“I’m not moving as well as I’d like,” Woods told the Golf Channel. “Father Time and some procedures I’ve had over time, it’s just the wait’s going to be here from here on out.”

The 15-time major champion said his warmup wasn’t very good and that he was “just trying to piece together a swing that will get me around a golf course.”
