to 21st and Tiger Woods will be there. Woods hurt an elbow at the U.S. Open last month and hasn't played since but says the rest has him healthy and ready to go.
"I started chipping and putting a little over a week ago and I'm full go for the British Open." Woods wrote on his website. "I'm very confident that my left elbow strain won't be a problem and I will be able to hit all the shots I need to hit.
"That's why I took the time off, so it could heal, and I would feel comfortable playing again. I'm still taking anti-inflammatory medication for my elbow and getting treatment, but the big thing at Muirfield Golf Club will be to avoid the rough."
Woods has returned to form this season, winning 5 times in 2013, including three straight wins in March and The Players Championship in May. In the season's two majors to date, Tiger finished in a tie for 4th at the Masters in April and a tie for 32nd at the June 13-16 U.S. Open, the last tournament he played.
He has played the Muirfield course once previous, at The 2002 Open Championship when he finished in a tie for 28th. The 37-year-old has won The Open Championship three times, in 2000, 2005 and 2006. Stalled at 14 major wins and chasing Jack Nicklaus' record of 18, he has not won a major since taking the 2008 U.S. Open.
